    I worked at State Farm as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Thoroughly enjoyed my time at State Farm. Great opportunities available in Systems (expanding to 2 hubs), Innovation, Ad Services and other departments. State Farm really does care about work/life balance and takes time to develop its employees. I knew of several coworkers who had moved around 5+ times for different positions, cities, etc.

    Cons

    Bloomington, IL... If you're extremely family-focused, it can be great. However, the size of the town in combination with the fact that most people you see out at night also work at State Farm is extremely tough. State Farm is a scary commitment for a new grad.

    Advice to Management

    If possible, try to offer more flexible opportunities location-wise (beyond Systems). Young talent can be very attracted to the company, but less-so to Bloomington, IL. The people who commit full-time out of school seem to be of the same mindset, which can affect diversity.

    I worked at State Farm (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The agent I worked for was very flexible and willing to work with me as I learned throughout the summer.

    Cons

    The position wasn't really for me - I learned so much and definitely acquired some new skills but I really didn't enjoy the work that much

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! I really enjoyed working there - everyone is so nice.
