    I have been working at SFM Mutual Insurance full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    This is a company that truly cares about its employees. Management actually gets to know employees and is interested in hearing ideas and feedback. There are a lot of opportunities to get involved, as management highly encourages growth and learning. Many employees choose to stay for many years (myself included) yet we're getting many fresh faces in the door due to continued growth and retirements. There is a lot of flexibility...

    Cons

    Honestly the only downside is my long commute to Bloomington, but that's a choice I make to live in the north metro.

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate the opportunity to work here. I actually enjoy coming to work, even after many years of working at SFM.

    I have been working at SFM Mutual Insurance full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Insurance can get a bad rap for companies that are more focused on the bottom line over service to policyholders. SFM is unique in how it focuses on service and doing the right thing for claimants to improve their outcomes. Employees are given resources and rewarded for show empathy to claimants. SFM Management is fairly flat and executives are well known around the company which creates a more open environment. ...

    Cons

    Dress code isn’t as loose as some competitors for non-customer facing days. Due to tenure and flat management, leadership positions do not open often. That is offset a bit by the ability to grow and learn.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for learning and growth. A genuine commitment to community enrichment. Thoughtful leadership. A terrific reputation in the industry. Excellent work/life balance.

    Cons

    When people ask me what I do for a living, it's kind of hard to explain. Until I came to work at SFM, I would never have guessed that I'd be the person at the dinner party trying to describe why my job with a regional commercial insurance carrier is so cool.

    I have been working at SFM Mutual Insurance full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, good benefits, good people, great culture. I never check my email at night and rarely work on the weekends (in IT this is nearly unheard of). Training (classes, conferences, etc.) is encouraged, highly encouraged (at least in IT). They have the resources to do things right. Employees are really valued and maintaining a great culture is very important to the company and to the high...

    Cons

    It's business casual (except on Fridays) and I think I'd prefer it more casual...small price to pay though for this diamond in the rough.

    I have been working at SFM Mutual Insurance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    SFM has a lot of tenured and experienced employees but also promotes a healthy learning environment for young employees just starting out in the insurance industry. They support employee growth and development through encouraging employees to learn about positions beyond their own either through the mentor program, lunch & learns or just walking into someone's office and asking about what they do. I could not have picked...

    Cons

    They are improving their ability/flexibility to work from home which I think will be important for the next generation of potential employees.
