    Pros

    Casual dress; management is supportive of work/life balance; salaries are competitive for the workload; good people; Willing to re-train you to other positions; flexibility to move around the company. Great place to retire; pension is nice.

    Cons

    Innovation can get squashed unless you are in the 'inner circle'. If you play golf and like to talk sports all day; you'll do great. IT management can lack understanding of the technologies they are managing; hard to motivate employees who have an 'entitlement' mentality; harmony over results; small town big company results in many people being connected outside of work; Have to be careful about what you say and what you do out in public.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the technologies you are managing; Understand that to get work done, you need to push people beyond their comfort zones; Don't squash creativity.

    Pros

    State Farm is great because its the leader in auto and home in the Nation. State Farm has great name recognition and really works hard to train its staff with almost no capital invested (as team member not agent)

    Cons

    If its hard for you to stay motivated in a very competitive field that this job will be hard for you. As a team member you're at the mercy of your agent. You have to make sure you and the agent you decide to work match in personality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to have better ways of attracting highly successful team members and helping them grow financially so they can in turn open a top producing agency.
