Pros

Decent pay for the amount of work you have to do. Relatively low stress. Great work/life balance. There is a lot of opportunity to move to any department if you're willing to go through training. State Farm uses consultants that help get a lot of work done.

Cons

The corporate headquarters is in Bloomington, IL. When making a career path change within the company, the training provided to prepare you for a new job isn't always the best. The systems (computer/technical) department isn't full of the most competent minds. Part of the problem is that State Farm tries to be really accommodating for individuals seeking new career opportunities and it's common for non-technical people to move into technical jobs. Some technical jobs require a formal computer related education. Software development is not that exciting at State Farm, it's rather mundane.

Advice to Management

Don't purchase software that is meant to aid employees before talking to the employees who will be forced to use it.

    Pros

    - i was able to learn about many industries while working in the insurance industry - i met many people

    Cons

    -Agent was very lazy - Benefits were awful - having to cold call clients and having to sell them more insurance products did more harm than good.

    Advice to Management

    End cold calling because no one responds to it. it is outdated and annoying. this outdated practice wears on clients and employees alike.

    Pros

    Everyone seems to really love their jobs. They all come to work with a huge passion for their customers and each other. It's a really positive environment.

    Cons

    It's almost expected that you start working as a Claims Representative. Everyone says there's a lot of room for advancement if you're mobile... but sometimes you can't be mobile and I think you'd really miss out on opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing, it seems to be working. Remember to continue pushing forward on technology advancements. If SF lost their spot at #1 I think the main cause would be dinosaur technology.
