Pros

Competitive Pay, Incentives, Advancement Opportunities, Diversity - For me, I have an educational background in HR, and I know that with the Atlanta divisions growing tremendously, there will be tons of opportunity for me to kick-start my career in HR with State Farm, after having fulfilled state licensing (P&C), and the minimum 1 year work requirement in my current position before seeking advancement. I'm super excited!

Cons

I'm more of a glass half full kind of gal! - Look at the bright side ...better to be employed than unemployed! Sure, varying shifts and hours may occur, which may create an imbalance in your personal life but it'll all be worth it when you want to get into a new position. You've got to crawl before you walk!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Looking forward to meeting my new management and team Feb. 17, 2014 for training! 12 weeks at that! If management is anything like the HR Recruiter who interviewed me, I can expect 100% professionalism, very knowledgeable and patient with questions and concerns!

    Pros

    Good Pay, Low key environemnt

    Cons

    Externals seen as disposable and treated as 2nd class citizens. It deptartment change process has philosophy that process is more important than outcome, thus costing State Farm millions in added costs every year. More interested in being warm and fuzzy than results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to externals. They have the experience outside State Farm that can enhance IT systems and processes. It will prevent waste and bloated counterproductive processes and procedures.

    State Farm has a lot of room for growth on the corporate side, but not as a licensed agent.
