    I worked at State Farm full-time

    Pros

    You knew what hours you would be working, coffee was always hot, most of the time you could find supplies. The only positive thing going for this place is that the customers were always upbeat and a joy to work with on their policies.

    Cons

    If you didn't produce sales, even in a down turned ecomony, you might want to start looking for work with another company or in another industry. Don't share ANYTHING you want to keep private, even when you think you know the person you are sharing it with "says" that it won't go any further. No place to advance if you are not kissing up to the boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to work with employees. Stop the threats of being fired is you don't produce. This is not the way to "encourage" your staff when the economy is hard hit. For someone who says they know how to coach, I find it hard to believe that you seem to think you know how to treat your employees. If you coached a team like you treated your employees, you wouldn't have a team to coach. And 3 days paid vacation after the first year is not a benefit. That's a joke that will gets no laughs.

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

    Pros

    State 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.

    Cons

    If 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 ManagementAdvice

    Interns 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.
