Current Employee - Systems Analyst  in  Bloomington, IL
Current Employee - Systems Analyst in Bloomington, IL

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

Pros

Doing nothing and still getting paid. Benefits really suck everyone seems to think that they are great but you really have to pay. The 401k match is ok but I have seen better from smaller organizations.

Cons

They value insurance education over everything and they hire you who you are instead of what you can do. Working in Bloomington it is really race based. Had a lot of encounters with race complaints. A lot of changes, many not for the better. Off shoring a lot of work. I am currently looking for another job. Have a few interviews lined up.

    I have been working at State Farm full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities within the organization

    Cons

    several levels of management and responsibility distribution dilute the decision making process, and make for poor understanding of roles and expertise that is allocated to a team or division. Often times when a problem is recognized, the answer is to throw EVEN MORE people at it, further exacerbating the largest problem facing the organization... it's bulk and inability to move at a pace conducive to changing with consumer expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more advice and direction from your experts at the analyst level, include them in more disucssion so they're more aware of direction that you want to go. Managers, directors, etc... are always in meetings, and often at an analyst level, no one knows what's being discussed. Seems like some of that management could be reduced, and you could rely more on the true experts, first line managers (sometimes) and their employees.
