    I have been working at State Farm as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    State Farm treats their workers very well. The agent I worked for was very demanding but still very understanding. The office operated very well and everyone got along.

    Cons

    As with all insurance, there are many unsatisfied customers that are angry when they call.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give each agency more freedom rather than strict corporate rules.

    I have been working at State Farm as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Other employees worked with were great and very helpful. Treated like a normal employee. Given very realistic preview of the normal office routine. Great support.

    Cons

    Not many. Kind of slow at times but that is to be expected. If your interested in a summer internship program, State Farm is a great place to look.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the program to keep younger employees with a lot of talent looking at the company for a career.
