    Pros

    Small office environment. Practice phone skills, Learn about a variety of insurance products. Coworkers were easy to work with.

    You will spend most of your days cold calling former State Farm customers or people on random lists provided to you by the agent. Don't really get exposure to other areas unless you are persistent and ask the agent.

    Prices are not competitive. People do not want to switch if you do not bundle home and auto.

    I worked at State Farm (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gained experience in the insurance industry. Learned the process of acquiring and servicing clients. Friendly and approachable supervisors. Good training in products and business model.

    Cons

    Lots of cold calling. Basically read from a script on every phone call. Work can be very repetitive and boring. Possible long periods of time with little success because of how they have you call. Clients can be rude. If sales isn't your thing, this is not a good fit. Also was unpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more meaningful work for interns. Take them with you to go see clients once in a while. Don't be afraid to listen to suggestions from employees.
