    Pros

    Provides a lot of training, super friendly staff, variety of projects to get different experiences

    Cons

    Can get boring since it is insurance, but the company cares a lot about developing you.

    Advice to Management

    It can get annoying being an intern at innovation ready and knowing that it would take a significant amount of time to get our idea through with the many barriers a company as large as State Farm has.

    Pros

    -Promote quality interactions with clients -Focus on strengthening company from within the agent's office -Good benefits

    Cons

    -Not enough underwriters/service workers in the Alabama/Georgia area -Poor communication within the company -The "agent centered" mindset is not up-to-date -Need to update customer service techniques (more stuff online)

    Advice to Management

    Help agents grow by allowing them to excel at what they do best in their market- selling Life Insurance isn't everything.

    Pros

    Gained experience and exposure to what the insurance business was all about. Had a great team and enjoyed going to work for the most part. Some good skills to add to your resume.

    Cons

    Team members aren't always perfect at agencies. Low pay as an intern. Felt somewhat dead end if you don't want to go the agent route or move to Bloomington.

    Advice to Management

    Pay team members more, other than that you do a fantastic job. I don't know a lot about the management culture at corporate.

    Pros

    Competitive intern salaries Flexible hours for RDC positions Focused on developing talent

    Cons

    Not hiring directly from RDC Lots of bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    The flexibility and focus on growth comes off as very supportive, and is a huge reason to stick around after graduation

    Pros

    Great people, products and values. Excellent hours and management takes care of their employees. Really feels like co-workers are a family.

    Cons

    Agent is rarely ever physically in the office, which can frustrate clients.

    Advice to Management

    Regulate agent hours and provide better training opportunities.

    Pros

    People are incredibly willing to help you and answer your questions. I was an intern there and was able to reach out to people from all over and from all levels of the company. They are willing to let you learn new things. I am an English major but was given the opportunity to make a web page for the internal site

    Cons

    My second summer interning at State Farm wasn't as great because I was not given meaningful projects to work on.
