I have been working at State Farm (more than 3 years)

Pros

State Farm is a fabulous company: they pay their claims, their prices are fair and relatively stable, and the support the regional office offers to it's agent's offices is superb.

Cons

Make sure the agent you are working for is a better manager than mine. Agents are independent business owners contracted by State Farm to sell only their products, so agents don't have a guidebook for how they are to treat/pay their employees.

    I worked at State Farm as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pros were that it was a stable job which kept me busy and engaged. People were wonderful to work with on all levels. I thoroughly enjoyed my position at State Farm.

    Cons

    There was no room for growth. Company is constantly making useless changes to the system and the way work is done. Once you have everything figured out they make changes. It makes job harder than it has to be. Also agent does minimal work but makes all the money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the people at the bottom better they are the backbone of the organization.

    I worked at State Farm full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty laid back work environment, potential for decent bonuses, and everyone needs insurance.

    Cons

    A lot of customer service, moreso than actual sales. A lot of sales leads end up to be dead ends, and cold calling can get a bit old with people.
