I worked at State Farm as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

They are generous with time for their employees. They feel very much like a traditional company like your parents worked for where you stay with one employer and they take care of you even through retirement and up until you die.

Cons

Management seems to waste an awful lot of money. There's a lot of down time where you aren't getting any real work done.

    I worked at State Farm full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits & PTO better than average.

    Cons

    Good old boys club...advancement opportunities slim if you are not a member of the club. Management has trust issues and are not REALLY policed by upper management. Employees won't speak up regarding local management. When they no longer want you around they make very difficult for you. Ride you to the ground and disect your work under a microscope. When they are really finished with you HR will tag you unemployable so as not to try and rehire. If you don't have a college degree don't even try to get hired. You're waisting your time...

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to know your team members. Try to remember where you came from. You are playing with people's lives here!

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

    Pros

    Co Workers are generally caring and compassionate
    Most employees are dedicated and hard workers
    Benefits and vacation time

    I've been with the company 29 years and had some really strict managers but this micromanaging is absurd. It's just not good karma or good for your primary employee base. Anybody tells you different hasn't been with the company long enough....I like my job and the company just not all the politics.

    Cons

    Too much micro management
    No much opportunity unless you have a degree and are mobile
    More about the numbers
    Communication

    Advice to Management

    Get organized through out the company
