Internship Review

Clerical Intern (Former Employee)
Huntington Beach, CA (US)

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

ProsFriendly people, very nice place to work at. The agents there were all kind to me, and answered my questions whenever I had one about their job.

ConsEnded up doing menial tasks for most of the time, though this was more on my fault anyone else's. Could've taken initiative more to take on more and more difficult tasks.

Advice to Senior ManagementReally work with interns more and try to challenge them. If they don't meet your expectations, then give them something easier, but most interns should have strong abilities to achieve more than what you originally thing.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Cushy place w/good work/life balance but slow advancements

Intern (Former Employee)
Bloomington, IL (US)

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

ProsState Farm has a great work/life balance - from workplace events to the State Farm Park, etc. etc.
Benefits and compensation are good, and there is a good corporate culture of valuing loyalty to the company.

ConsIf you're like me and like to be challenged and thrilled each day at work, this is not the place. Things move slowly.

Advice to Senior ManagementInterns want to learn so use them! But don't just stick them w/paper pushing - that'll turn off your brilliant potentials because they'll want to seek out more exciting opportunities.
