    Pros

    Great Resources, Good Products, Good Opportunites

    Cons

    Poor closing rates and retention rates, Farmers is very picky about the risks that it will accept and most people don't qualify for the competitive rates.

    Advice to Management

    An apprentice program would probably be the best way to groom potential agency owners.

    I worked at a Farmers agency in the Santa Cruz/Aptos area. My supervisor was awesome, a very friendly guy who cared both about his coworkers and clients. His attitude made me actually like working for him.

    Nothing really, the office I worked at had great people, but I'm sure that varies by location.
