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

Pros

Job security is not an issue
Competitive salary
Part time jobs offer flexible schedules for students or those with a second job

Cons

"Getting your foot in the door" is not necessarily going to give you the opportunity to advance
Internal job postings are completely worthless
Big company and easy to get lost in the crowd
Tuition reimbursement program is poor

Advice to Management

Ask the people who actually do the job for feedback before you change something. Too often upper management throws a curve ball which makes the job more difficult and makes the issue more difficult for the customer.

    I worked at State Farm full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to move within organization
    Big push for people to become salespeople
    Good benefits
    Financially strong company

    Cons

    Started as a family-oriented company with a nurturing environment. One of core values to 'develop people,' which is really just lip service. When it comes time to help people grow and develop, people will always fall below the No. 1 State Farm priority of making a profit. They are trying to reinvent themselves to be more like Progressive, and are losing their core values in the process. It's become a dog-eat-dog, giant corporation. People are clamoring for survival, chewing each other up just to hang onto their own rung. Ethics and integrity have been thrown out the window.
