    Former Employee - Claims Representative  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Claims Representative in New York, NY

    I worked at State Farm full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Learning how business works, i.e. the engineering of an individuals productivity, from the bottom. Taylorism, as it is known in the MBA textbooks.

    Cons

    Tethered to a desk. Unhealthy to be sedentary in prime of your life. If you are not at your desk, you are not working. Phone headset, incessant ringing of phone and complaint calls most of the day. Arguing about car value and minutia of claims process over and over again. Manager reviews- either you are too slow and super thorough, or you need to speed up to make your "numbers" look good. Numbers are phone calls, initial settlements, follow ups, all tedious crap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up. The nature of the cubicle environment will weed out the people that are motivated to do bigger things and advance their career, while retaining those that could care less (or are beaten for whatever reason).
