Insurance Agent Assistant (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAOctober 14, 2017
Unless you are the Agent and basically your own boss with Farmers it isn't a job i would suggest. If you have your license and don't have someone you have to answer to every day it is a job that you can make a lot of money doing and have tons of free time on the side.
Pros
Freedom to make a path for your future.
Cons
Only worth working there if you have your license and your own agent.

Excellent company to work for
Senior Insurance Sales Agent (Former Employee) –  UtahOctober 14, 2017
It was a great and wonderful experience to have had the opportunity to work with one of the largest companies in the United States. It is the only company that has a university to form professional insurance agents that requires and demands the very competitive market of the insurance industry today.
I am very pleased to have had that opportunity of training and work experience in this company that I am passionate about.
Pros
Great traininig and educational system.

Farmers Insurance Agent (Current Employee) –  Alpine, TXOctober 13, 2017
Being self-employed is a great perk, if you have a side job that pays you really well. The cost of being self-employed is greater than any benefit. I can't afford this job.

no freedom
Accounting (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAOctober 10, 2017
There is procedure for everything. No room for creativity. The hours are incredibly long. Because working from home is so widespread, it's difficult to get business done. Interaction suffers. The industry is suffering due to global warming and natural disasters.
There are lots of opportunities to get involved such as toastmasters and volunteerism.
Pros
work from home
Cons
extremely long hours

Great place to work if you are extremely competitive. The culture there is very positive and everyone is always ready to help fellow employees out. The hardest part of the job is how competitive the insurance industry is.

Agent (Former Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TXOctober 10, 2017
More interested in bringing in new agents with no experience or training than supporting longer tenured agents. Over saturated the DFW with agents with no interest in keeping a successful agent force.

Director of eBusiness (Former Employee) –  Caledonia, MIOctober 10, 2017
Employees good people. Provides opportunities for advancement. A lot of the companies focus is on it's core products and trying to compete with other companies offering the same products and services. They are playing catch-up in their systems area, as their technology is several years behind the leaders in the industry.
Pros
Provides opportunities for advancement
Cons
Conservative and not innovative.

Workforce downsizing
Special Adjuster (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXOctober 10, 2017
Farmers is focusing on channeling claims to streamline process. This means that there are less claims for field claims reps to work. Additionally the claims left for the field to work are far more complicated.

Management/ Communication
Data Analyst (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHOctober 9, 2017
Management does not communicate to all employees and he/she is unavailable to help guide or find a resolution to current problems. Fails to respond in a timely manner. Cross distant relationships interfere with operational tasks and favoritism is displayed often. Voluntary leave or lay offs are random and often.
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
Unreliable management, often distinguishes people as a FTE count instead of an individual.
