    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group FCU full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good hours, and you're working as a Farmer's employee for the Credit Union and Farmer's benefits are quite good.

    Cons

    Poor management in all aspects of the company except Operations. They have ignored issues long enough now that no one at the branch level is the same as it was two or three years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Listen. It's not hard.

    Pros

    Very little pros. Prospects for Farmers agents and employees are very poor! Hopefully Zurich will sell them off after feasting on them for the last several years

    Cons

    Out of touch management , uncompetitive pricing, underwriters that don't care if you issue policies or not! Bad training and antiquated 1980 business model

    Advice to Management

    Middle management need to take reponsibiliies for loss of market share and poor retention instead of blaming agencies, revamp claims dept. it's bad!

    The company is professional and staff is knowledgeable on what they do.

    One member of upper manager makes life impossible for half of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of managers who do not know how to respect staff.

    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group FCU full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The name has history therefore easy to sell their products.

    Cons

    Lower managers are known to be deceitful and from experience yes they are. You must sign a contract that does not allow you to take any oft your clients with you when you leave the company. If you manage a large book of business that you have signed to Farmers you can forget about your large book of business. Also if they are using you for a short time to build up business then I feel for you. Soon you will be history and all your policies will be distributed among Managers favorite guys.

    Advice to Management

    Try a more ethical and less likely to take your money company like Mercury, AAA and State Farm

    Pros

    A real team atmosphere. Bonuses are available to those that reach their sales requirements. Trips, vacations, all sorts of events. If you have previous hard sales and cold calling experience, it may be a good fit for you.

    Cons

    unobtainable sales requirements There's a reason many prospective agents are weeded out very swiftly. If an agency is opened, it must remain open and not change locations. Due to public thinking the company is failing. Con. Paid once a month.

    Advice to Management

    be honest and transparent with new hires on expectations
