    Pros

    Training was the best training I've had in preparation for a job, time off policies are extremely flexible when available, work environment is very positive and supportive.

    Cons

    Parking can be a beat in its own to tackle, work schedules are not very flexible, other than that - no real complaints.

    I have been working at State Farm full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Freedom and flexabliity are a good benifit. Helping people and making sure that they are prepaired for the unexpected is a rewarding feild.

    Cons

    Most consumers have to be educated on products and insurance coverages. Some customers have to be informed more than once in more than one way. This job can be redundant and is only a good fit for those that can repeat the same task in a mannor that does not seem redundant.

    I have been working at State Farm

    Pros

    Good benefits, good work-life balance, good colleagues

    Cons

    Recruiter promised help with finding my husband work. I didn't expect them to find him a job, but literally all they did was to suggest that he go to the website and apply there. No help with forging connections or finding a match. My spouse is highly qualified but not in my department, so I've been unable to help him make connections.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bloomington, IL. is a small city with few job opportunities outside State Farm. If you want to keep your employees, actively help their family members find work. Odds are I will be seeking a tech job on the West Coast so that both I and my spouse can have good jobs and live in the same city. If you would have helped him, I'd be content to stay in Bloomington. You probably lose a lot of good employees because their spouses can't find decent jobs in Bloomington, even if they're qualified for a job at your company.
