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

    Pros

    If you are seeking an entry level job in business/marketing, State Farm is an excellent choice. They offer online training tools, boot camps and have a somewhat structured working environment because each office is required to use State Farms online system for processing.There is always someone available to answer your questions through State Farms regional offices.

    Cons

    Working as a "team member" in an Agent's office you are an employee of the Agent Owner and not State Farm. You feel a bit isolated from the company at times. Although you are licensed as an insurance agent in your state, you are not considered an "Agent" of any kind in the office. You are a team member and depending upon the demeanor of Agent you work for can be looked at as no more than a glorified secretary rather than an insurance sales agent.

    Advice to Management

    Regional face-to-face team member training and team building exercises between local offices would build comradely and commitment. I believe this is something the company has discontinued.


  2. "Stability but stagnant for an outsider."

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

    Pros

    Great stability and fair compensation. Hours are great compared to similar companies. You can actually have a life outside of work.

    Cons

    No training department at all. You get 'online modules' to learn how to use new computer programs that seemingly come out every year. Have very antiquated computer programs. Emphasis on program(s). There is more than one when some companies have one single program. For somebody who didn't have a parent as an agent or management, they are pretty much stuck as an office assistant. State Farm has a 'Good ole Boys' feel to it.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of spinning your wheels every year coming out with new computer programs, come up with one singular program that you can quote both P&C and Life on. Not several that do only one job.
