    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been at Farmers for more than a decade. The changes inside the company during that time have been astounding . I really feel our leadership understands what they need to do to attract and keep talent in this rapidly changing marketplace. They've relaxed the dress code, improved technology, reworked benefits and really focused on diversity and inclusion efforts at all levels of the company. I've never really felt the desire to leave (which I had at both previous employers). Things I like:
    - I'm extremely challenged in my role.
    - I feel my talents are being used to the fullest extent.
    - I feel valued.
    - I got a lot of time off (I actually struggle to use the 30 days I receive each year).
    - I get to work at home a lot.
    - I'm given a lot of autonomy in my role.
    - I'm given opportunity.
    - I get to support my community and my favorite charities on behalf of Farmers.
    - I feel fairly compensated.

    Cons

    - Work/life balance can be a little off. Sometimes I ask, "what balance?"
    - Benefits are decent. Probably could be better. My litmus test is that I perceive my husband's employer-provided benefits better than what I receive.
    - Offices outside of Home Office (Los Angeles) have less opportunity than Home Office, especially in my business unit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to transform the company for the better.

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

    Pros

    Got the offer - did not accept, but not because they weren’t great to interview with!

    The supervising staff are very down to earth and easy to talk to. They’re not misleading and truly seem to take an interest in their applicants. It just so happened I had to go another route that same week on an opportunity that couldn’t be passed up.

    Lots of autonomy it sounded like - your cases your dispositions. Go to trial a lot! So some good experience was underway. The staff seemed warm and helpful.

    Cons

    Salary is non negotiable? Which is weird, apparently they put your resume in some algorithm and don’t stray from it.

    I felt like I brought a lot more to the table that could have pushed the standard up higher but that wasn’t the case. It basically comes down to the years you’ve been barred and trial numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing! You’re attracting good talent! If you can be more competitive with your salary it would seal the deal!
