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

Pros

You never have to choose between your ethics and your job. Benefits are excellent. Excellent job security.

Cons

The pay is not astounding. Management can be a bit conservative and it's giving them trouble in trying to adapt to market changes. Even though they recognize this, they are still making missteps in trying to adapt.

Advice to Management

Be more clear to the lower level employees about future changes instead of sending out hyperactive buzzword filled videos.

    I worked at State Farm full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work schedule was nice - 8:00 - 4:30 pm. If you want a typical schedule that didn't require much time outside of the work day this is a good fit; allows for family/work balance. Always good to be a part of the team that is a leader in the industry.

    Cons

    Lots of layers within an organization making it difficult to make progress at times. It became stifling at times to have to answer to multiple bosses. It was a typical cubical environment that was not inspiring or invoked creativity. Lots of familial ties within the organization. Difficult to advance if you were not related to someone internally.

    Advice to Management

    Tenure does not always equal skills/capabilities. Micromanagement styles result in team feeling undervalued or not trusted.
