I worked at State Farm part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

They have awesome benefits, great environment, some managers actually care about you and aren't fake, true move up potential, and overall a great company to work for.

Cons

If you don't pass the licensing test after 2 tries, you are SOL!!! The 2nd chance to take the test is way harder than the first one. After the 2nd chance, most of us failed. Not to scare you, but just being real with you. We had study groups and got a chance everyday to study together at work and even at home and it didn't seem to help. Good luck to all of you on the test if you have to take it.

Advice to Management

The few that are fake, just be yourself. To the others, keep doing what your doing b/c you are awesome!

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

    Pros

    Solid senior leadership has led to a very healthy and competitive organization, many jobs within one employer, lots of opportunity if you are willing to work for it. Interesting and challenging work, ethical company, good management/employee relations. Involvement in the community is strong.

    Cons

    Currently jobs are transitioning to primary sites (Dallas, Phoenix, Atlanta and Bloomington, IL) so mobilty to those sites is essential for the best opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus, maintain the strong leadership position, respect the long term employees' experience and develop ways to leverage it best during the transition. Facing likelihiood of considerable knowledge loss.
