If you have children, have a back up plan. Their time off/sick leave is not forgiving.

State Farm is very fair and seeks to promote the most talented employee/leader. As a woman, I've felt very fortunate to have been given opportunities while others have supported and believed in me.

Yes, only if you’re looking for a new career. State Farm is a great place to get your foot in the door for insurance.

Some roles are unfairly seen as more valuable even though they require less responsibility.

Underwriter II- Contact Center

Operations

If you are interested in leadership, they are pretty fair with promoting women. Maternity leave is 6-8 weeks depending on the type of birth. Flexibility of work/life balance depends on your department.

    Contact centers are worse for flexibility. You have a little more flexibility in production and a lot more in analyst/systems positions.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    8 paid / 4 unpaid

    Number of weeks paid depends on the type of birth. Natural: 6 wks, C-section: 8 wks

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Depends if you want flexibility and you are not pregnant and what department you are in. Wouldn't recommend for work/life balance or if you want extended maternity leave over 6-8 weeks.

If you have a BA or higher degree and don't mind playing office politics you can probably get somewhere in this company esp if you are a minority.

    they talk about flexibility and how important family is, but emergencies can count against you and you can't give 24-hour notice for an urgent situation.

    badge in and out of everything except the toilet and that still requires signing in/out of the phone and computer system.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. benefits can be good, but not very flexible for families

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

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

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    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.
