Pros: Diversity of work and ability to work with many teams
Cons: Employee Engagement
Farmers Insurance is a great place to work. In the early years, the opportunity for advancement was great and I was able to take advantage of that with hard work and dedication. Those opportunities have become less available due to the elimination of some positions.
I enjoy my co-workers, but overall employee engagement is low. There is problem with management not following through on promises. This has gotten better after the employee engagement hit an all time low a couple of years ago, but is still not where it should be.
In a typical day I work directly with multiple teams including, IT, Underwriting, Claims, Internal Audit, Training and the Executive team regarding technical issues.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the diversity of the projects I work on and the analytic skills I apply every day. As a communications major, I have learned the ins and outs of system implementation, information technology, project management, claims, underwriting, vendor implementation/management and employee management.
I do greatly appreciate the projects my management team has allowed me to participate in to learn all of these skills.
