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

    Pros

    You have your pin schedule and work as many hours as you want as long as you hit sales quotas. They start you off with a book of business that makes money as of day one.

    Cons

    Company only cares about life insurance sales. System is really outdated and commissions are a lot lower than with other companies.

    Pros

    The culture is one of the best reasons to work here. Upper management is accessible and open to ideas from every level of the company.

    Cons

    The pressure on agents to sell life insurance is pretty high. If you are not comfortable selling life insurance, than this probably is the career for you.

    Advice to Management

    Be more consistent with standards across the state. What is unacceptable in some counties is completely normal in other counties.

    Pros

    I learned a lot while working here! The staff is great and they were very accommodating to my schedule as a college student.

    Cons

    The sales department is set away from the rest of the company so you didn't meet people outside that department.

    I worked at Texas Farm Bureau Insurance (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has been in operation for almost 70 years. The company has never laid off employees. The benefits are very good. There are claims positions in all areas of the state.

    Cons

    The home office of the company is located in Waco, TX, which is not one of the more popular cities.

    Pros

    start up package gives you money to get started without investing your own cash office expenses are minimal at first

    Cons

    the most corrupt company in Texas, the dare you to ask them to follow the contract , if you do they will fire you. You are 1099 but receive no benefits and will be fired sooner or later. Nothing more than the pyramid scams everything they say is a lie and they force you to pay dues for incentives

    Advice to Management

    look in the mirror and realize you have sold your soul for a dollar and believe the lies you are told and believe yourself. You know this is all a scam clean up you act or you will live with it.

    Pros

    You get training and pay at the same time, you just have to be careful not to stay very long on the job.

    Cons

    Corruption, corruption, corruption, did I say corruption. You will not be self employed as an agent you will either die or be fired. If you try to retire they will fire you. They hope you will violate the non-compete so they can go after you. The do not want to pay after you leave

    Advice to Management

    Admit to yourself you are a sinful lot. Read your scriptures paying close attention to Paul's letters to his followers. Quit and repent it is the only chance to escape eternal punishment.

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

    Pros

    The flexibility and and autonomy was wonderful. Pay was great w/ raises ever year if you perform

    Cons

    No upward mobility, the upper management is all old so their views are outdated and they don't retire for a long time. Can get stuck

    Advice to Management

    Allow for individual upward movement. Get the old guys out of office and put some younger view points up there
