    Pros

    Decent money and it was a good place to work until what you read below

    Cons

    Went from family being #1 to making money is more important. Leaders stressed and people treated like factory workers.

    Pros

    They are very flexible when it comes to taking off, going to your children's school functions, etc. You take care of their customers and do a good job, and they'll take care of you. The pay is good for this area.

    Cons

    No structure. Employees constantly calling in, and leaving their messes for the more dependable, organized employees to deal with. Bosses choose to ignore the many issues in the office, instead of correcting the problems. Very frustrating to watch day after day. Comission pay is directly affected by this.

    Advice to Management

    Either clean up the office, or close it. All the many issues in the office are causing productivity to take a serious decline.

    I worked at State Farm

    Pros

    Good financial compensation, base salary plus commission

    Cons

    it's a business transaction between the boss and employee rather than a professional relationship. you'll be fine as long as you are making the expected numbers

    Pros

    State Farm's clients are loyal, and usually pleasant. There is a lot of training, and the other employees are helpful. Although not actually employed by "State Farm," there are some benefits offered by the agent.

    Cons

    Very hectic environment. Not enough employees to take care of both, sales and service. Each agent has their own house rules and benefits.

    Pros

    Reasonable schedule, reasonable workload. Reputable company that by and large takes care of its policyholders.

    Cons

    At the agency level, absolutely zero benefits. Minimal room for growth (unless you want to become an agent, and the 05 contract is terrible).

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for management.

    Pros

    Nice people, easy going atmosphere, project based work. Work is pretty interesting, and if you don't like your project you can always work on other stuff

    Cons

    Nothing cutting edge, you are going to be implementing 2-5 year old technology. State Farm seems to always be playing catch up

    Advice to Management

    it would be cool if there was more motivation to actually do work. it seems that a lot of the time is spent waiting for things to get processed, and trying to download software from oleks
