    Pros

    This company cares about its people a lot. They offer lots of opportunity to develop yourself and advance within the company. In addition, if you get tired of your specific job, they make it easy to move around within the company. When you work at the Corporate location, there are many different departments to work in.

    With incredibly affordable health insurance, vision, dental, life, AD&D, long term care insurance, a pension, a 401(k), and a respectable amount of paid time off, the benefits at this company are excellent. Furth more, the company essentially gives you $1,200 a year into your 401(k), in addition to offering tuition reimbursement and paying for any and all insurance designations you might want to pursue. This company cares about their employees and wants them to succeed both personally and professionally. With flexible work schedules and generous paid time off for sickness, dentist, and doctor visits, State Farm seeks to make sure you have a happy work-life balance.

    Cons

    The cons are no different than any other large corporation. Rows of cubicles, office politics and bureaucracy is not for everyone. In order to succeed, you need to be willing to “play the game” to some extent. But that is no different than any other corporation. For a fortune 50 company, the pros outweigh the cons by a significant margin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider moving towards offering more non-salary benefits. For example, follow Google's example and provide free lunch, snacks, or on-site gyms to your employees. These types of benefits go a long way to increasing your overall employee satisfaction and reducing turnover.
