I have been working at State Farm full-time

Pros

Stability, constantly jobs available to move into, benefits great (pool, park, pension, 401k, bonus/ raises), lots of nice people

Cons

Bloomington is in between big cities so you are sort of out in the middle of nowhere, so much red tape, every question answered with "No", many clueless people in middle management positions, constant reorganizations

    I worked at State Farm full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a strong work culture, people work as a team, the company is very corporately run, and there is a process for everything.

    Cons

    Systems are extremely antiquated, very low potential for career advancement, company has conservative stance on products, pricing is expensive and does not vouch for consumer. It is viewed as a company that is old and slow.

    Advice to Management

    Need to ramp up computer systems! Compensation for sales reps need to increase (especially in the SF Bay area), there needs to be more support for customer service reps. If you don't setup a good system, reps find workarounds to make things happen anyway (and usually those workarounds aren't something you want). Too many steps in quoting system.
