    Pros

    Great company to work for. Good business model and corporate support for the agent. Marketing techniques used within State Farm really help the agent in the long run.

    Cons

    Didn't get paid. Not any work to do in the office. Was forced to do an internship by my college so I was pretty bored and angry about the whole process. Didn't learn anything I already knew and was a waste of time. Cons as an agent would probably be all the downtime in the office all the employees have.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize your interns in a more efficient manner. Hell, I would've washed his car if I didn't have to sit in the terrible office and stare at a computer for 8 hours everyday.

    Pros

    Internship was a lot of fun and a great introduction to the company.

    Cons

    The internship does not correlate to a full-time position with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Too much focus on rigid hierarchy (should work claims/underwriting to get to agent, should be agent to get to AFO, should be at AFO before working in higher management)

    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.

    Some customers were gems and really made my day.

    The office culture was a bit unprofessional when customers weren't present and the agent can be a little crazy.

    Pros

    State Farm maintains a very innovative environment, providing interesting technical projects for IT/Systems interns. All the projects are important to the firm, so you are able to actually contribute with your creative thinking.

    Cons

    There are not many tech people in the firm, so when working on the tech project, you might not able to find a direct go-to person for questions. You have to figure out many of the problems on your own.
