    Advice to Management

    Like I said not a horrible place to work and I worked with a lot of good people, but personally half my team was dead weight and the work load would fall on the rest of us. These I speak of were rude and disrespectful when ever approached them for a favor I would just be shut down. The same people who preached the "Team Environment" were the most selfish lazy individuals. They would continually ask for help after the fact even though they would never do the same for you and would try to get by doing the bare minimum. It would of been a great place to work without the dead weight and in my eyes there was too much to correct. I would recommend Farm Bureau to others depending on which team they are interested in joining

    I worked at Farm Bureau Insurance of Michigan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Home office employees are amazing.
    really good products and coverages

    Cons

    They only care about life insurance. All bonuses and commission rates are tied to life insurance policies sold. You can 0 p&c policies and be employed forever if you hit the life numbers.
    Life Insurance sales quotas are disproportionately high.
    Not all agents are captive.
    Agents treated very different.
    Technology is ancient

    Advice to Management

    Actually support the agents you recruit, not just those that you pick as stand-outs. Understand your market, your customers, and don't play favorites/break rules for favorites.

    Pros

    The company seems to care about the growth and well being of their employees. It definitely has a family feel to the company, things don't seem so transactional.

    The company seems to give promotions to people that aren't as qualified. Advancement is very hard with this company.
