    Once enjoyable, now feels like I work on an assembly line.

    I have been working at State Farm

    Pros

    Average benefits
    Full company pension
    Nice co-workers
    Flexible work schedule

    Cons

    Heavy inventories
    Unreasonable service levels expected to be maintained
    Seniority means nothing when it comes to settlement authority; everyone is treated the same based on job title
    Low raises as part of your raise allotted as cash performance and the other factored into your salary therefore it will take 20+ years to reach your maximum salary for your job grade
    No room for advancement unless you are willing to leave your family behind and relocate with each promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not everyone aspires to live in Bloomington IL. Have you had to relocate your family? I know the Insurance industry is a competitive one, but treasure the employees that are in the trenches and value the input and their ideas. I think the company has too many levels of management and many of them are out of touch with what needs to be done. EMED/PIP is not the only area to focus on in the Northeast!

    I have been working at State Farm

    Pros

    Your co-workers are honest, genuine people who care about you and your family. Opportunities for those willing to put in the extra work. Good work-life balance in some areas, but getting harder to find.

    Cons

    Promotions are getting more political each year. Lots of hoops to jump through for promotions, but they don't apply to everyone. Promoting philosophy changes every few years from "broad expereience" to "depth of experience" then back again. Executive leadership is out of touch with markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire! Get some fresh blood in there with new ideas and who can trim the fat in leadership. And for goodness sake, hire someone that didn't go to Illinois State or Illinois Wesleyan.
