    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

    I really enjoyed the people that I worked with and also the ability to move up in the company.

    Cons

    If you work hard then you will be able to move up rapidly. The potential agent program is really good training for the insurance industry.

    I worked at State Farm part-time

    Pros

    Fun, interesting place to work with a lot of flexibility and understanding for students.

    Cons

    Sometimes project teams can get a little bloated, but that helps keep things flexible during the school year, so it is understandable

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, you've created an interesting and fun place to work for a variety of students

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

    Pros

    I helped the State Farm agent with upgrading the computer based database to online database ABS. The work environment was good and the people were nice.

    Cons

    When I had to cold call customers to update and verify their information, they would be rude or sometimes they believed that I am fake calling to get their personal information.

    "Great environment and experience"

    I worked at State Farm (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The environment at the office in Champaign was very laid back and open. The office was mainly interns (about 80 or so) with about 4-5 supervisors total. Each intern had their own desk, but sat near other interns, which encouraged collaboration. There were plenty of intern events as well to meet other interns.

    Cons

    The hours at the facility were fairly strict - if you needed to stay late, that was not an option. Or if you needed to work a little more, you had to somehow fit it into your schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the setup and environment the same, but allow for some people to work outside of the hours (occasionally). Otherwise, it was a great experience!

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

    Pros

    Large, professional company with great resources. State Farm will reward you if you are goal oriented and invest in your career. Great training and endless opportunities.

    Cons

    People who work low wage customer service jobs get burned out on the phones just like any other company but if they take initiative they usually can work their way up in a couple years to a lot of other areas.
