    I worked at Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good work-life balance. Updated corporate office space. Benefits are good, fitness center provides good opportunity, and is staffed. Great location, close to downtown without downtown parking challenges. Pay can be both a pro or a con, depends on the position and the individual.

    Cons

    I saw several long term (10 year or more) employees and management leave for better opportunities due to the limited growth opportunities. Management showed favoritism for some with little oversight and ever changing objectives for those not in favor.

    Advice to Management

    Look into the dysfunctional managers who are driving employees away. There is a trend and there is a story behind it.

    I worked at Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of investment into growth of the employees. I learned a lot while i was there from the provided resources. The company bonus is insane (20%!!) and they actually get that bonus! I have been to other companies where they promise a bonus but at the year end they always say there is no budget. This place really pays out their bonus.

    Cons

    Pay was well below average, when my annual review came due the raise offered was a standard 4% however my market value was 150% of what I was earning. I took the job with no experience but after a year I cannot be expected to continue to work for such low wages.

    Advice to Management

    IT salaries move more than the "industry standard" that HR tries to dole out. If you don't pay competitive wages then you will continue to see attrition for in demand jobs.
