    Pros

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

    Cons

    Sometimes, 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I felt that the feedback management provided to the interns was valuable and should assist in my future career as an actuary.

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job trusting young employees with large amounts of responsibility and providing them with the right support.

    I worked at State Farm

    Pros

    My perspective is a little different since I interned with State Farm. I thought the internship was great. I got paid well and the hours were very flexible. There were also many extracurricular activities for employees that I participated in. I was on an Ultimate Frisbee team and I had a paid trip to Six Flags with the rest of the interns. The intern housing was also a good experience.

    Cons

    The feedback from management was a little questionable. Sometimes it felt like I was unimportant, even though I knew I was. I did get to meet many members of upper management, which was a unique experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure interns are fully involved, not just with work but also with team and mentor meetings.

    I worked at State Farm as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I truly enjoyed my summer internship at State Farm where I was able to grow and contribute my skills in a professional setting.The experience offered personal growth and a solid work-life balance. I was able to ask questions and learn something new each day.

    Cons

    Overall I enjoyed my experience at State Farm. Despite my positive experience, I did not gain full exposure to the more than one many facets of business they operate in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I generally agree with the management strategy implemented at State Farm Insurance but I would suggest a more organized internship program with specifically detailed responsibilities and learning practices for entry level workers.
