I worked at State Farm part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Friendly, conducive, and nurturing work environment. A great platform to build experience, skill-set, knowledge, develop meaningful connections with fellow employees, and impress decision makers. A great true stepping stone to move forward in your professional trajectory.

Cons

Slightly far from campus. Less team work and more individual work so you'll have to make an effort to get to know your colleagues. Interns are given the scope of their project at the beginning of the internship and their progress is monitored throughout the semester. It might be a bit difficult to balance work and school but work is flexible and interns manage their own schedule.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More monitoring of interns- biweekly reports of progress. More ice breaking activities between interns.

    I worked at State Farm full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits are costly, but good. The pay is horrible.

    Cons

    State Farm is opening up new "HUBS" too quickly and has no live training system in place. The training is disorganized and made up of Powerpoint presentations. Very little time is spent on the floor learning before you are actually expected to take live calls and state specific training was rushed and disorganize.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend money on the training program if you want attract and keep good people. People learn best by doing, not memorizing.
