    Freundliche Firma ehrgeiziges Team. Besser geht es nicht. Man bekommt alles was man möchte und noch mehr ich könnte da wieder arbeiten.

    Negative Prognose
    Keine Meinung zu Geschäftsführer

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei State Farm gearbeitet

    Pros

    (At the time)

    Fair pay and predictable bonus structure
    They were pretty good at covering travel expenses and paying them back quickly
    Diverse workforce & diversity initiatives
    Fun and funny coworkers
    Opportunities for growth
    Again, this was all four years ago and has likely changed

    Kontras

    (At the time and now, according to other comments)

    Arrogant to a fault
    Total lack of innovation & willingness to innovate
    Odd attachment to the company's past (which prevents progress)
    High number of veterans (20+ years) who are determined to get that retirement money, and therefore, are resistant to change and technology
    Heavy reliance on command and control management style
    Poor decision-making that leads to losses of all kinds

    Rat an das Management

    When I was first hired to State Farm back in 2010, I felt truly blessed and fortunate. I felt I had found my work "home," and that I would be able to learn and grow over time, and watch my career develop. And guess what? It did. I held three different positions at State Farm, each "better" than the last in terms of challenge, growth, and pay. I used to brag to others about State Farm and actively try to recruit them. I was a true believer and evangelist.

    State Farm was like an abusive relationship in that, there were times when things were good! Really good! And then, there were those bad times...

    Even though my career was progressing, I was met at every level with some of the most hateful, spiteful, narcissistic leadership you could ever imagine. Egomaniacs and control freaks of the highest order. It was almost like they didn't want us to succeed, for fear that we may take their jobs someday. The behaviors got so bad that I even told one of my managers, "There's no amount of money in this world that could get me to do your job. You all seem miserable." This was toward the end of our relationship, of course. In each role, my managers found something, anything they could to harp on, and once I fixed that, something new would pop up to "fix." It was a moving target. They never taught, they only scolded. They treated employees of every age like children, from age 21 to age 61. It was disgraceful.

    Others took the time to focus on my personality. My work product was excellent and above standard according to one, but they always shifted the focus to my "happiness." "Are you happy? You don't seem happy. Others are worried that you're not happy. Are you happy? Your happiness, or lack thereof, is affecting the team." When I'd ask clarifying questions like, "What makes you think I'm not happy?" "How is it affecting the team?" "Describe a time when you distinctly thought I wasn't happy..." they couldn't do it. Never could. It morphed into vague generalizations and hearsay (made up stuff). They could never give me actionable specifics, and therefore, I could never correct the "problems."

    At the time, I did not realize that I was witnessing the beginning of the end. Everything that happened to me was symptomatic of a company preparing to enter into decline. Instead of leadership banding together and figuring out how to fix it, they chose to eat their babies. And they're paying for it dearly now.

    The second part of this title is to trust your gut, and this is where I'll speak to current employees: When I quit State Farm, people thought I was crazy. I had a great title and pay. I had climbed through the ranks relatively quickly. The path was clear, but I wasn't willing to fight off psychopaths along the way. So I trusted my belief that I could do better for myself, and I did. You don't deserve poor treatment from anyone, and especially not your employer. Sometimes you have to vote with your feet. Although you will be brainwashed, threatened, and intimidated, State Farm is not the end all be all. There is life outside of SF. There are other industries. Regardless of what you do, you have picked up some valuable skills that are highly transferable in the marketplace. Don't give up on yourself. Start saving money and get out of there. You will survive and you will be better for it.

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent benefits, stable financially, opportunities to be promoted and relocate, supports employee development

    Kontras

    Culture of "treating employees like family" has eroded. Recent leadership changes have triggered a lack of transparency in terms of company vision.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, solid financial company

    Kontras

    The company has changed over the past several years. They used to be very focused on family and employee work life balance. Although the benefits are good, you can't really enjoy them much. They like doing more with less! Morale is at an all time low and good employees are leaving in droves.

    When you take care of your employees, your employees will take care of you!

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei State Farm gearbeitet (Weniger als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    It's a less professional environment than the corporate office. More friendly and casual, with direct contact with our customers.

    Kontras

    No health insurance, dental insurance or vision insurance. No 401k. No union. There's no consistency among agents when it comes to commission structures, plus they can randomly change the "rules" leading to unpleasant surprises when you open your paycheck. Unless you want to become an agent, there are no opportunities for advancement. You simply slave away to earn commission for the agent who's name is on the door...until they find someone who can produce more than you can.

    Rat an das Management

    It's too bad Sales Leaders or Agency Field Specialists cannot be more involved and invested in the agency staff.

    Pros

    The people are the heartbeat of State Farm. For the most part, they genuinely care about what they do, aren't looking out for just themselves, and have an interest in helping others. Benefits & bonus are decent and discussions are happening to make them more competitive with other organizations.

    Kontras

    It's a challenge to get things done quickly. Lots of politics in some departments, and some departments are adapting faster than others.

    Rat an das Management

    Continue to react and truly hear what the employees are telling you. Things are changing, but speed is important.
