Let me start off by saying that Farmers is basically a good and decent company. Unfortunately, the company does not hire competent managers.
It is next to impossible to transfer to other jobs in the company. Many of the job postings are fake. In fact, the jobs posted have most likely been spoken for. Managers have their favorite employees and arrange to have them promoted, even if they are unqualified for the position.
My department was completely mismanaged. The manager took a back seat and allowed employees with little to no experience take the reins for the direction of the department. The department has been headed in the wrong direction for a long time.
Employees are scared to speak up for fear of losing their jobs. Those that do speak up are either ignored or treated disrespectfully.
Farmers has the ability to get back on track and hire intelligent and forward thinking managers.
