Great People

Summer Intern (Former Employee)

I worked at State Farm as an intern for less than a year

ProsPeople are incredibly willing to help you and answer your questions. I was an intern there and was able to reach out to people from all over and from all levels of the company.

They are willing to let you learn new things. I am an English major but was given the opportunity to make a web page for the internal site

ConsMy second summer interning at State Farm wasn't as great because I was not given meaningful projects to work on.

Overall, it's been a great experience.

Marketing Intern (Current Employee)
Chambersburg, PA (US)

I have been working at State Farm as an intern for less than a year

ProsVery nice people, decent hours (9am to 4 or 5pm), I am able to work on what I want to work on throughout the day with the help of any of the office staff when I need them.

ConsLower hourly rate than what I would like, office staff is not getting commission for any of their sales, the agent gets all of it which I think is not very fair (but it does not really affect me, I just feel bad for the ladies putting in all the work)

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage agents to commission their staff.

State Farm RDC Rocked

Systems Intern (Current Employee)
Champaign, IL (US)

I have been working at State Farm part-time for less than a year

ProsGreat work environment and a lot of good friends. Pay was decent for no experience. They take care of you.

ConsNot much direction from the team. You are pretty much assigned a problem and they don't really mentor you through the process of writing production level code. A lot of the work doesn't actually see the light of day.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake your intern's work have an impact.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great Program. Learned a lot about the industry.

Intern (Current Employee)

I have been working at State Farm as an intern for less than a year

ProsOther employees worked with were great and very helpful. Treated like a normal employee. Given very realistic preview of the normal office routine. Great support.

ConsNot many. Kind of slow at times but that is to be expected. If your interested in a summer internship program, State Farm is a great place to look.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue the program to keep younger employees with a lot of talent looking at the company for a career.

Great Internship Program - Not so great entry-level

Marketing Intern (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA (US)

I worked at State Farm as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe internship program in 2009 for college undergraduates was an amazing learning experience, I was a marketing intern in the SF Bay Area. They paid for our company cards, travel to the internship competition and opportunity to present for corporate. Great experience learning about marketing strategy and how interact with executives! Heavy recruiting for entry-level positions.

ConsEntry-level positions were only in claims roles that were not well paid or suited to any other interests.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
