Pros

Hours can be flexible. Can have a really relaxing and personal work environment. The more sales you make the more money you make.

Really depends on who your boss is. Sales expectations are not reasonable sometimes and alot of time your benefiting the owner of the branch

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at State Farm

    Pros

    Benefits - good medical, vision, dental plans.
    The illusion of work/life balance.
    Depending on the area within the company, the pay is ok.

    Cons

    This is for the Systems internet side.

    Management - The internet philosophy is to not trust your lead software engineers.
                               They ave no software background and believe that they are the architects.
                               Meeting deadlines and delivering a half-baked product are common.
                               There has been a rise in firing employees to gain respect among their peers.

    This company is an insurance company and not a software company. New technologies are
    just thrown about and no control is used. Two products, essentially the same, will use few if any common components. No software process is encouraged and motivation, generally, includes being a stern talking (might include verbal abuse).

    If your physical workplace is not in Bloomington, expect to be left in the dark and blamed for program failures. Information hiding is a common place occurrence and is seen as a way to advance.

    Just try different browser on their site and see how many do not work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try producing quality products. Even the agents complain about the products.
    Promote the employees who produce and not your friends.

    Pros

    Great benefits package! vacation, medical,401k,etc.

    Cons

    Will lure you into working for a position you did not apply for and talk highly about how you can move to different departments if you dont like it, they never let you leave dept. you are in, and the supervisors are awful in certain departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
