Company Culture

Multi cultural- but biased at the same time

Support from management

None what so ever. Who ever is under the new manger must obey by her rules.

Teamwork

None! Everyone is out for their own - thanks to the new manager

Freedom to work independently

None... she hires from her own group of friends so that they can report back to her

Internal Communication

None. Manger has her favorites and will hire someone that knows nothing to train - on how to pick up a pencil.

Attitude towards older colleagues

She will turn her back on those that have been working in the department for many years. And just smile. Does not care of the experience one has.

Office / Work Environment

Stressful walking in to the department you can feel the tension.

Environmental Friendliness

None thanks to the new manager

Work-Life Balance

Once 5 o clock comes around...

Company Culture

Just another place to work. The talk is far better than the walk

Support from management

Non-existent. Management is always overriding UW decisions, and does not support the staff either internally in reviews and the like, or externally to customers.

Teamwork

Everyone actually on the floor does a good job to support each other and help out. Peer-to-peer, it's a great environment.

Freedom to work independently

Micromanagement has hit an all-time high, as they have introduced a new program called Enlighten to track every move like a manufacturing plant. It's widget counting, and their way or the highway.

Internal Communication

Communication is just a miss. You find out more information from agents than you do your own management. They act as though they don't trust their own employees.

Gender Equality

Heavy female management, workforce is more equal.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Dismissive.

Career Development

Many opportunities with tuition-assistance, CE courses, and learning you can take through the University of Farmers.

Overall compensation for your work

low pay, and despite being tasked with many sales and growth goals, there is no compensation for that.

Office / Work Environment

call-center set up. No privacy.

Work-Life Balance

Plenty of PTO, and as long as you stand up for yourself, there's a good balance. If you don't, you'll get railroaded with requests to work more hours from home.

Job Security

They just sold off their Independent Agency book, and with the constant changes in direction, feel very unsure about a stable future.

Challenging Work

The work is relatively mundane, the hard part is constantly justifying basic decisions to an unsupportive management, and the agents have horrible attitudes and are hard to work with as a professional.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Decide on a company direction and stick to it, trust the employees to do the job they were hired for, and support them when push comes to shove.

What I dislike about the company

It's one giant spoils system. Either you're well-liked and tow the line and you get promotions, above average ratings, and opportunities, or you're stuck for 20 years.
