Pros

Helping customers navigate unexpected day to day problems, developing relationships with customers, relatively easy work.

Cons

Regional management has its head up its ass, management at an agency level is run like a frat house. Always aware that your employment is based on the mood of the agent.

Advice to Management

Modify new agent contract so as to not encourage blatant frat boy behavior in local agents (adjust SMCV, etc).

    I worked at State Farm as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    State Farm has a great work/life balance - from workplace events to the State Farm Park, etc. etc.
    Benefits and compensation are good, and there is a good corporate culture of valuing loyalty to the company.

    Cons

    If you're like me and like to be challenged and thrilled each day at work, this is not the place. Things move slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Interns want to learn so use them! But don't just stick them w/paper pushing - that'll turn off your brilliant potentials because they'll want to seek out more exciting opportunities.

    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.
