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

Pros

I have no idea if all branches function the same. This one had very flexible hours, and the pay wasn't anything to complain about. Pleasant co-workers.

Cons

Deceptive interviews. Took this over another internship, based off of the job description. They describe it as a 'marketing campaign internship', and will give you a few token projects .. but you basically spend 80% of your time cold-calling people. I found this task to be quite unpleasant, as most people don't appreciate being telemarketed to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put the sales aspect in the job description. I'm sure you can find people who will want this internship, and function better than those like me who are dissatisfied.
