Customer Service (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: healthcare, company wide incentives

Working in Custoemr Service can be a challenge over the phone. Policy Holders call in to discuss issues and also get help to problems that there agent can't assists with. One of the hardest part is the time on the job and lenth of the breaks. Poor planning and some mangement not up to standards.

Good place to work
Data Architect (Current Employee), Bloomington, ILJanuary 13, 2015
Great place to work. Advancing into management is a questionable process. Pace is dependent on where you work. Some areas are chock full of projects others not so much. External consultants have it easy here. Many idling and billing consultants as every area is not very good at projecting workload. Good technical co-workers. Hardest part of the job is approval by committee and paper work for processes

Very Productive, Great Benefits
Telemarketing Sales Representative (Current Employee), Edinburg, TXJanuary 12, 2015
Pros: chance to earn a license and grow in the company
It is an extraordinary part time job, especially for students. You have your personal space, and your own desk. The job consists of calling customers and convincing them to say yes to our offer, so we could transfer them to the sales representatives above us, and they will take care of the rest. The management is great, their constructive criticism makes us improve on our Job so we could reach our goal. The co-workers are team members and are very helpful. Sometimes The hardest part of the job would be convincing the customers to say "yes", and the most enjoyable part of the job would be when your representative tells you that was a good call after you transfer it.

Not what it's cracked up to be - stear clear away
terrible place to work (Current Employee), Bloomington, ILJanuary 12, 2015
Pros: retirement
Cons: stop watch for breaks, health insurance sucks, the real workers do not get acknowledged, management is all the same.
If you are a big suck up and back stabber - this place is for you. If you suck up enough you might get somewhere because it isn't about the work you do. If you stand up for yourself you can forget ever getting a promotion. They love to play favorites and you can forget about anything being fair. Be care ful of the downsizing going on - they are cutting jobs and no one knows it most of the time. They will scrutinize spending the money on sticky notes in the copy room but spend ridiculous money on other things for their execs and management. I am looking for a new job. Stressful doesn't begin to describe it.

Good Job
Customer Service Representative at the Call Center (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 12, 2015
A Typical day for me at State Farm would start off by me getting to work, saying Good morning to everyone as I enter. I would then go down to the Call Center where My desk space is at. I would receive my calling list from my supervisor and get straight to work. I learned how to answer the phone and a tone in which you should talk to people that is respectable. I learned how to deal with callers who did not want to be called. I learned how to get a point across as to why State Farm would be the better choice for the client. My Co-Workers were very friendly and caring, we would all be helping each other when needed. The hardest part of the job was reaching the goal. Many people do not want to be called and it is hard to get them to listen to you if that is the case. There were many times where I had a couple of full pages where no one would even pick up the phone or listen to what I was offering. The most enjoyable part of the job was the environment, it was very friendly and laughter everywhere.

Great Company to Invest your Talents
Quote and Bind Sales Representative (Current Employee), Richardson, TXJanuary 12, 2015
Pros: great company to work for. great income potential as a part-time job
Cons: great position for people who only need part-time income
My typical day at work includes coming into a laid back atmosphere where the dress code is be comfortable but dress for Your day. Meaning your day could be non customer facing casual or meetings in business attire. More often casual. I answer calls to assist insurance agents outside of their normal business hours. It is an inbound customer service/sales call center environment, however, the call volume very manageable. The management team is encouraging helpful and has been trained to help you meet your goals with great leadership abilities and healthy boundaries. The hardest part of my job was learning the systems, and processes. Once learned, I really cannot say the job difficult. My peers and co-workers have diverse backgrounds, skills sets and age groups.

State Farm has never had a lay-off and has a great amount of very seasoned employees. There is a lot of pride in working for such a long standing strong company. However, the company has gone through restructuring and many of the changes are creating a new company feel.

Very little room for movement within the company. Pay structure is mediocre. Health benefits are average and is one of the few companies that offers a pension in conjunction with 401k. Unfortunately 401k match is very small.
