    I like it

    Intern (Current Employee) Champaign, IL

    ProsGreat opportunity.
    Research Leads are helping and care about you and you're project.
    Free coffee and snacks
    Laid back environment

    ConsSometimes, you run out of things to do. This is due to the fact that sometimes management overestimates the difficulty/time demand of your project.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave the analysts consult with the interns more. Other than that, I don't really have any advice. Keep doing what you do.

    State Farm Research Center is a great place to intern.

    Strategic Resources Intern (Current Employee) Champaign, IL

    ProsGreat team work ability. The management is very helpful. Variety of projects to pick from. Even as an intern, you get great opportunities to learn as much as you can about various insurance products. Definitely a stable company to work for in the insurance industry. The research center always has the companies most cutting edge technology. Every intern just received brand new large computer monitors. There are over three large lcd screens all with video conferencing capabilities allowing interns to network and conference between the research center, headquarters (bloomington, IL), and with field agents if necessary.

    ConsInsurance can sometimes be a somewhat drab industry. Not the most exciting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat job trusting young employees with large amounts of responsibility and providing them with the right support.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
