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

    Pros

    I truly enjoyed my summer internship at State Farm where I was able to grow and contribute my skills in a professional setting.The experience offered personal growth and a solid work-life balance. I was able to ask questions and learn something new each day.

    Cons

    Overall I enjoyed my experience at State Farm. Despite my positive experience, I did not gain full exposure to the more than one many facets of business they operate in.

    Advice to Management

    I generally agree with the management strategy implemented at State Farm Insurance but I would suggest a more organized internship program with specifically detailed responsibilities and learning practices for entry level workers.

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

    Pros

    Excellent Salary (actually, unbelievable for an intern)
    Flexible Hours
    Tons of opportunities to learn and for growth

    Cons

    Policy doesn't allow company to give recommendations to future employers outside of state farm...which for interns who HAVE to find a regular job after the internship and do not necessarily want to stay with SF, this is a downside.
    Majority of jobs are in Bloomington, IL.

    Advice to Management

    Consider changing the "no recommendations to outside employers" policy for interns.
