    I have been working at State Farm as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Other employees worked with were great and very helpful. Treated like a normal employee. Given very realistic preview of the normal office routine. Great support.

    Cons

    Not many. Kind of slow at times but that is to be expected. If your interested in a summer internship program, State Farm is a great place to look.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the program to keep younger employees with a lot of talent looking at the company for a career.

    I worked at State Farm as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The internship program in 2009 for college undergraduates was an amazing learning experience, I was a marketing intern in the SF Bay Area. They paid for our company cards, travel to the internship competition and opportunity to present for corporate. Great experience learning about marketing strategy and how interact with executives! Heavy recruiting for entry-level positions.

    Cons

    Entry-level positions were only in claims roles that were not well paid or suited to any other interests.

    I worked at State Farm as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly people, very nice place to work at. The agents there were all kind to me, and answered my questions whenever I had one about their job.

    Cons

    Ended up doing menial tasks for most of the time, though this was more on my fault anyone else's. Could've taken initiative more to take on more and more difficult tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really work with interns more and try to challenge them. If they don't meet your expectations, then give them something easier, but most interns should have strong abilities to achieve more than what you originally thing.

    I worked at State Farm as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    State Farm has a great work/life balance - from workplace events to the State Farm Park, etc. etc.
    Benefits and compensation are good, and there is a good corporate culture of valuing loyalty to the company.

    Cons

    If you're like me and like to be challenged and thrilled each day at work, this is not the place. Things move slowly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interns want to learn so use them! But don't just stick them w/paper pushing - that'll turn off your brilliant potentials because they'll want to seek out more exciting opportunities.
