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

    Pros

    Great team environment. Good learning opportunities. Room to move up. Once in, plenty of different positions available. Good incentives. Good time off and vacation package (if not abused)

    Cons

    Claims are hectic. Stress levels are moderate to elevated. If you understand the nature of the beast, you will be fine. If not, you will suffocate. Not all schedules are flexible. Starting pay is low, but be good at what you do and that will change. Remember, mutual company, not shareholder driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your associates. But don't immerse yourself in their lives. You are the supervisor. Be firm.

    Former Employee - Fire Claim Representative in Charlottesville, VA

    I worked at State Farm (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and social atmosphere, good benefits, lots of opportunity. The corporate culture is friendly there are lots of celebrations an fun activities. Training is fun and special projects are rewarding.

    Cons

    The company is going through transition and streamlining their office locations which makes company policies fluctuate greatly. One day things are one way and the following day there are completely different practices and procedures. Terrible parking, management practices favoritism. Not a lot of work life balance in practice. There are many micro managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on skills and abilities not ken and barbie look a likes and favoritism. Many people are promoted and given opportunities without merit.
