I worked at State Farm as an intern (less than an 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.

    Pros

    State Farm is a fabulous company: they pay their claims, their prices are fair and relatively stable, and the support the regional office offers to it's agent's offices is superb.

    Cons

    Make sure the agent you are working for is a better manager than mine. Agents are independent business owners contracted by State Farm to sell only their products, so agents don't have a guidebook for how they are to treat/pay their employees.

    I worked at State Farm as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pros were that it was a stable job which kept me busy and engaged. People were wonderful to work with on all levels. I thoroughly enjoyed my position at State Farm.

    Cons

    There was no room for growth. Company is constantly making useless changes to the system and the way work is done. Once you have everything figured out they make changes. It makes job harder than it has to be. Also agent does minimal work but makes all the money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the people at the bottom better they are the backbone of the organization.
