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 part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It is clear that State Farm makes a sincere effort to support and develop their employees and promote a good environment and a sense of community from office to office. Excellent Brand with agents who typically do a great job representing the good neighbor attitude. The company would do small retreats with the office staff to the local headquarters and provide lunch and activities and training

    Cons

    Office staff support positions can be tedious at times but the environment was always positive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at State Farm full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities abound for those willing to work outside the job description, have political finesse, are very sociable, and are bilingual. Having other family members working in the company is usually good. Perks are good.

    Cons

    Be ready to work in a highly stressful environment and to change operations at a moments notice., Agency partners are a mixed bag to work with; beware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your workers when they follow established guidelines and procedures. If your worker wants to pursue opportunities beyond their assigned duties, if you will not allow this or cannot accomadate the request; explain why.
