Property & Casualty Agent

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at State Farm full-time for more than 3 years

ProsEven 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.

ConsSome 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 Senior ManagementIt'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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
