    I have been working at State Farm

    Pros

    Good benefits, good work-life balance, good colleagues

    Cons

    Recruiter promised help with finding my husband work. I didn't expect them to find him a job, but literally all they did was to suggest that he go to the website and apply there. No help with forging connections or finding a match. My spouse is highly qualified but not in my department, so I've been unable to help him make connections.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bloomington, IL. is a small city with few job opportunities outside State Farm. If you want to keep your employees, actively help their family members find work. Odds are I will be seeking a tech job on the West Coast so that both I and my spouse can have good jobs and live in the same city. If you would have helped him, I'd be content to stay in Bloomington. You probably lose a lot of good employees because their spouses can't find decent jobs in Bloomington, even if they're qualified for a job at your company.

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

    Pros

    Excellent training, (Depending on the agent you work for - Mine was very good)
    If you're a people person (which I am), you get to help people out and make a difference in their future and security.
    For the most part, every one of our customers who have relationships with our agency are extremely happy and refer friends & family. That being said, you have show that you care and give a damn about people, not just the commissions!

    Cons

    Their software (DOS based) takes a lot of getting used to and for me that was the most frustrating part of my job. They do have modules that you have to go through in their training sessions but I think that that needs to be more personalized or hands on with instructors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update the pain-in-the-backside "Necho" system and it would be so much more easy and enjoyable to continue to work there.
