    Pros

    This has been a great place to grow and learn about the world of insurance. Good boss, great team, and easy environment to work in. Great sales training and I've learned a lot about customer service. As a whole, State Farm is definitely on the up-swing. They have been doing very well lately, but it will be interesting to see what happens to them in the next decade with self-driving cars.

    Cons

    The salary sucks. With a college degree, there are a whole lot better jobs that you can go into. Unless your want to be an agent one day, there isn't much use sticking around for very long. After the internship they require you to move so there is no ability to stay in your same town. Now, I live in a small town so this may be different in bigger cities.

  2. Interning at State Farm was an excellent learning experience.

    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 Management

    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.

  3. I worked as an intern for an agent in NYC. I learned so much every day and enjoyed my experience for the most part.

    Some customers were gems and really made my day.

    The office culture was a bit unprofessional when customers weren't present and the agent can be a little crazy.

    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.
