    I worked at State Farm full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -this company is huge, tons of roles to grow into. Put in good work and take advantage of openings/opportunities and you can have a very good career here
    -management is hit or miss at a lot of companies, but they do a good job promoting here from what I experienced in claims
    -nice benefits.

    Cons

    -like a lot of big companies, some of your coworkers will be "lifers" who probably aren't there to wow anyone but collect a paycheck. Can feel a little "office space"-y in some of the regional offices, but they're consolidating in certain cities now

    Advice to Management

    keep trusting your people to do good work

    I have been working at State Farm full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, located in the east valley, decent benefits. Good shift variety. Large company that looks good on a resume.

    Cons

    Micromanaging, lack of caring leaders, over burdened by processes. Poor training. Poor hiring and interviewing process. Rigid/inflexible system. Poor vision casting.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to seek managers who share the value of building relationships and have the capability to cast vision and inspire their associates. I would also advise to provide these managers who share the corporate values more authority, empowering them to make a bigger difference in he lives of their associates.

    Pros

    Established company with a strong positive reputation and brand perception.

    Cons

    Company is struggling to adapt to new ways of doing things, changing consumer expectations and struggling to set and achieve objectives. Culture is out of synch with the present day. Leadership does not address problems in employees and they are allowed to flourish. Too many managers, and many managers do not allow their employees the space needed to do their job efficiently.
