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

    Pros

    People are incredibly willing to help you and answer your questions. I was an intern there and was able to reach out to people from all over and from all levels of the company.

    They are willing to let you learn new things. I am an English major but was given the opportunity to make a web page for the internal site

    Cons

    My second summer interning at State Farm wasn't as great because I was not given meaningful projects to work on.

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

    Pros

    State Farm treats their workers very well. The agent I worked for was very demanding but still very understanding. The office operated very well and everyone got along.

    Cons

    As with all insurance, there are many unsatisfied customers that are angry when they call.

    Advice to Management

    Give each agency more freedom rather than strict corporate rules.

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

    Pros

    Pros as a Systems employee(at Bloomington Corporate South)
    - A lot of room for growth, promotions, raises, bonuses.
    - Jeans and t-shirts are daily wear(even some managers wear things like sports team jerseys. Obviously you want to dress nice for important days.)
    - Many people "work to live" instead of the other way around
    - 2 weeks vacation, 3 weeks after 5(?)
    - PTO for dentist appointments and stuff like that
    - Paid sick days
    - From what people said benefits were "decent"
    - Work from home days
    - Flexible hours
    - Pretty good salary and get raises fairly quickly.
    - Can apply to different positions at different locations
    - Leadership training
    - Will pay for MBA

    Pros as an intern:
    - $18-20 as a Systems Analyst intern.
    - 2 paid days off
    - Paid housings
    - Can start 401k (also I've heard internships count as time at the company and helps with retirement)
    - Many seniors got competitive full time offers.
    - Currently able to pick which location you want to work full time(Atlanta, Bloomington, Dallas, Phoenix)
    - Get to do real programming
    - Can be kept busy and not bored as an intern depending on team

    Cons

    Cons as a Systems employee
    - Most jobs in Bloomington(a.k.a. cornfield U.S.A.)
    - Afraid of making people worried so they keep a lot in the dark (a good example is the "Dual pair metroplex", either people have no idea what it is, or they're worried that everything related to the datacenter is moving to Dallas.)
    - Want to move people to hubs, but don't help their spouses that also work there
    - Some technologies are old and no one really wants to do them.

    Cons as an intern
    - Other IT interns at large corporations can be paid more.
    - Don't have any idea what you're doing before you get there
    - Many teams are not prepared for intern because they aren't sure what they're getting so they don't know what type of work to have planned.
    - People who would be returning interns still don't know if they have an offer for next year.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to interns earlier in internships, at the end I had many directors and AVPs ask why no one had any meetings with them, because interns don't realize that we can reach out to them.
