    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    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

    Great company to work for as long as you can deal with the corporate politics

    Cons

    You have to watch less qualified candidates take positions that you are a better fit for due to corporate politics and favors owed.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and promote based on merit and who is the best person for the position. Your team is only as strong as its weakest link and you should want to most qualified and talented people for the positions because it will only make your team stronger.
