    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You could easily with hard work and application, move forward, as well as, transfer departments. The leadership truly pushed you to excel.

    Cons

    The atmosphere of the employees could be a little high school at times. The training was rushed, it kind of became a trail by fire issue.

    Pros

    Work hard and there will be opportunities. Plenty of opportunities if you live near a larger office. Many people make a career here.

    Cons

    The work is stressful at times but it is good to be busy. This is a large company so you have to toot your own horn at times for recognition

    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, including a large pool of PTO usable from the beginning of the year and which would carry over (up to a certain amount) and would increase every 5 years. Employers who will listen to those working for them, and were willing to change and adapt to make the environment better.

    Cons

    Some legacy systems that still haven't been integrated in with current technology.
    PTO and sick leave is used from the same pool, and if too many have already taken off on a day you need, it's counted as unexcused.
    Action plans, once set, are on record forever -- if issue is corrected, you can still face consequences the next time the issue occurs even if years down the line (does not reset to the first warning).
