    Pros

    State Farm is a company that has great stability, great benefits, chance for upward mobility as they usually promote within the company.

    Cons

    State Farm really doesn't have many negative aspects. It's difficult to talk with customers about life insurance but that's really about it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency on how rates are set

    Pros

    Excellent benefits for time off and health insurance. Good people to work with in a culture that promotes a positive work environment and diversity. Initial training is very good to start off performing your job well.

    Cons

    A certain amount of mobility is almost necessary for promoting up the corporate ladder. Spending time at the corporate office in Bloomington, Illinois used to be important. Now there are opportunities in Atlanta, Dallas, Phoenix, and Tacomah.

    Pros

    integrity, training, the people, pay, benefits, growth potential

    Cons

    working weekends, office politics, especially with other departments where, it seems, individuals have their own agenda as the primary movtivation for making improvements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love the opportunities for personal development: job shadow, mock interviews, leading team meetings/huddles. Would be great if CCC service reps could be more directly involved with Analysts when making improvements. Keeping things as transparent as possible to all levels is a plus.

    Pros

    The benefits are nice. A lot of room for growth. Most of the people that are with State Farm stay there so you have a lot of 20+ year employees.

    Cons

    The company reorganized and my department in Jacksonville, FL was moved to another city. Got stuck in SFPP which I did not like. They, atleast, made sure we were all able to stay with State Farm with a job offer....even if it was a down grade.
