Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Focus on people and their development. Lots of opportunities to move around internally. Promote from within culture. Mature IT architecture and understanding of importance to the organization.

Cons

IT organization is very large so its easy to get lost in the weeds. Also due to its size, lots of processes and internal governance structures which can impact solution delivery timelinies. IT focus on attaining Insurance designations.

Advice to Management

We are in a period of rapid change, continue to engage and communicate with employees to express the vision and whats coming next.
