Pros

Great work environment and a lot of good friends. Pay was decent for no experience. They take care of you.

Cons

Not much direction from the team. You are pretty much assigned a problem and they don't really mentor you through the process of writing production level code. A lot of the work doesn't actually see the light of day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make your intern's work have an impact.

    Pros

    Each independant agent is different to work for. Mine is great and I enjoy what I do as a whole and really have noo complaints about selling overall.

    Cons

    The claims process at SF is not a very friendly system. I do not think for as large as the company is they get back to people in a timely manner which makes for the office level a hard transisition because the client base looks at us for that service and we are left with little to no answers for them. Same with when underwriting cancels someone and the client wants to speak to someone, there is just nobody for them to talk to. It seems there are more cancelations anymore then there are happy clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the current clients happiness and satisfaction instead of getting that new client in the door. Keeping the ones you have happy and the word of mouth they will spread is equally as important as the new ones that will come in

    Current Employee - Systems Analyst III in Bloomington, IL (US)

    Pros

    Salary, vacation, benefits, pension and matching 401k.

    Cons

    If you want to be in the code, it is very difficult to advance. Small town culture. Too much process. Not a place to stay if you want to stay marketable in the IT industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loose the "what's best for State Farm" quote to encourage getting on board and focus more on doing the right thing.
