    Pros

    The internship is a great opportunity to travel (if you're not from Bloomington), meet a TON of other students like you, and really get your foot in the door. Almost everyone knows about State Farm, so adding it to your resume will make you have pride in where you've worked. The internship is great experience in any field, because there are so many departments within the company.

    Cons

    You have to be ready for the corporate-culture. The internship always starts off really slow (as does any internship) and then once you get into the swing of things, you will be working a full-time job. Once you have enough work to accomplish, the time will go by very quickly.

    A great internship program and good overall experience Very laid back atmosphere Casual dress code Flexible work hours

    Cons

    INEFFICIENT and wasteful as a company (In how they use their resources) Boring Few short term opportunities, only employees who stay for 20+ years are really rewarded

    Advice to Management

    Start acting like a publicly traded company. Stop the waste and inefficiency.

    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

    Decent pay for the amount of work you have to do. Relatively low stress. Great work/life balance. There is a lot of opportunity to move to any department if you're willing to go through training. State Farm uses consultants that help get a lot of work done.

    Cons

    The corporate headquarters is in Bloomington, IL. When making a career path change within the company, the training provided to prepare you for a new job isn't always the best. The systems (computer/technical) department isn't full of the most competent minds. Part of the problem is that State Farm tries to be really accommodating for individuals seeking new career opportunities and it's common for non-technical people to move into technical jobs. Some technical jobs require a formal computer related education. Software development is not that exciting at State Farm, it's rather mundane.

    Advice to Management

    Don't purchase software that is meant to aid employees before talking to the employees who will be forced to use it.
