I worked at State Farm full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Helping customers navigate unexpected day to day problems, developing relationships with customers, relatively easy work.

Cons

Regional management has its head up its ass, management at an agency level is run like a frat house. Always aware that your employment is based on the mood of the agent.

Advice to Management

Modify new agent contract so as to not encourage blatant frat boy behavior in local agents (adjust SMCV, etc).

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

    Pros

    State Farm is a fabulous company: they pay their claims, their prices are fair and relatively stable, and the support the regional office offers to it's agent's offices is superb.

    Cons

    Make sure the agent you are working for is a better manager than mine. Agents are independent business owners contracted by State Farm to sell only their products, so agents don't have a guidebook for how they are to treat/pay their employees.
