    I have been working at State Farm part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Training and support is great. The agent I worked for was very flexible with my schedule. Additionally, I was paid for the time I spent obtaining my P&C license.

    Cons

    State Farm is very conservative and underwriting can be difficult to deal with sometimes.

    I have been working at State Farm full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company has great reputation and (mostly) good people.

    Cons

    Not proactive enough, slow to change due to embedded policies and procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to focus equally on customers and employees.

    Pros

    Loved the atmosphere, great people, love the systems. Took really great care of customers. People love their jobs. Great boss

    Cons

    Sometimes stressful. I felt that I was judged too quickly. I wanted a more full time position. I was told sales was not for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please give everyone a chance at all positions before asuming they would not be cut out for something with out giving it a try.

    Pros

    Opportunity is there. Started out good

    Cons

    Opportunity only for a select few. Younger managers have egos. Health benefits are high. You have to be quiet like u are in grade school. No discounts on policies for employees. Very metrics oriented.
