    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company company to have a long term career in the insurance industry. Agency Owner is probably the best position in the entire company. Self-employed. Strong stable commission structure where you can build a 6 figure income by growing your client base via your marketing efforts. Company will buyout your agency for a set price based on your client base or your transfer your agency to a family member. Large group of insurance companies with the ability work in other areas of Farmers (such as claims) if Agency Owner is not a good fit. The insurance industry is a stable industry to build a long term career and with HARD WORK Farmers Insurance can be a rewarding long term career.

    Cons

    Starting any business is hard and the insurance industry is a very competitive marketplace. Requires long hours to get started and consistent marketing efforts to grow a client base. Gaining & retaining clients can be a challenge as a captive agent, especially in areas where Farmers rates are higher than industry averages. You must a self-starter, financially motivated, a solid business person and a good marketer in order to reach the 6 figure income level. Requires financial resources to get licensed as well as open your own office. Background, financial and credit requirements can be a challenge.

    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time

    Pros

    PTO starts at 19 days a year, then after 5 years it is 24, then after 10 years it is 29. Plus add an extra day to all of the above for your "floating" holiday plus all Federal holidays and then some. I'm getting 6 weeks paid vacation while some friends in other industries or other companies are only getting 2-3.

    Cons

    Little ability to move up the ladder unless you are willing to re-locate.

    Advice to Management

    N/A

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

    Pros

    If you need a job and have no Insurance experience they will hire you and also a person with over 8 yrs of previous P&C Insurance and pay both of you the same.

    Cons

    They could care less about you working late hours during a catastrophic event in the country. The job should be listed under Claims Serv. Associate but they know they wpuld have to pay more.

    Advice to Management

    Take a class on diversity and implement it. Management is all mid-age white men and that's not changing in good old Oklahoma.

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

    Pros

    Health benefits are pretty standard. I enjoyed working with my prior peers.

    Cons

    High turn over and hardly any room to grow if your not a natural at keeping your calls short. Scheduling is awful especially if you are new.

    Advice to Management

    There are some genuinely hard working and loyal individuals that are treated unfairly because they follow your rules/procedures but are not meeting your "standards."
