    I have been working at State Farm full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Your agent determines the office hours so more laid back
    Family own type working environment

    Cons

    Very sales and commission based. You will have to cold calling and billing issues are a frequent occurrence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you like sales and cold calling, this would be the perfect job for you.

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

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, job stability, virtual work schedules available, ability to work from home, can wear jeans to work, short commute to work

    Cons

    Lots of stress, lots of uncontrolled change, unrealistic dates, limited amount of movement within the company, too much process/overhead, bureaucracy/politics, too many middle managers, internal employees are basically coordinators while external staff perform all of the development work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It feels as though management no longer trusts its employees to do the right thing and to produce a quality product. Our current work environment is going downhill fast. Managers need to stop committing to unrealistic dates as this is driving high-performing employees into the ground and causing no work/life balance. A lot of good employees have already left, and I am sure many more will follow unless the work environment improves.
