    I have been working at State Farm as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with a bunch of interns that are your age and get pretty interesting work compared to a lot of "intern work" at big companies

    Cons

    The people are very friendly but seem to be very settled in their careers and lack motivation to do more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep professionals motivated by encouraging growth. Employees should want to find new opportunities and not just settle in where they are. Great family culture, but lack of fit when you have a very professional mindset.

    I have been working at State Farm as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Provides a lot of training, super friendly staff, variety of projects to get different experiences

    Cons

    Can get boring since it is insurance, but the company cares a lot about developing you.

    Advice to Management

    It can get annoying being an intern at innovation ready and knowing that it would take a significant amount of time to get our idea through with the many barriers a company as large as State Farm has.

    I have been working at State Farm as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gained experience and exposure to what the insurance business was all about. Had a great team and enjoyed going to work for the most part. Some good skills to add to your resume.

    Cons

    Team members aren't always perfect at agencies. Low pay as an intern. Felt somewhat dead end if you don't want to go the agent route or move to Bloomington.

    Advice to Management

    Pay team members more, other than that you do a fantastic job. I don't know a lot about the management culture at corporate.

    I have been working at State Farm as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice people, decent hours (9am to 4 or 5pm), I am able to work on what I want to work on throughout the day with the help of any of the office staff when I need them.

    Cons

    Lower hourly rate than what I would like, office staff is not getting commission for any of their sales, the agent gets all of it which I think is not very fair (but it does not really affect me, I just feel bad for the ladies putting in all the work)

    Advice to Management

    Encourage agents to commission their staff.
