I have been working at State Farm full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Focus on people and their development. Lots of opportunities to move around internally. Promote from within culture. Mature IT architecture and understanding of importance to the organization.

Cons

IT organization is very large so its easy to get lost in the weeds. Also due to its size, lots of processes and internal governance structures which can impact solution delivery timelinies. IT focus on attaining Insurance designations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We are in a period of rapid change, continue to engage and communicate with employees to express the vision and whats coming next.

    Pros

    Pension plan and that is about it. I think you have to be there for at least 5 years to even get that.

    Cons

    Workforce Management (which means you have to ask permission to pee and they track your every second of your day), extremely low pay compared to other similar jobs, sick leave is given but if you take it you get "coached" and threatened with job loss

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better pay. Claims is a hard job, if you paid more maybe you would have a lower turn over rate. Also, workforce management is a joke. I understand you need to keep track of your employees but no one should have to explain when they need to use the bathroom. Also your training program needs to be looked at. No one should be released to the floor not knowing what they are doing and told that is normal.
