I worked at State Farm as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

working hours revolved around my school time. Easy work. calm and tranquil environment. build a close relationship with workers. some events are fun. pay was a little above minimum but i was only a intern. great place to learn if interested in insurance

Cons

Telemarketing is a must. Boring at times. Individuals will be rude. with out licensing you really cant do much but transfer calls, file papers, and telemarketing. since each agent sets up pay and commission it is a bit troublesome to get the pay you want.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Really needs a better claims and faster response when calling headquarters. It always takes over an hour on wait time to fix problems and customers get upset.

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

    Pros

    Company was great at the start of the process provided high hopes and big dreams for an insurance professional.

    Cons

    Wife always working, hopes are constantly being dismantled and torn up by the new management structure. The constant carrot is travel, travel , travel, my wife wants to help, help, help people and is passionate about it. She hates carrots and is growing to dislike the constant controlling and dominating structure of the forceful management. She has been asking for help for years on deaf ears and suddenly management quotas must be in effect because they wont stop the onslaught of giveme, giveme, giveme. They are taking the love out of my lovie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back to the fundamentals of the company, people first, like a Great Neighbor.

    I worked at State Farm full-time

    Pros

    Salary and benefits can be good...all depends on the agent, each can run their office differently. If you run into technical issues or problems with underwriting, there is always help.

    Cons

    Lack of training, however, this depends on the individual agencies. Cold calling ALL the time. Start Farm likes to really push different products throughout the year...even if it doesn't benefit the individual agency you are working at. One example...they try to push auto sales but they greatly increased homeowners insurance and it's hard to sell auto without the 40% discount of the homeowners bundle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a more uniform training program for all agencies.
