    I have been working at State Farm full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good. We are allowed to work overtime. Limited micromanagers but depends on manager.

    Cons

    Unsure about future state means for us. Different schedule? Call center environment? Location? Bigger caseloads?

    Decisions are obviously not made in consideration of the mass employees. Ex, location of where to house employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personal performance evaluations ahould not be a consensus of what all other managers think. It should only be the manager and the representative.

    Divide complex sectionsninto groups and compensate for such on an ascending scale. E,, complex departments should be compensated more money.

    I have been working at State Farm

    Pros

    its a stable job or a perfect career you can fall back on. People will always need insurance, and you get to help them figure out what works best for them. If you enjoy learning, and helping people out (sometimes difficult) then i recommned getting your insurance licenses.

    Cons

    starting out can be tough, learning the systems, learning to sell the products.

    I worked at State Farm as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    The work areas, cafeteria and gym are handy but our workspace areas should be kept cleaner.

    Cons

    Management should refrain from using unprofessional terminology such as cherry pickers etc. They really need to be more professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All employees whether temp or permanent should be evaluated on total work product and production.
