    "Changing for the better"

    I worked at State Farm full-time

    Pros

    Recent changes in the company have a positive outlook. Becoming more competitive, asking IT analysts to do a little more. Starting to eliminate virtual days for some which are a joke. Pay, benefits, job security, and less formal work environment a plus.

    Cons

    Still a major problem with employee accountability. High manager turnover yeilds a clean slate for both productive and poor/complacent employees on a regular basis. Most managers not familiar with the work. No appreciation or reward for IT certifications.

    Advice to Management

    Please realize the value in keeping managers committed to their teams for a length of time. Otherwise they have no vested interest in growing the team and developing analysts.

    I have been working at State Farm full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are starting to become extremely forward thinking despite their typically risk averse nature. They also provide some decent benefits, like a pension plan and a employee park with free putt putt, water park, and a bunch more.

    Cons

    Lower end of the pay scale comparatively; as a working professional I make 1/2 what an intern does at Google or Microsoft. Too much politics involved in hiring, not enough skill review, and lots of "pass the trash". The managers who are innovative and don't seem to get a fare shake and are treated as if they don't understand or have their heads in the cloud.
