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

    Pros

    There are numerous opportunities to find challenge in your work. It can be quite stimulating and rewarding. There is often room to define your own expectations.

    Cons

    There are as many obstacles to performing well and seeking stimulation as there are opportunities. Clarity of expectations can lead to miscommunication issues and disappointment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If expectations are to perform at a high level (and they should be), then care should be taken to remove barriers. Careful consideration could be given to elements of high performing work environment.
