Service Operations (Current Employee), Olathe, KS – August 16, 2014
Pros: the people you work with, good vacation time, health benefits.
Cons: everything else.
There is a great work/life balance and the benefits are good but this isn't enough to keep the scales even. If the recruiters still don't tell people about what this job is really like, know that you can probably only thrive if you enjoy call center work. Most people will agree that the best part of the job is the people you work with but, due to the – more... nature of the job and the suffocating environment, the people you work with are highly likely to be there only for a couple of years. – less

Pros: professional enviorment
Cons: lack of management
I have been working as an Office Assistant at Farmer's Insurance and I really love working there. I would come to work about 30 minutes early everyday and wait for my supervisor to open the door. On a typical day, when I get a lot of phone calls from clients regarding their polices or claims. I tend to fall behind on filing, since there is always forms – more... to be file. But I've learned to manage that with transferring some calls to my co workers. I've learned so much about the company and its products. As an Office Assistant, my duty is to do basic general office work. Having to work together is a way to learn from one another. Also accomplish our goal or meet deadlines. – less

Farmers is one on the largest insurance companies. They have a strong competitive advantage because of the strength of their company. Farmers has a solid business plan and has instituted a strong training and employee relationship program which allows their employees to feel secure and at ease.
