- Farmers District Office/Jessica Graves27.Dec 2015
A LOT of company politics ...
Support from management
Goals not clear or realistic
Freedom to work independently
Workload is unfairly distributed and unreasonable
You'll be left on your own to figure out what is expected of you
Attitude towards older colleagues
Not 'older worker' friendly at all
Overall compensation for your work
At this district office, pay is exceptionally low for the experience provided. The 'trend' is to hire inexperienced workers for low wages. Positions at the district level require experience to keep things productive and running smoothly.
Office / Work Environment
Employees are forbidden to adjust the temperature, it took 2 months of 'reminding' to finally get the software that was needed to complete required reports, which put the reports behind 2+ months and which I was blamed for...
Regular work hrs - families are not generally taken into consideration, vacation days need to ne scheduled well in advance. Be prepared to take your work home
strong possibility of losing your job when a new dm takes over
What I like about the company
I enjoyed working for Farmers Insurance in general - I've worked for several Farmers agents as well as one other District Manager and had good experiences with them
What I dislike about the company
I had very little guidance or clear instruction, just strict/unrealistic deadlines.
I had never experienced such lack of actual leadership
The following benefits were offered to me
