    I have been working at State Farm as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It varies, but I interns are overall pretty free to develop as they see fit.
    Flexible hours.
    A few fun activities throughout the semester.

    Cons

    Progress can be slow and people in the company often don't email back if you have questions.
    Lots of paperwork to do simple things.
    Lots of restrictions on what we're allowed to do, such as download software on the provided machines.
    Not a ton of feedback, as projects leads often don't have a programing background and you may only be around fellow interns who know as much as you.

    I have been working at State Farm as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get to work with a bunch of interns that are your age and get pretty interesting work compared to a lot of "intern work" at big companies

    Cons

    The people are very friendly but seem to be very settled in their careers and lack motivation to do more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep professionals motivated by encouraging growth. Employees should want to find new opportunities and not just settle in where they are. Great family culture, but lack of fit when you have a very professional mindset.

    I have been working at State Farm as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    They were really flexible with my the days and hours I could work and the people were very nice.

    Cons

    The people were great but the internship was lacking. When I was told about the position I was under the impression that there would be selling involved with the internship and "real world" experience. I did not do anything except set up appointments and sit in the back of the office doing nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a real internship and give the intern more to do than just making appointments….
