    Advice to Management

    Advice to management would be to keep doing what you're doing. The internship experience has really helped me to develop as a person and I hope that this continues.

    Pros

    Everyone who works here is very warm and friendly...Really...EVERYONE. Also, the research projects are broad in range and involve lots of different areas of expertise. Often, the projects seem only barely related to insurance at all, which is fantastic since I don't really know about insurance nor do I care to learn about it. Instead we get to propose project ideas that interest us and get to play with the 3D printer, VR headsets, and all kinds of cutting-edge technologies.

    Cons

    The red tape goes on for miles and miles.

    Also, you have to tell people you work at an insurance company, and then they'll ask you, "why does my insurance cost $XX?".

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

    Pros

    This has been a great place to grow and learn about the world of insurance. Good boss, great team, and easy environment to work in. Great sales training and I've learned a lot about customer service. As a whole, State Farm is definitely on the up-swing. They have been doing very well lately, but it will be interesting to see what happens to them in the next decade with self-driving cars.

    Cons

    The salary sucks. With a college degree, there are a whole lot better jobs that you can go into. Unless your want to be an agent one day, there isn't much use sticking around for very long. After the internship they require you to move so there is no ability to stay in your same town. Now, I live in a small town so this may be different in bigger cities.
