    I worked at State Farm (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Has been an industry leader for decades. Good people, good pay.

    Cons

    Some disconnect between Corporate initiatives and reality as far as customer service levels and employee engagement. Have also let a lot of experienced talent walk out the door in the rush to centralize operations in big hub cities.

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

    Pros

    Always something to do or learn! Always meeting new people. Learned a lot in the first few months. Always someone to help you out if you don't know the answer.

    Cons

    Cold calling. Rejection. Hours can be long if you want to make money. Have to put a lot of effort to get a good understanding in a short period of time.

    Current Employee - Office Manager in Los Angeles, CA (US)

    I have been working at State Farm full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for SF for 8 years on the agency side. I don't have one complaint. My pay is very good 65K plus a year. Time off is great and office culture is amazing. Working under and Agent vs SF Corporate allows the agent to make decisions. Working for in an office is like any other small business each situation is unique.

    Cons

    Anyone who works in Agency that complains about the office or agent the work for its simple leave. If you are a good team member who knows what they are doing and does it will there are plenty of good agency. There are many agents that pay well, repeat their team members and make working in insurance fun. People also need to understand that State Farm have no control over how agents manage their employees. Most long term team members consider this a major PLUS..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on operations. It is frustrating for team members to have 30 minute hold times when trying to get help from our SF departments.

    State Farm is such a big company sometime it's easy to get lost, as long as you make sure you're active and known you should not have a problem.

    Annual reviews for all employees, agents and agents team members would be a great way to get more production.
