I've been with SF for 28 years and going to retire in 4 more. I have a business outside of SF so that gets me to 55 and I will be done! Great now that I can take my medical and delay taking my pension. We are starting to get a lot of the new hires... — read more
I’m still much better off here than at my previous company, but I’m already thinking about leaving. The original job description and what I am actually doing here are very different. I do a lot of things that weren’t part of the job description at... — read more
For those in denial--this is copied from thelayoff.com Allstate Insurance earlier today. Sound familiar? No, it's not fun. But it's insane to pretend that it's a State Farm problem and to deny it's an everywhere thing. It's time for transparency The... — read more
It is sad that employees have the same complaints year after year. I can only conclude that State Farm did not intend, nor does it intend to improve anything here. I wish I wasn't right and if there is any issue from 6-7 years back that has been... — read more
Management only cares about their income. Did they invest any effort in retaining good employees? If they did, I didn't notice it. Do they care about the future of this company? Unfortunately, I don't think they care about that at all. — read more
So had a blast at the agency convention but thought it was a little too much and somewhat in poor taste with everything that is going on! Great to see friends, Ed and Garth! One thing that was very obvious was that MT is completely checked out and... — read more
American Express business model is same as SF.....it will cost when exposed.
Celebrating 100 years with some amazing cookies. Thank you SF! Only problem is that I am diabetic.
Out of control……I left this inferno awhile back but have a few friends still trying to hold to their job…..auto bi rep….wow……inventories are 400-500 on the good side……run away train…lawsuits thru the roof….sf insureds getting sued..and if you look... — read more
Does anyone know what sf is doing with this new income portfolio they are starting ? It cant be good
There is a lot of truth in the posts I read here, but some also exaggerate a bit. Those who think things will get worse here usually give no argument as to why they think so. What are your arguments?
I just discovered this page and I've been reading through the posts. I can say I agree with 90 percent of what's been written here. State Farm has a highly toxic culture that is employee unfriendly. Merit means almost nothing, in part due to rampant... — read more
Today, audio company iHeartMedia and insurance company State Farm announced a partnership to launch iHeartLand on Roblox. State Farm will have exclusive naming rights to an arena in iHeart’s virtual world. The announcement is tied to State Farm’s... — read more
Selling more policies year over year while letting the staff dwindle seems to be a blatant breach of the contract, the promise to service the customer when life doesn’t go right. It’s as simple as that!
Time to go look for remote jobs out there! Grandpa Farm is not embracing it but many other companies are! Go get it folks!
I've been here for a little over six years. For me, this is the worst year at SF so far. How about you? I thought 2022 would be much better.
State Farm is not my dream job, but let’s just say I don’t complain about the amount of work I have to do. Yes, I work a lot, but I like my job, so it's not particularly difficult for me. There are many here who say they are overworked, but that is... — read more
100 year celebration gift for the red headed stepchildren- aka remote. 45 cents worth of cookies!
I was recently contacted by a recruiter to become an agent. I found this site doing my research and due diligence. Wow, I didn’t expect this many workers at State Farm this upset! In todays environment would you become an agent?
Today was the best day at SF in a long time! My jaw dropped when MT rolled out ED! (Almost like when Obama rolled out Clinton to save his presidency) Holy sh-t! For all the new folks that is what an actual real SF CEO looks, acts, and sounds... — read more
As work just keeps being added and as management proves that they don’t give a rat's a-s about us being overworked and burned out, I was wondering what would happen if I just refused to do all the extra work and just kept doing my usual amount at a... — read more
I guess it's not equally toxic in all departments. Everyone complains about the unhealthy atmosphere but everyone in part contributes to making this place even more toxic. Rarely does anyone try to make this a nicer work environment. What do you... — read more
I hope that it will not happen but I think that recession will be very hard to avoid. Some of my colleagues are already saying that there could be significant cuts. I’ve been here for six years and I’d love to look for another job, but I’m unsure... — read more
There is less and less space for talented and competent employees here at State Farm. It's been very noticeable for some time now but why is it so? I don’t know the reason, but I know for sure that it doesn’t lead to a bright future for this... — read more
What'd be the first thing that you'd chane as a CEO?
At least in my case it is. I am increasingly struggling to get done the overwhelming workload, although I have enough experience in my job. For now, it seems to me that there is no chance that the workload will become smaller? I would love to leave... — read more
I cancelled my SF insurance a long time ago...but definitely would know if I hadn't. Be sure to tell the agent why when you do! State Farm, since 2017, has eliminated almost 17,000 jobs. They used deceptive and illegal practices to force older... — read more
I've seen decent people join State Farm, and after a year, they're unrecognizable. It could be that State Farm brings out the worst in people or something else entirely, but most who work here morph into hateful, toxic individuals not long after they... — read more

State Farm is becoming a place where everyone who is capable and has knowledge is undesirable. The consequences of replacing experienced employees with mediocrities that cost less are already starting to be seen and will become even more obvious... — read more
What did everyone think? I would be sh-tting myself if I was in Personal Lines Auto Underwriting and the automation! I like Tipsy's comment about this is for the "long term" good of the organization and for our growth plans. You f-ckers have about... — read more
I would most like that not to be the case, but I think I would have the same problems with most other companies in this industry. For a while I was actively looking for a new job but I stayed here for the reason that I didn't find much better... — read more

Today American Idol came to Bloomington/Normal to do a story on the "hometown" of one of the top 3 finalists. State Farm was not invited to the party. Many other local businesses were featured. Rivian was part of the parade! Heard the State Farm... — read more
I started SF in June 1985. I never got promoted as I truly believed and still believe the service SF promises to deliver is done by the claim specialists who day in and day out. The claim specialists are the heart and backbone of State Farm. My... — read more
You have watched over time as a once great company morphed into something unrecognizable and I can't even imagine how that feels. I've been here for five years and I only know the bad, which makes it easier in a way. Those who have known the good... — read more
My colleague got a new job after only a few weeks of job hunting. If I were making decisions around here, I would try to keep an employee like him in all possible ways. How did State Farm try to keep him? Not through healthy motivation, but through... — read more

The load is getting bigger, and I'm getting paid almost the same as when I had much less to do. They should either reduce the workload or give us a adequate pay for all the extra work, because otherwise, who will stay here if elsewhere they can be... — read more
