Former Employee - Customer Service - 4-40 CPSR License; Bank Certification in Saint Petersburg, FL

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

Pros

State Farm has excellent financial products available exclusively to employees, and offers employee discounts for lines of business, and other services. Extensive and thorough training is available online, at scheduled regional meetings, and hands on training at Agents' Offices.

Cons

Each State Farm Office is individually owned and operated. Therefore Agents maintain full discretion of salary, commission, bonuses, benefits, opportunities, and assigned duties. Ask for specifics to prevent any misunderstandings. Some Agents will also pay Licensing and/or CE requirements.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fully disclose pay structure, and expectations. Develop team and individual goals for success.

    I have been working at State Farm full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Instant credibility with the name brand of State Farm. Loyal, long time policyholders. Highly educated and competent partners in underwriting, claims, and support units. Great products. Easy to sell the value of a great company. Great vision and communication from upper management.

    Cons

    Highly intense service work distracts from the sales portion of the job. Awkward systems. Many different systems to accomplish simple transactions. Lower commissions than competitors but easier to attract clients so maybe this is a wash.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving forward with the technology.
