    Pros

    A great place to start in the industry. Solid training program and some great people while I was there.

    Cons

    Environment got a little unstable with a lot of management changes before I left. A lot of turn over. Had to prove yourself every month. No excuses for a bad month even in you had 12 great ones previously.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize.

    Pros

    In an agent role at IFB you get the best hands-on training and support. It is not a place where you get licensed, start the job, they say "good luck", and let you loose. You learn A LOT! With that said, they are really focused on bringing in people who would contribute to the success of the company for many years. Because of that, there is a great family-like, company culture. Where other insurance companies are rather cut-throat, everyone here wants to see you succeed. Another perk- specifically to the agent role- is that the pay is not all commission based. That was a huge benefit because often times sales positions don't offer that stability. This is my first job out of college and I already know I'll be here for a long time.

    Cons

    The demographic of the agents here tends to be older men. I know management is in the process of bringing in move diverse employees... but for now, you won't find a ton of young people.

    Pros

    Best place I have ever worked. The leadership is the best in the business! You will not find a more family oriented work force who genuinely cares about you. Everyone is truly invested in the customers and each other.

    Cons

    It used to be a very conservative culture, as with any insurance company. Has been making strides to catch up with the growing expectations of its workforce and customers.

    Pros

    good people from top to bottom regardless of the poor systems they are forced to use they look at the glass as half full

    Cons

    Premiums non competitive. Systems antiquated. One would think with a name starting with Farm that FBI would have the best technology in quoting a Farm policy. Strictly the opposite. Quoting takes place on an non user friendly quoting system. Then the info entered must be handwritten on a paper application... redundancy. Other much better companies out there

    Advice to Management

    Stop purchasing software and then modifying it. Pick the correct software and learn it. Adjust your rating to be competitive. Don't raise then lower to buy back disgruntled former clients
