Pros

Once you learn the State Farm "system" you are an asset to any Agent. Agents will pay for you to get your insurance licenses.

Cons

There is little appreciation given to team members. Most agents keep State Farm bonuses for YOUR hard work and sales. You have a lot of responsibility and are not compensated accordingly. Most offices are understaffed and you can't take time off. I don't find agents to be understanding when you have emergencies yet they come in when they please. I am very dissatisfied after 3 years and would like to work somewhere that I am appreciated.

Advice to Management

Look to team members to get any information as to what is going on with customers. Make agents give bonuses to team members that actually make the sales. Make agents pay team members within the same ranges for same experience. Realize agents get too much of the credit the team members deserve.

    Pros

    The people are great, there is the possiblity of upward movement however you need to be willing to relocate to a different area and continue your education in the insurance field to be considered.

    Cons

    Although you are a claims adjuster the environment you work in is a call center. In times of high claim volume you may work up to 60 hours a week with out the benefit of overtime pay.

    Advice to Management

    Micro management of professional/techincal adults is dehumanizing


  2. "handle and deliver all marketing products"
