    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    The environment is relaxed. Nothing is really rushed unless you really fall behind on work. The job also gives you a lot of free time to do your own hobbies or see your family. During the internship I learned a lot and they made if specifically flexible so that you can move at your own pace to maximize learning.
    They also started building more "modern" break areas that are actually quite relaxing to work in.

    Cons

    At times it gets TOO relaxed. If it's a Friday, good luck getting anybody to do work. Though this applies to other companies as well.
    Some managers come from the wrong places. State Farm sometimes places Sales managers in technical areas which ends up with sticky situations. Personally, I had no problem with my manager, but I have heard horror stories.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing to make your employees happy and push your company image because some employees don't even like State Farm.

    Pros

    Small office environment. Practice phone skills, Learn about a variety of insurance products. Coworkers were easy to work with.

    Cons

    You will spend most of your days cold calling former State Farm customers or people on random lists provided to you by the agent. Don't really get exposure to other areas unless you are persistent and ask the agent.

    Prices are not competitive. People do not want to switch if you do not bundle home and auto.
