    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.

    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?".

    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.

    Free food at lunch is the best thing and I can make lots of copies

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

    Pros

    Excellent Salary (actually, unbelievable for an intern)
    Flexible Hours
    Tons of opportunities to learn and for growth

    Cons

    Policy doesn't allow company to give recommendations to future employers outside of state farm...which for interns who HAVE to find a regular job after the internship and do not necessarily want to stay with SF, this is a downside.
    Majority of jobs are in Bloomington, IL.

    Advice to Management

    Consider changing the "no recommendations to outside employers" policy for interns.
