    Great Company to work for.

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) Dunwoody, GA

    ProsThis is a great company to work for. State Farm offers tuition reimbursement, profit sharing, 401K, medical and dental benefits and promotions within the company to full-time and part-time employees. This is a fast-paced environment with growth potential, spot awards and salary increases.

    ConsDue to work scheduling, If you are a part-time employee, working 24 hours a week, you may be scheduled to work five days a week to earn your part-time pay.

    Good company overall.

    Technical Analyst (Current Employee) Bloomington, IL

    ProsCutting edge technology, good management. Some old legacy systems like any big Co. Good opportunity to advance, not 100% discriminatory against white males like many large Co's. Fair and competent mgt. for the most part.

    ConsWell, it is headquartered in Bloomington, IL which could be a plus for some or not a plus for others. IL as a state is going bankrupt but SF is dealing with that (mostly by not increasing jobs in IL lol!).

    Advice to Senior ManagementMgt. seems to be doing a good job. Branching out to the hubs (ATL, TX, AZ) seems like a good idea.
