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

    Pros

    The company was great to work for. I enjoy my job and speaking with customers. The company did right by the customers.

    Cons

    Longevity isn't a sure thing as the industry is rapidly training. In certain departments you may hit a ceiling and unable to move forward as you would like or have expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are great people working withing the agencies that should be considered for positions outside the offices to expand opportunities.

    Difficult to move up in the company without moving around. Out of state opportunities are there but difficult to take advantage of if you have a family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop internally and continue to promote from within.

    Pros

    its a stable job or a perfect career you can fall back on. People will always need insurance, and you get to help them figure out what works best for them. If you enjoy learning, and helping people out (sometimes difficult) then i recommned getting your insurance licenses.

    Cons

    starting out can be tough, learning the systems, learning to sell the products.

    I have been working at State Farm

    Pros

    Projected growth is huge over the next year. Plenty of advancement and cross- department opportunities. A fun environment. Thorough training. Great culture. Competitive wages. Paid time off awarded to you at the start. Benefits available to all employees, even part-time. This includes an annual bonus.

    Cons

    A lot of positions start part-time, as little as 24 hours per week. If you can't deal with that, it may be tough on you to start. But there are multiple opportunities during the year to bid for other shifts.
