    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.

    I have been working at State Farm

    Pros

    Good name recognition and a wide variety of insurance products to offer.

    Cons

    Unless you are an agent or in regional management, there is no chance for advancement. Team members are told we are extremely valuable to the company but there are no benefits and extremely low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Examine pricing and make products more competitive.
