    "Great environment and experience"

    I worked at State Farm (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The environment at the office in Champaign was very laid back and open. The office was mainly interns (about 80 or so) with about 4-5 supervisors total. Each intern had their own desk, but sat near other interns, which encouraged collaboration. There were plenty of intern events as well to meet other interns.

    Cons

    The hours at the facility were fairly strict - if you needed to stay late, that was not an option. Or if you needed to work a little more, you had to somehow fit it into your schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the setup and environment the same, but allow for some people to work outside of the hours (occasionally). Otherwise, it was a great experience!

    Pros

    I helped the State Farm agent with upgrading the computer based database to online database ABS. The work environment was good and the people were nice.

    Cons

    When I had to cold call customers to update and verify their information, they would be rude or sometimes they believed that I am fake calling to get their personal information.

    "Agent Intern"

    Former Employee - Agent Intern in Williamsburg, VA

    I worked at State Farm full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent sales training, great pay during internship process

    Cons

    Terrible leadership and full of Kool-Aid...if you are unable to sell insurance making $60k+/year during the internship process, how do you expect somebody making $10/hour to sell something?

    Most agents go into $50-$75k debt during their first year, and it takes 3+ years to begin making any $. Look elsewhere and do not buy into their lies

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with recruits, increase commission and make sales goals more realistic. Stop over saturating markets with agents.
