Pros

Even though I worked for an agent and not directly for State Farm, the support is there and you can tell they care. I enjoyed most company functions and they people there.

Cons

Some of the expectations of a small, scratch agency can be a bit unrealistic. I don't think there is anything wrong with lofty goals but hitting a certain number of applications in one year for just one line of insurance shouldn't make or break your entire career.

Advice to Management

It's great to celebrate and reward the agents when things are going good - this is not an excuse to berate them or play mind games when numbers are down.

    Pros

    Long training process. Good benefits. Ample opportunities to take time off.

    Cons

    The long training process is lacking in actually preparing you to perform the job. Management is erratic with how they monitor and evaluate performance so there is no consistency of expectations.

    Good place to wait for retirement.

    Pros

    flexible working hours, nice and experienced people love to help, encourage employee to develop themselves, a lot of opportunities to conference and trainings, rare layoff.

    Cons

    Many people have been working at State Farm for over ten, twenty or thirty years. That means the promotions for fresh graduates are relatively slow compared to other companies. The salaries are not very competitive either.
