    I worked at State Farm (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gained experience in the insurance industry. Learned the process of acquiring and servicing clients. Friendly and approachable supervisors. Good training in products and business model.

    Cons

    Lots of cold calling. Basically read from a script on every phone call. Work can be very repetitive and boring. Possible long periods of time with little success because of how they have you call. Clients can be rude. If sales isn't your thing, this is not a good fit. Also was unpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more meaningful work for interns. Take them with you to go see clients once in a while. Don't be afraid to listen to suggestions from employees.

    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.

    Advice to Management

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

    Internship was a lot of fun and a great introduction to the company.

    The internship does not correlate to a full-time position with the company.

    Too much focus on rigid hierarchy (should work claims/underwriting to get to agent, should be agent to get to AFO, should be at AFO before working in higher management)

    Pros

    My perspective is a little different since I interned with State Farm. I thought the internship was great. I got paid well and the hours were very flexible. There were also many extracurricular activities for employees that I participated in. I was on an Ultimate Frisbee team and I had a paid trip to Six Flags with the rest of the interns. The intern housing was also a good experience.

    Cons

    The feedback from management was a little questionable. Sometimes it felt like I was unimportant, even though I knew I was. I did get to meet many members of upper management, which was a unique experience.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure interns are fully involved, not just with work but also with team and mentor meetings.
