    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall a great company, Id like to see Improved team member training and offer either higher pay or a benefits package to attract better employees. State Farm is the lowest paying of all the big insurance companies

    I have been working at State Farm

    Pros

    Good benefits, good work-life balance, good colleagues

    Cons

    Recruiter promised help with finding my husband work. I didn't expect them to find him a job, but literally all they did was to suggest that he go to the website and apply there. No help with forging connections or finding a match. My spouse is highly qualified but not in my department, so I've been unable to help him make connections.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bloomington, IL. is a small city with few job opportunities outside State Farm. If you want to keep your employees, actively help their family members find work. Odds are I will be seeking a tech job on the West Coast so that both I and my spouse can have good jobs and live in the same city. If you would have helped him, I'd be content to stay in Bloomington. You probably lose a lot of good employees because their spouses can't find decent jobs in Bloomington, even if they're qualified for a job at your company.

    In Office Managers are very understanding and caring. Upper management is all about numbers.
