    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been at Farmers for more than a decade. The changes inside the company during that time have been astounding . I really feel our leadership understands what they need to do to attract and keep talent in this rapidly changing marketplace. They've relaxed the dress code, improved technology, reworked benefits and really focused on diversity and inclusion efforts at all levels of the company. I've never really felt the desire to leave (which I had at both previous employers). Things I like:
    - I'm extremely challenged in my role.
    - I feel my talents are being used to the fullest extent.
    - I feel valued.
    - I got a lot of time off (I actually struggle to use the 30 days I receive each year).
    - I get to work at home a lot.
    - I'm given a lot of autonomy in my role.
    - I'm given opportunity.
    - I get to support my community and my favorite charities on behalf of Farmers.
    - I feel fairly compensated.

    Cons

    - Work/life balance can be a little off. Sometimes I ask, "what balance?"
    - Benefits are decent. Probably could be better. My litmus test is that I perceive my husband's employer-provided benefits better than what I receive.
    - Offices outside of Home Office (Los Angeles) have less opportunity than Home Office, especially in my business unit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to transform the company for the better.

    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None I can't think of anything at all this has been a completely negative experience. Commercials are clever but how about trying to advertise people buying insurance and not just going for laughs about claims you cover.

    Cons

    Once again corporate increases rates and cut commissions, over the last year Farmers has increased auto rates twice, cut commissions by 10%, increased home insurance rates and cut commissions buy 10%. If you are looking at opening a agency and you are thinking about Farmers run in the other direction. Corporate raises rates and wonders why sales go down, it's not the agents fault corporate can not turn a profit on P&C!

    Advice to Management

    Instead of sticking it to the agents in order to try to become profitable try freezing executives salaries and canceling bonuses.

    Pros

    You get what you put into it. If you are positive, motivated and hard working you can move up easily in the company. Amazing 401k match! Love that they now allow you to move up without a degree if you are a hard worker.

    Cons

    Medical benefits are very expensive.
