    A fine place to work, but claims is difficult.

    Pros

    State Farm has excellent policies when it comes to sick/personal leave, development, and communication with management.
    If you need a day off, and it is very common that you need some time to de-stress in claims, the option is readily available.
    The company provides a pension for employees who work 5 years or more at the company.
    Provides lots of training and development.
    Claims has a multitude of shifts avalable starting between 7:00 AM to 10:45 AM, with 7 hour 45 minute shifts.

    Cons

    Claims is rough. Every call you take is someone on one of the worst days of their life. It can be very easy to get burnt out.
    It can be very difficult to get recognized for a job well done, you have to be lucky enough to have a manager listening in on a 'remarkable' call to be acknowledged.
    By the same token, if you make a mistake, it will come back to bite you, whether a manager hears you or not. The customer will complain, or more commonly, a co-worker will forward your mistake to your manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We understand that managing the company as a whole, you are doing an excellent job to keep us the #1 insurance company. However, claims is the face of your orginazation, which ultimately decides the success of the company. Better compensation for your claims processors and reps would go a long way towards us leaving to do the same job at Geico or Progressive for more pay.
