    Pros

    Great company, Time Off, Benefits OK. Pay could be better, Amazing work life balace

    Cons

    No in between with the company . For example you work EVERY Saturday or Sunday, or Both (minimum 9/10 hours). They are behind the times because alot of companies offer work from home opportunities...NOT State Farm. Hard to advance into management even when you're doing an outstanding job. If you're in the call center the only other place they push you to is Claims (ILR or Express), which alot of people don't want to go that route.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make it so difficult for good employees to advance into management positions
