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

    Pros

    State Farm provides a great work life balance mixed with great benefits to supplement this. The community around State Farm is very family friendly. Great culture and values.

    Cons

    Can be somewhat of a limitation in career advancement and their is little room for placement in other cities besides Bloomington-Normal as a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate employees better. Many employees are complacent with just doing enough work to get by. New "excellence" programs get in the way of people doing work efficiently.

    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.

    Pros

    State Farm maintains a very innovative environment, providing interesting technical projects for IT/Systems interns. All the projects are important to the firm, so you are able to actually contribute with your creative thinking.

    Cons

    There are not many tech people in the firm, so when working on the tech project, you might not able to find a direct go-to person for questions. You have to figure out many of the problems on your own.

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

    Pros

    It varies, but I interns are overall pretty free to develop as they see fit.
    Flexible hours.
    A few fun activities throughout the semester.

    Cons

    Progress can be slow and people in the company often don't email back if you have questions.
    Lots of paperwork to do simple things.
    Lots of restrictions on what we're allowed to do, such as download software on the provided machines.
    Not a ton of feedback, as projects leads often don't have a programing background and you may only be around fellow interns who know as much as you.
