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

    Pros

    Able to help you reach your career goals, align projects with your interests, helps expose you to the company as a whole

    Cons

    I have yet to run into cons, especially with new offices opening in 3 large cities. I do not hear many people complain about the opportunities the company has for them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and your employees will be happy. I have enjoyed my time working at the company immensely

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

    Pros

    Everyone very nice, willing to help learn processes, even though Insurance company it is a huge IT hub. I have interned in the summer at the headquarters, and I returned as part-time because I loved my work and time in the summer.

    Cons

    The pay could be higher for College-Co-op's

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

    Pros

    Thoroughly enjoyed my time at State Farm. Great opportunities available in Systems (expanding to 2 hubs), Innovation, Ad Services and other departments. State Farm really does care about work/life balance and takes time to develop its employees. I knew of several coworkers who had moved around 5+ times for different positions, cities, etc.

    Cons

    Bloomington, IL... If you're extremely family-focused, it can be great. However, the size of the town in combination with the fact that most people you see out at night also work at State Farm is extremely tough. State Farm is a scary commitment for a new grad.

    Advice to Management

    If possible, try to offer more flexible opportunities location-wise (beyond Systems). Young talent can be very attracted to the company, but less-so to Bloomington, IL. The people who commit full-time out of school seem to be of the same mindset, which can affect diversity.

    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.
