What else should applicants know about us?

Every Person, Every Perspective, Every Day


Farmers® is transforming from a legacy leader in the insurance industry into an agile, bold "mover and shaker" that's setting a standard for itself and the industry. In order to achieve the breakthrough performance necessary to achieve this, we need a level of innovation and engagement that is only possible through inclusion.

Inclusion is the power of belonging. The foundation of our culture is inclusion – not only as Farmers being a place where generations of families have chosen to work, but also being an award-winning military-friendly place to work and our sponsorship of thriving employee resource groups, including the Women’s Inclusion Network, LGBT & Allies, Veterans & Advocates, Farmers Linguistic Assistance Group, Black Professional Alliance, Awareness Benefitting Leaders and Employees about Disabilities, FarmersFuture and FarmersFit.

Our culture supports employees in bringing their whole selves to work. We celebrate differences of thought, experience and identity that make us unique. As a result, we are able to better execute on our goals because our differences help us better attract and retain employees, connect with customers and increase our ability to innovate.

Awareness Benefitting Leaders and Employees about Disabilities (ABLED) aims to create awareness about special needs and disabilities, and plans to bring people together, provide information, share best practices and provide personal resources.

Black Professional Alliance (BPA) helps Farmers attract and retain talented and well-informed business professionals by fostering education, awareness  and leadership development of the Black/African American community and issues that cultivate a more inclusive product offering and customer experience.

Health and wellness is important at Farmers, and we know it means something a little different to each employee. It doesn't matter if you're starting the journey or already climbing mountains, FarmersFit provides resources to help you be smart about fitness, join challenges and expand your network, all while celebrating your fitness passions.   

Farmers Future is focused on creating opportunities that promote cross-generational awareness, increased collaboration, and leadership development at Farmers.

The Farmers Linguistics Advisory Group gives voice to the multicultural needs of Farmers customers for whom English is a second language.

LGBT & Allies focuses on increasing education and awareness so that everyone can bring their full selves to work.

Veterans & Advocates focuses on supporting our current veterans, as well as attracting more to Farmers by increasing awareness, understanding and respect for visible/invisible differences and supporting veterans through their transition to civilian/corporate life.


With a majority of American women making their families' insurance purchase decisions today, and with nearly 40 percent serving as their family's primary income earner, Farmers leadership recognized the clear need to focus on the critical role that women at Farmers play, both in leading our organization and in guiding the company’s communication and marketing efforts for this key market segment. That's the reasoning behind the establishment of the Women's Network, with over 1,600 members and 17 regional chapters across the country led by our top talent.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would give higher comissions to the agents

Suggestions for improvement

  • Health Insurance should be provided for all.

What I like about the company

The management on a local level is great. They are responsive and good natured. Working with a local Farmers agent or agency is an enjoyable experience. Many of the agency level positions have flexible hours. Insurance agency positions can be challenging.

What I dislike about the company

Health insurance is not provided to everyone. Upper Corporate management like most large companies is disconnected and does not truly understand the day to day operations of an agency.
