    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.

    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time

    Pros

    - Good Benefits
    - Coworkers that care
    - Great management - currently

    Cons

    - Long hours are a possibility
    - Hard to promote
    - Like any corporation, raises/promotions can be political

    Advice to Management

    Increase maternity leave benefits. Would like the option of 6 months to a year unpaid with option to come back to work at the same position. Create a paternity leave benefit. I really like that the company wants to develop leadership skills in their employees, however, I have seen several cases of very talented employees unable to promote in their desired area. This has led to a decrease in employee morale. I think our benefits package is very good overall and I really like current management at my level and at the Senior level. As jobs can be demanding, allowing a leave of absence for personal time, unpaid, would be a great benefit to add.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the stability at Farmers. Everyone is extremely welcoming and open to helping you out with whatever you need help with.

    Cons

    Farmers is an extremely old company, it takes a lot of time and energy to implement more innovative thinking and strategies to every day processes.

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

    Pros

    Pto can be used before it's actually earned per month.
    Benefits are not bad
    Starting pay is above average I would say

    Cons

    Terrible atmosphere makes the job not tolerable. Unless you suck up and gossip you're treated like dirt. Worst management that does not take action when you address a problem. Much illegal stuff goes on but the HR rep is buddies with the managers and just gossip.

    It's like a middle school.

    You have to work holidays

    You have to write reviews on yourself monthly for them to go over your performance constantly.

    Pros

    Great benefits package and consistent bonuses. I have been with the company for 10 years and though there are years we don't bonus as high we have never missed a bonus payout.

    Cons

    Though we have a singular focus at times the tasks given are a little all over the place. Promotions are not negotiable, which can be frustrating to long standing employees. You get the sense you have to leave the company to make more, even though you wish you could just stay put.

    Advice to Management

    The tasks that come down to the field are all over the place, which makes it hard to focus on our primary objectives.
