    Pros

    Great staff to work with and everyone was friendly. After my time there I did my job so well I got a letter of recommendation from my boss.

    Cons

    Nothing at all. Overall amazing people to work with and I still keep in contact with most of them. Only con was that it was a contract position and I would totally have gone back if I could.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work!

    Pros

    Conservative company. Very stable. Well known to consumers. Excellent service and claims,

    Cons

    Company cares most about life insurance sales. Unfortunately, car insurance, home insurance, banking and mutual funds are not considered very important.

    Advice to Management

    Take a holistic approach to how agents are compensated and focus on growing revenue in all areas. Stop making life insurance sales be 95% of the agents sales goals.

    Pros

    It is very flexible for the schdule, but it may depend on different employer. It is good to ask questions for everything you concern.

    Cons

    Not too much teamwork jobs. It is more about individual work, if you want to gain more experience about teamwork, communicate to the employers is very important

  9. Great company! The people and cuslture are what makes this company thrive!

    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.
