    I worked at State Farm full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is not a lot of time consuming meetings. Flexible in giving days off when required. Respectful to employees.

    Cons

    Not a lot of team related activities. Employees barely get to know each other. Not a lot of variety in day-to-day duties. Training needs to be improved.

    Advice to Management

    There is little in the way of communication with employees on what is being done accurately, where there needs to be improvement. Leaves employees guessing about where they stand vis-a-vis their work performance.
