I have been working at State Farm full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Doing nothing and still getting paid. Benefits really suck everyone seems to think that they are great but you really have to pay. The 401k match is ok but I have seen better from smaller organizations.

Cons

They value insurance education over everything and they hire you who you are instead of what you can do. Working in Bloomington it is really race based. Had a lot of encounters with race complaints. A lot of changes, many not for the better. Off shoring a lot of work. I am currently looking for another job. Have a few interviews lined up.

Advice to Management

Stop lying so much

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

    Pros

    There are numerous opportunities to find challenge in your work. It can be quite stimulating and rewarding. There is often room to define your own expectations.

    Cons

    There are as many obstacles to performing well and seeking stimulation as there are opportunities. Clarity of expectations can lead to miscommunication issues and disappointment.

    Advice to Management

    If expectations are to perform at a high level (and they should be), then care should be taken to remove barriers. Careful consideration could be given to elements of high performing work environment.
