I have been working at State Farm full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great benefits

Coworkers are willing to help and open to feedback
Great training for individuals with no insurance experience

Cons

Micro-managed environment
High levels of stress dealing with customers expectations
Call center with extremely high incoming call volume
In order to advance, you must go above and beyond

Advice to Management

Focus more on rewarding and allowing hard workers opportunity for advancement. Starting salary is too low for type of work expected. Focus more on keeping pace with competitors as some internal operations can be improved

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

    Pros

    Benefits and pay are very good. Still have retirement as well as a 401k insurance you have to pay for which is the norm anymore. Work environment is good as well as other employees were great to work with.

    Cons

    Attending countless meetings that are not required. Prioritizing of high priority work is not done in a structured fashion. Also missing insight into the direction of the company as a whole and how to better server the agents from an IT perspective misses the mark.
