    I have been working at State Farm as an intern

    Good people, company cares about you, lots of fun activities for interns, not a lot of stressful work

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

    Pros

    The Corporate South Summer Internship program was one of the greatest experiences of my life. It was a full-time job, with a nice paycheck; but it was also job experience that I never expected to obtain. State Farm is full of fantastic people and resources.

    Cons

    Not all interns are placed in departments that are as engaging as mine was. However, you can always express your disinterest/issues with where you are placed. Another con: it's in the middle of nowhere, Illinois.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! The intern coordinators really care about their students.

    I have been working at State Farm full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Can't think of any now...

    Cons

    Alot of changes in the last 4+ years have turned this once great company into a bad one. Not giving any oportunities to tenured employees, major cut back on benefits, more focus on profits than the customers and the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Sure keep the company forward but do thing like the Old SF. Look at the numbers! This NEW SF isn't working!

    I have been working at State Farm full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, people, first line management

    Cons

    Metrics achieved through process manipulation, senior management detachment, workload, volume of changes implemented at once creating chaos and frustration

    Advice to Management

    Senior and Executive leadership need to reconnect with the process by collaborating with those that complete the process daily, listen to employee and customer feedback, advise not to continue to lose what makes us unique while trying to stay competitive

    I have been working at State Farm full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, but they are slowly going away

    Cons

    Everything is measured, and the metrics really have nothing to do with your quality of work.

    Advice to Management

    To upper management, focus back on the employees. We have too many experienced people leaving.
