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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and 4 weeks of vacation from the start

    Cons

    High turnover so each department is always understaffed, extremely high workload, management is sub-par to mediocre at best, it takes a long time to train for each position (1 year at least) before you are comfortable to do the job on your own

    Advice to Management

    Hire and train people before we lose current employees, listen to and fix the concerns of the current employees

    Stick to our founding values, quit supporting political organizations that can alienate parts of our customer base.

    Pros

    Helpful, friendly colleagues. Focus on excellence. Honesty and integrity. Customer focused.

    Cons

    Extremely bureaucratic. Leadership team, though competent, is uninspiring. Too much focus on work that does not directly lead to profitability or growth. Overstaffed, leading to higher expenses. Lack of serious capital allocation practices.

    Advice to Management

    Give priority to work that directly impacts the bottom and top lines. Sharpen your focus on capital allocation and tracking return on investment.
