    I have been working at State Farm (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This has been a great place to grow and learn about the world of insurance. Good boss, great team, and easy environment to work in. Great sales training and I've learned a lot about customer service. As a whole, State Farm is definitely on the up-swing. They have been doing very well lately, but it will be interesting to see what happens to them in the next decade with self-driving cars.

    Cons

    The salary sucks. With a college degree, there are a whole lot better jobs that you can go into. Unless your want to be an agent one day, there isn't much use sticking around for very long. After the internship they require you to move so there is no ability to stay in your same town. Now, I live in a small town so this may be different in bigger cities.

    I have been working at State Farm as an intern (Less than a 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.
