"Networking and relationships are the to key to advancement within a department and movement into others. Insurance education is a must. Personal development is important but is limited to those who are successful in their current role and have been identified as high potential. Having strong relationships and likability will create opportunities faster that exceeding expectations. One needs only to meet the basic expectations in their current role and demonstrate the desire and ability to do more to receive opportunities. Mobility is essential for advancement. "

"It's a corporation, no perks to lower-rung associates. Gender wise the management is diverse (lots of females) but seem to be out of touch with those they supervisor. Maternity leave is handled as a disability (typical unfortunately) so it is not a negative to take the leave. It is a negative to be out ill for any reason in my department. I've noticed plenty of women who are penalized by management for being absent for caring for sick children."

"This is not a family oriented company. Work/Life balance is talked about but does not exist. You will be given a hard time to leave when your child is sick.

"I've worked here over 3 years, and though I've seen women enter lower management, I'd say mid-level and upper-level management are predominantly men. Unfortunately, I believe that maternity leave is paid for up to 2 months, and you're "safe" for another month (but it's unpaid) - according to friends who have been on recent mat leave."

"Generally, State Farm is a solid, stable employer offering good pay and benefits. Women are prominent in leadership, including executive. In my own career path I haven't seen any preferential treatment toward men and have numerous times gotten promotions and better bonuses than men in my area. The scheduling and time off policies vary drastically by department and are not at all family-friendly in the call centers. Mandatory overtime, time off blackout dates, inability to trade schedules and other issues have created a lot of frustrated employees. Paid maternity leave is capped at 6 weeks across the board."

"I have worked here for just over 3 years, in two different departments. From what I have seen so far, women are treated equally as men. There seems to be an even spread of male and female in middle and upper management. Although, I haven't had to take maternity leave, the amount of time allowed is generous."

"I've been with this company for 10 years. They like to pride themselves on their diversity and worklife/family balance however realistically they are all about the bottom line. Hours and benefits seem reasonable when hired and it is only after you sign the employment contract you are made to understand that weekly overtime is mandatory. It is not uncommon to work until 11:00 PM (get yourself a live in babysitter if you have small children) however your leadership does not. Mid and upper level management is overwhelmingly male while employee percentage is overwhelmingly female. Addressing any grievances is little more than lip service and anyone who doesn't agree with their male dominated metrics driven management style is labeled a "non-team player" and is ushered to the door. This is an appropriate place to work if you are uninterested in a family or social life or career advancement. Its a great stopgap but not a great place to grow."

"I have worked here for almost 11 years total. I manage an agency and maintain high sales (usually up to $10K OVER my quota for the month) and also do all the marketing and training of new hires. I currently make $35K a year and receive 3% commission. I also only have two weeks vacation after 11 years. Maternity leave has never been discussed and neither has a raise in vacation time or salary. State Farm corporate is a decent company I'm sure but working for agents is a nightmare and corporate could care less."

"It's still an old boys club environment, regardless of the current restructuring which is eliminating many jobs for both old boys and women. My leadership team is male dominated, lacking diversity. Very few people advance from my department - male or female. It's known as a place where old claims employees go to die. Several women have accepted lower level positions to leave the department. Men have successfully applied for lateral positions in other departments and have advanced from there."

"You can work from home once a week. If you have to change the work from home day for personal reasons, managers are very flexible and understanding. This is a relationship-based organization with employee's respect towards their family life. People will understand any adjustments you need for your family. It is noticeable that the organization has a very high portion of women employees and people say it is because they can work and still raise their children with ease. There are also enough number of paid personal time off, sick days, vacation days, and limitless doctor days."

"In the past this has been a very solid company with great benefits and opportunity for advancement. Recently State Farm has taken on a new management style and for now it is not being handled well. Production and "efficiency" drives are creating a cut throat environment, and eliminating the pride in customer service that brought meaning to our careers in years past. For 2015/2016, I would stay away. Here's hoping this Company will recover, as it used to be a great place to work."
