I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Local boss was great help. Online training was very informative. Able to control hours and level of effort. Fantastic commercials help create positive reception from those who have seen them.

Cons

Rate increase immediately after starting with company, went from competitive to non-competitive in a matter of days. Even with commercials, the confusion with competition was still there. Computer system seemed to be a bit antiquated.

Advice to Management

Seems local management has a hard time getting help from regional managers. Saturation of agents may be at too high a rate.

    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well known company established work place with good job security. When company does well they share their success with stip payments; enables you to balance work and family life

    Cons

    The opportunity to advance is contingent upon who you know and not always on the skills you posses for the position.

    Advice to Management

    Give your managers training in how to manage and open the door to feedback from the employees more than managers

    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, wonderful people to work with, lots of opportunity for growth, competitive pay, cares what the employees think and want, focused on growth- individual and company

    Cons

    One down side is that it's a straight 40 hour work week, 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. Other companies I have been at offered the option of working from home, or working nine tens to have one day off every other week.

    Advice to Management

    Keep asking and listening to the feedback the employees have.
