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

    Pros

    Great interview process - intense with great focus on core competencies as well as the requirement to prepare and submit a business plan.

    Cons

    Poor training and expectations were set for compensation that was unrealistic. They get you to bite and then after you have invested a great deal of time and money (and left a great paying job) you are stuck. They tell you that you will be your own boss - a business owner - but you are really middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Need more consistency in training and make sure your recruiters are selling the reality of the opportunity...not the "best case scenario" that is highly unlikely.
