    Pros

    Great company with great people. There is a clear line of sight to the customers as well as to executive leadership. The company is focused on Customer Experience as well as Employee Engagement. What more can you ask for?

    Cons

    Like many companies there is a "Global" entity that prevents you from doing certain things.

    Advice to Management

    IT is doing well. Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Autonomy if you are working with a good district manager.

    Cons

    Typically a lack of benefits if you are working in a district office.

    Advice to Management

    The district manager structure is amazing, unique and allows the DM's to have a special relationship with agents.

    Pros

    Contract Value builds fast, independent contractor at times. You determine the hours you work and hire your own team. Hard work pays and bonus structure is very nice. You can sell the agency on the open market.

    Cons

    Unstable rates which lead to unhappy customers. It’s a industry wide problem that haunts most agents. Over reacting to profit concerns causes unnecessary run off of customers. Closing ratios could be better

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your sales team not just the ones who tell you what you want to hear.

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

    Pros

    Farmers Insurance insures nearly all lines of business. They are a proponent of continued education and career growth.

    Cons

    The company as a whole is headquartered in California with a few key hubs in various mid-western states. Starting a career outside of these key areas inevitably leads to hitting a ceiling of growth where one will need to move to Los Angeles, Grand Rapids, MI, Oklahoma City, or Phoenix.

    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time

    Pros

    I was licensed to sell casualty, property, and life insurance. I also was certified to sell health and supplemental insurance. I enjoyed meeting people and trying to help them, I did enjoy selling the life insurance products more.

    Cons

    The product was expensive for the market that I was trying to sell to and I was working on commission. And I was a captive 'seller'...(I wasn't the agent).. so I had to focus on only selling Farmer's. The Voya products were easier to sell.

    Advice to Management

    Firgure out what it is that Farmer's Insurance offers that Direct Insurance does not. (accident forgiveness, cash back...something) Direct insurance is cheaper and many people don't want to pay more if they don't have to.
