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

    Pros

    The Corporate South Summer Internship program was one of the greatest experiences of my life. It was a full-time job, with a nice paycheck; but it was also job experience that I never expected to obtain. State Farm is full of fantastic people and resources.

    Cons

    Not all interns are placed in departments that are as engaging as mine was. However, you can always express your disinterest/issues with where you are placed. Another con: it's in the middle of nowhere, Illinois.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! The intern coordinators really care about their students.
