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

    Pros

    It was good pay but I had worked there for over 20 years so I had earned to the salary. My coworkers were wonderful!

    Cons

    Everything has changed. State Farm used to be the best company to work for. They no longer are caring and micro manage their employees on all levels. You are strictly reviewed and the workload is overwhelming because they keep making the departments cut back employees, however they are adding job duties to all positions. Management has to sit with every employee and review them at least once a week. There is so much stress that the employees are unhappy and it is coming across in their customer service. I have a friend who cries almost daily at work because she is so stressed and she is an upbeat hard worker. It is truly a nightmare and has gone from a fantastic place to work to one of the worst work environments imaginable.

    Advice to Management

    Change back to a company who cares about their employees and stop the "future state" because it is killing what used to be a wonderful company!

    Pros

    The best property and casualty insurance company by far. They use to have so many perks and incentives. Easy sells! Brand recognition

    Cons

    Low pay working for an agent, no room to grow unless you go into agency which takes 5yrs, locked in at your current pay. Corporate employees get great benefits, agent staff get a high deductible plan.. It's a JOKE! You sell sell sell, but get nothing in return, but free lunches, a plaque, and a few email shout outs. If you're lucky you will eventually reach 40K in salary a year.

    Advice to Management

    They need to employee the agency staff to help regulate the mess that goes on in the office.
