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

I have been working at State Farm full-time (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.

    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.
