Pros

Great team work ability. The management is very helpful. Variety of projects to pick from. Even as an intern, you get great opportunities to learn as much as you can about various insurance products. Definitely a stable company to work for in the insurance industry. The research center always has the companies most cutting edge technology. Every intern just received brand new large computer monitors. There are over three large lcd screens all with video conferencing capabilities allowing interns to network and conference between the research center, headquarters (bloomington, IL), and with field agents if necessary.

Cons

Insurance can sometimes be a somewhat drab industry. Not the most exciting.

Advice to Management

Great job trusting young employees with large amounts of responsibility and providing them with the right support.

    Pros

    State Farm was a great place to work...I loved working with t the agents and policyholders to match policies to their needs. State Farm has instant credibility in the local community and "Like a Good Neighbor" really rings true with local policyholders. Great support from underwriters and team members from corporate is enjoyed.

    Cons

    The unwillingness of agents to pay staff in accordance to what they bring to the agency. Finding the right agent to work for means everything. State Farm being the mothership and a distant entity is not as important as finding and working for the right kind of agent.

    Advice to Management

    more background checks into agents
