    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with! People in my unit/ department work well together. If full time you are eligible for yearly STIP bonus base on salary and yearly growth of company. As a full time employee , great benefits package, including PTO, 401K, floating holiday. Volunteer activities to give back to the community. Business casual dress code

    Cons

    Too much wage compression as whole. Lack of decent pay raises. If you come in as entry level employee it's difficult to get promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management is to be more transparent with employees regarding pay grades, promotions, what it takes to move through the organization. You may attract sustainable talent if one knows a specific salary range rather than this 28, 33, 35 pay grade system. People understand dollars vs. the random numbers.

    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to work a flexible schedule and spend more time with family and loved ones...

    Cons

    Unless you have the money to invest or want to go into serious debt, do NOT sign a contract with this company....

    Advice to Management

    Explain EXACTLY what will happen should a contract be broken and the debt that will follow. Be more personable.... If an employee has a child go into ICU, on life support and is diagnosed with a serious illness, have a heart, be more understanding and try to accommodate a new agent that can afford staff......instead of breaking their contract and adding more debt to a family all ready facing a crisis.! Does this sound like someone you'd want to work for???

  8. "Agent"

    Pros

    Almost complete autonomy. Pay structure, like most, is based on production and the numbers that must be met are dictated by the company.

    Cons

    You receive a subsidy (base) that you WILL pay back if you do not hit the numbers they envision for you.
