    Pros

    State Farm certainly knows how to take care of their people. Competitive compensation and the feeling of family are two reasons I love working here.

    Due to a company restructure, promotional opportunities are nil.

    Pros

    State Farm is an awesome company, benefits are great. They offer Paid Vacation time from the beginning. It's a sustainable workload. The company is very stable over all and it shows.

    Cons

    The benefits are given but unfortunately, its hard to use those days. At the managers' discretion, days count against you even if you went to the dr. They don't require drs notes. I would prefer requiring doctors note to filter out employees who just take advantage of the days.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so uptight, have fun at work. Be friendly. Help more associates promote out. Increase the raises because the pay is not enough to live.

    Pros

    Positive environment with supervisors who acknowledge hard work. Fun and rewarding incentives as well as lots of continuing education.

    Cons

    Occasional lack of support, job duties which expand far beyond job description, stress of creating income largely based upon commission. Choice of whether or not benefits are offered are based upon the Agent's decision.

    Advice to Management

    Availability of benefits to team members and a base salary requirement would be beneficial to all team members and agent representatives.
