    I worked at North Carolina Farm Bureau Insurance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good place to start a career and gain experience. Stable growth company with nice, professional co-workers. It's an ok J.O.B. if....

    Cons

    ...you're not expecting much advancement (if any) or a decent salary.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure, overall it's not a bad place to work. It's just not a very dynamic company. That's ok though because they are stable and unless you're a bad employee you can generally rest assured you will have a job. Wouldn't hurt to catch up with technology a bit quicker.

    I have been working at North Carolina Farm Bureau Insurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good, benefits are AWESOME, people friendly, good strong Christian company! This company actually CARES about our lives outside of the office and encourages us to have balance.

    Cons

    The pay is probably a little lower than some companies HOWEVER the benefits make up for this. The initial training when starting is virtually none.

    Advice to Management

    More precise, on the job training with the agent hired to work for, working with other AA's, etc. The Raleigh training is wonderful, but it's the day to day things that need to be learned ASAP and not as you go. It's quite frustrating.

    Pros

    Pension plan! Good job security. More independent authority given to adjusters than most companies with helps with job satisfaction.

    Cons

    workload can be heavy at times. Technology has been behind the times but is improving now. New claims system is much better.

    I have been working at North Carolina Farm Bureau Insurance full-time

    Pros

    Very flexible with making my own schedule; some office time but mostly working in the field and I set up my own appointments. I have a lot of independent decision responsibility and don't have to get manager approval first, up to a stated authority level. Company car is a great perk.

    Cons

    There are some "politics" in the company that you have to deal with, but I guess that is true in most companies. Also promoted as a "family" environment, which can be good or bad sometimes depending on how you feel about your "family". Can be tricky navigating between "family" and "business" rules especially about HR stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Forget "paperless" and go with "paper less". The more mobile technology available to employees the better. Face to face personal approach is becoming less important to the general public but it is still a point of emphasis here.

    I have been working at North Carolina Farm Bureau Insurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have not seen a pro from this situation yet. I'm here for you Steve G.

    Cons

    Sharing a coworkers struggles with payment for a claim. Interrogation of him and his family from their stolen vehicle with the assumption they had insight of it. No effort to work in favor of a long term client or care for the family during this loss.

    Advice to Management

    Having corporate step in when situations arise as this to handle process better than how it is being handled now. Poor Representation from their claims department
