    I worked at State Farm (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The agent I worked for was very flexible and willing to work with me as I learned throughout the summer.

    Cons

    The position wasn't really for me - I learned so much and definitely acquired some new skills but I really didn't enjoy the work that much

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! I really enjoyed working there - everyone is so nice.

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

    Pros

    State Farm is a company with LOTS of great people. There is a term at corporate called "State Farm nice" which basically means that everyone is friendly and pretty easy to work with overall. Management for me was great and cared about my personal growth throughout my internship. There were lots of opportunities for interns to grow professionally and my intern class had great people who I still keep in contact with months after the end of the internship.

    Cons

    It can be hard to get projects done in a timely manner due to the bureaucracy that comes with a large company. Sometimes working with other departments can be hard due to cultural differences between departments.

    I worked at State Farm (More than a year)

    Pros

    You definitely do real work, get real experience, and get a real pay as your motto suggests. The RDC serves as an incubator for good ideas that they aren't able to get to at Corporate.

    Cons

    Since you are students, sometimes it feels like they are treating you as children. But, you are still learning.

    Some projects are just busy work

    Pros

    Everyone who works here is very warm and friendly...Really...EVERYONE. Also, the research projects are broad in range and involve lots of different areas of expertise. Often, the projects seem only barely related to insurance at all, which is fantastic since I don't really know about insurance nor do I care to learn about it. Instead we get to propose project ideas that interest us and get to play with the 3D printer, VR headsets, and all kinds of cutting-edge technologies.

    Cons

    The red tape goes on for miles and miles.

    Also, you have to tell people you work at an insurance company, and then they'll ask you, "why does my insurance cost $XX?".

    Pros

    Good place to work as the team is just starting to do lot of things in the Data Science field

    Cons

    As of now being in a Data Science Team, I don't see any cons

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

    Pros

    State Farm provides a great work life balance mixed with great benefits to supplement this. The community around State Farm is very family friendly. Great culture and values.

    Cons

    Can be somewhat of a limitation in career advancement and their is little room for placement in other cities besides Bloomington-Normal as a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate employees better. Many employees are complacent with just doing enough work to get by. New "excellence" programs get in the way of people doing work efficiently.
