"My experience at State Farm was enjoyable and enhanced my knowledge and skill set."

What do you like about working at State Farm Insurance?

"I liked having the opportunity to learn and grow on the job at State Farm. The ability to learn and implement new technologies as a part of my work while creating meaningful documents and training content that enabled the smooth function of the very large, corporate IT division was enjoyable work. However, I desire relocation to the Nashville area to be closer to my father, who recently suffered a stroke."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"It is important to be knowledgeable in your field, friendly, personable, professional, articulate, and a fast, critical thinker in order to successfully interview with and gain employment at State Farm. Sharpening interview skills via careful preparation of documents and responses to detailed questions regarding qualifying skill sets is a great idea!"

What don't you like about working at State Farm Insurance?

"Vertical communication within State Farm is slow and overly congested. While this can be typical for large organizations (State Farm's corporate headquarters hosts more than 17,000 employees), the result is that simple requests and communiques can become lost or receive painfully slow responses that negatively impact work flow. This was my least favorite part about working at State Farm."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"State Farm management should simplify and ease internal, vertical communication by creating a strong, lateral communication structure that includes checks and balances that can enable workers to gain approvals and/or access as needed, without waiting for responses from far-removed colleagues who are higher up the command chain."

Claims Representative

What do you like about working at State Farm Insurance?

"State Farm conducts business with integrity and honesty, and values its employees during difficult economic times. Loyalty is rewarded, albeit slowly, and advancement and challenge can be found if sought with enough diligence."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Really consider whether the company is a good fit for your long-term goals. If security and stability are primary concerns then it may be a good fit, as State Farm is one of the most secure companies I have encountered. However, if you want to create something new, to affect change, to innovate, then another company would be a better fit."

What don't you like about working at State Farm Insurance?

"Whereas I have a good amount of control in my current role, the majority of employees comprising the claims workforce are over-managed, under-supported, misunderstood, and laden with policies set to manage the lowest common denominator employee. Efficiency rules the day, autonomy is dissipated, and professionalism has declined with the loss of inherent dignity in our claim roles."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Becoming a more agile responsive company is an admirable goal, but would be better served by infusing all layers of leadership with fresh employees from diverse backgrounds in the company. Simply retaining the same group of leaders and issuing new edicts does not equal change. Remember, this is the set of leaders who protected the status quo and led the company into stagnancy. Promotion of innovators, subversive thinkers, and creators is needed to supplement the old guard's experience, but cannot replace it. The company needs both groups working together. Easier said."
