    I have been working at State Farm

    Pros

    Working in an agents office prepares you well to become an agent if that's your goal, I can't imagine becoming an agent without having spent some time as a staff member and in my situation worked my way up to the office manager, there is alot to learn and took me a year before I felt comfortable with the products. You definitely stay busy and there are always opportunities to advance your education, Life and Health License, Property and Casualty License, Finra Securities license, if you want to sell mutual funds. If your goal is to be an agent you will have to pass many tests but its worth it . I have a Masters degree in Business so I'm hoping that will also help when I go in front of the board to become an agent. You have to be able to multi task and have the ability to put people at ease when they are upset, Good customer service is everything in this line of business

    Cons

    Can be stressful from the sales end meeting expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have we thought about marketing to Nascar fans? Sponsor a car? Need to market more to the youth population and make the internet quoting process more user friendly

    I worked at State Farm

    Pros

    If upper management likes you, you'll be put on committees and your face will be out there & more opportunities will come.

    Cons

    People at State Farm don't retire so there isn't a lot of room for advacement. You also have to be mobile to get promoted usually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote those that work hard and you'll keep your best workers!
