    I have been working at State Farm part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The BENEFITS ! A lension, PTO from the day you start a very understanding family oriented company.

    Cons

    Never sign up for part-time if you have full time financial commitments. They say you can move up to full-time once you understand your job. But then when you hit the floor it is upsetting..

    I worked at State Farm full-time

    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

    Cons

    (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
