    Pros

    State Farm treats their workers very well. The agent I worked for was very demanding but still very understanding. The office operated very well and everyone got along.

    Cons

    As with all insurance, there are many unsatisfied customers that are angry when they call.

    Advice to Management

    Give each agency more freedom rather than strict corporate rules.

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

    Pros

    People are incredibly willing to help you and answer your questions. I was an intern there and was able to reach out to people from all over and from all levels of the company.

    They are willing to let you learn new things. I am an English major but was given the opportunity to make a web page for the internal site

    Cons

    My second summer interning at State Farm wasn't as great because I was not given meaningful projects to work on.

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

    Pros

    Other employees worked with were great and very helpful. Treated like a normal employee. Given very realistic preview of the normal office routine. Great support.

    Cons

    Not many. Kind of slow at times but that is to be expected. If your interested in a summer internship program, State Farm is a great place to look.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the program to keep younger employees with a lot of talent looking at the company for a career.
