Former Intern - Marketing Intern in San Jose, CA

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

Pros

The internship program in 2009 for college undergraduates was an amazing learning experience, I was a marketing intern in the SF Bay Area. They paid for our company cards, travel to the internship competition and opportunity to present for corporate. Great experience learning about marketing strategy and how interact with executives! Heavy recruiting for entry-level positions.

Cons

Entry-level positions were only in claims roles that were not well paid or suited to any other interests.

    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.
