    Pros

    I truly enjoyed my summer internship at State Farm where I was able to grow and contribute my skills in a professional setting.The experience offered personal growth and a solid work-life balance. I was able to ask questions and learn something new each day.

    Cons

    Overall I enjoyed my experience at State Farm. Despite my positive experience, I did not gain full exposure to the more than one many facets of business they operate in.

    Advice to Management

    I generally agree with the management strategy implemented at State Farm Insurance but I would suggest a more organized internship program with specifically detailed responsibilities and learning practices for entry level workers.

  2. I learnt a lot from this company, like marketing strategies and sales skills.

    Pros

    You get to work with a bunch of people that you get to know and become friends with. You get to learn from some of the best and gain experience through that.

    Cons

    Have to learn quickly and start to produce in order to have success in this field or you will fail.

    Pros

    Pros as a Systems employee(at Bloomington Corporate South)
    - A lot of room for growth, promotions, raises, bonuses.
    - Jeans and t-shirts are daily wear(even some managers wear things like sports team jerseys. Obviously you want to dress nice for important days.)
    - Many people "work to live" instead of the other way around
    - 2 weeks vacation, 3 weeks after 5(?)
    - PTO for dentist appointments and stuff like that
    - Paid sick days
    - From what people said benefits were "decent"
    - Work from home days
    - Flexible hours
    - Pretty good salary and get raises fairly quickly.
    - Can apply to different positions at different locations
    - Leadership training
    - Will pay for MBA

    Pros as an intern:
    - $18-20 as a Systems Analyst intern.
    - 2 paid days off
    - Paid housings
    - Can start 401k (also I've heard internships count as time at the company and helps with retirement)
    - Many seniors got competitive full time offers.
    - Currently able to pick which location you want to work full time(Atlanta, Bloomington, Dallas, Phoenix)
    - Get to do real programming
    - Can be kept busy and not bored as an intern depending on team

    Cons

    Cons as a Systems employee
    - Most jobs in Bloomington(a.k.a. cornfield U.S.A.)
    - Afraid of making people worried so they keep a lot in the dark (a good example is the "Dual pair metroplex", either people have no idea what it is, or they're worried that everything related to the datacenter is moving to Dallas.)
    - Want to move people to hubs, but don't help their spouses that also work there
    - Some technologies are old and no one really wants to do them.

    Cons as an intern
    - Other IT interns at large corporations can be paid more.
    - Don't have any idea what you're doing before you get there
    - Many teams are not prepared for intern because they aren't sure what they're getting so they don't know what type of work to have planned.
    - People who would be returning interns still don't know if they have an offer for next year.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to interns earlier in internships, at the end I had many directors and AVPs ask why no one had any meetings with them, because interns don't realize that we can reach out to them.

  11. Great Company!
