    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just stop being so arrogant and use some advice from your veterans instead of all your advice from the "college grads.".

    I worked at State Farm full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great company, benefits and over all great people!

    Cons

    Way over managed, underpaid for what is expected from ILR Associates. Lots of room for advancement but EVERYONE in this position wants out so it is hard to move up! Work-life balance is good and time off allotted to new employees is the best going!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no need for team leads other than during the 1st 2-3 weeks out on the floor and just a more experienced associate is just as helpful. There are just too many Managers period!! More pay and some sort of performance incentive needs to be in place on more than an annual or semi-annual basis!
