Every Agency is different. Ask individual agents about their operation, do not assume they are same.

Consider the area and geographical location. Ask questions about the immediate manager/leader before making a decision.

    The IT department has great flexibility for the most part. Again depends on upper leadership. Some other departments offer very little flexibility.

    This was in the mid-90's. I'm unsure what the policy is currently.

    We're recent empty nesters and want to move from the area (central Illinois). I'm unsure if, or when, this might occur.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Depends on the location and the area/position.

State Farm really supports employee development and if you are willing to put in the time and energy to develop yourself, have a positive attitude, and are open to change you can experience great advancement here.

    Flexibility depends on your role and your department. Customer facing departments are less flexible than back-office departments; front-line is less flexible than second or third.

    Short term disability kicks in after 5 consecutive PTO days and covers 100% of pay for 6-8 weeks. Additional PTO can be taken after STD up to 12 weeks total time off.

That they are specific agents and each agent is different, but the agent I very briefly worked for was blatantly sexist, showed favoritism, and there was no maternity leave.

I have heard that certain departments operated more like a good ol' boys' club, while in contrast my department consisted mostly of women. Again, it is such a large company that your experience will depend largely on your team / department.

    I did not feel that I fit in with the culture, so I pursued other opportunities. I am not sure they could have done anything about that.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It depends on your goals, and it depends on the location / team you're on. I've seen women represented well at all levels of management. Many women I worked with have been with the company for their entire careers, and it seemed family-friendly. You can rise quickly within the ranks if you fit well with the culture, are willing to move all over the country, and you become one of the "favorites" - otherwise, it's an okay place to work for a while and then move on. Starting out, the pay is noticeably lower than equivalent positions at competing companies, but this may improve over time/ with promotions if you're willing to play the long game. The "tipping point" seemed to be 5 years, after which point most people choose to stay for the rest of their careers.
