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.

Great Program. Learned a lot about the industry.

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.

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

Best Internship Opportunity our there!

Summer Intern (Former Employee)
Bloomington, IL (US)

I worked at State Farm

ProsThe internship is a great opportunity to travel (if you're not from Bloomington), meet a TON of other students like you, and really get your foot in the door.
Almost everyone knows about State Farm, so adding it to your resume will make you have pride in where you've worked. The internship is great experience in any field, because there are so many departments within the company.

ConsYou have to be ready for the corporate-culture. The internship always starts off really slow (as does any internship) and then once you get into the swing of things, you will be working a full-time job. Once you have enough work to accomplish, the time will go by very quickly.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
