    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to grow and advance in the company. They had strong values that were seen throughout the corporate environment.

    Cons

    As an intern the even though you have a big hand in delivering sales for the agent and everyone in the office, you don't get bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Not much advice is needed. Everything that I have seen so far makes me a firm believer int he company.

    Pros

    Decent pay for the amount of work you have to do.
    Relatively low stress.
    Great work/life balance.
    There is a lot of opportunity to move to any department if you're willing to go through training.
    State Farm uses consultants that help get a lot of work done.

    Cons

    The corporate headquarters is in Bloomington, IL.

    When making a career path change within the company, the training provided to prepare you for a new job isn't always the best.

    The systems (computer/technical) department isn't full of the most competent minds. Part of the problem is that State Farm tries to be really accommodating for individuals seeking new career opportunities and it's common for non-technical people to move into technical jobs. Some technical jobs require a formal computer related education.

    Software development is not that exciting at State Farm, it's rather mundane.

    Advice to Management

    Don't purchase software that is meant to aid employees before talking to the employees who will be forced to use it.

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

    Pros

    Other employees worked with were great and very helpful. Treated like a normal employee. Given very realistic preview of the normal office routine. Great support.

    Cons

    Not many. Kind of slow at times but that is to be expected. If your interested in a summer internship program, State Farm is a great place to look.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the program to keep younger employees with a lot of talent looking at the company for a career.
