    I have been working at State Farm

    Pros

    Projected growth is huge over the next year. Plenty of advancement and cross- department opportunities. A fun environment. Thorough training. Great culture. Competitive wages. Paid time off awarded to you at the start. Benefits available to all employees, even part-time. This includes an annual bonus.

    Cons

    A lot of positions start part-time, as little as 24 hours per week. If you can't deal with that, it may be tough on you to start. But there are multiple opportunities during the year to bid for other shifts.

    The agency side of Insurance is less stressful than working claims.

    I have been working at State Farm

    Pros

    Great company with a lot of products to sell. I work for a low pressure Agent. The agent you work under makes a huge difference.

    Cons

    The company is too departmentalized. Each policy change, quote or query has 10-20 extra steps. Agents do not actually quote a policy, they gather info to send to the Underwriting Department or the Service Department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the process. So much time is spent on service that sales suffer.
