    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Flexible to work from home.

    Cons

    HR is on the managers side and not employees. Directors want favors to give out leads. Directors are not accountable. No chance to move in the company unless you have the right friends. No work- life balance. If you are on salary they want you to work 24-7.

    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company has a very progressive mission statement. They company offers great medical, dental and vision benefits. There are some lovely people working as Claims and Customer Service representatives. You get access to Farmers Federal Credit Union which offers amazing benefits.

    Cons

    The company is more focused on it's bottom line rather than paying out their claims. The salaries offered are not competitive. The companies emphasis on diversity is a great public relations ploy but is not practiced in their day to day operations. The company actively promotes work/life balance in theory but then assigns caseloads that make it impossible to work just 40 hrs a week and stay current. The company has departments that actively perpetrate discriminatory practices and takes disciplinary actions based upon stereo types and racial profiling. I personally experienced discrimination and witnessed ageism within the department in which I worked.

    Pros

    -Great work life balance with flexible schedules, wfh opportunities, and managers and colleagues who are understanding of the existence of life outside the office -AMAZING 401k. Best I've seen anywhere! -On site cafe with subsidized meals / affordable and diverse food and drink options -Fully paid company phone -Company credit card for related expenses -Nicest coworkers EVER! Welcoming and inviting from Day 1 -No "expectation" of or pressure to work late, after hours, on weekends, etc. -Awesome internal movement opportunities mean you can switch teams, positions, even hub locations with ease and without judgement or ill will. Exploring your career path opportunities is encouraged!

    Cons

    -Slightly outdated tech (laptops, programs/systems) that sometimes makes doing your job more challenging (but they do have a great help service desk!) -Sometimes a slow or disorganized onboarding process, depends hire to hire (badges not working, laptops not being set up in time, etc)

    The traffic around the OKC office can be quite congested between 7:30 and 8:30 in the morning a and again from 5:00 to 5:30 in n the afternoon due the works schedules of a large company whose headquarters located across the street from the office. (OKC)
