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

    Pros

    I truly enjoyed my summer internship at State Farm where I was able to grow and contribute my skills in a professional setting.The experience offered personal growth and a solid work-life balance. I was able to ask questions and learn something new each day.

    Cons

    Overall I enjoyed my experience at State Farm. Despite my positive experience, I did not gain full exposure to the more than one many facets of business they operate in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I generally agree with the management strategy implemented at State Farm Insurance but I would suggest a more organized internship program with specifically detailed responsibilities and learning practices for entry level workers.

    I worked at State Farm

    Pros

    State Farm maintains a very innovative environment, providing interesting technical projects for IT/Systems interns. All the projects are important to the firm, so you are able to actually contribute with your creative thinking.

    Cons

    There are not many tech people in the firm, so when working on the tech project, you might not able to find a direct go-to person for questions. You have to figure out many of the problems on your own.
