    Pros

    My agent is flexible, kind, knowledgabe, pays above average commissions. State Farm is number one in auto, home, and life insurance in the US, and has the financial security to back out insured in the chance of a claim.

    Cons

    Dealing with internal waitlines on the phone can be difficult, especially when you finally get a representative only to be transferred again or receive the wrong information.

    Advice to Management

    Not much opinion on management above my agency, but they try to be helpful and push the agent for more sales- if you prosper, they benefit as well.
