has your manager brought up at a team meeting that they would not suggest posting on this board?
Topics regarding layoffs at State Farm Insurance
what do you think
How long can the get away with ageism?
Is anyone happy or are the only happy people trolls?
Is the company offering relocations for jobs opening in other areas of the county and is it worth it to move?
Is anyone happy at work & if so why? All I am is depressed.....
Can someone clarify what is going on with the pension?
Underutilized 401K. many of the people I talk with do not actively put in money into the 401k to make sure they get the company max match. this adds up really fast. the company s---s, but this is a good deal.
Pension - clarification. With all the posts, what is really going on with the pension?
Are other insurance companies checking out this website? Maybe it's time to jump ship
Will things ever get better, or will SF just become a thing of the past? Maybe they will sell us off to the Chinese.
Things must be good as not a lot of new posts. I would only look at this site from outside of work as they track everything.
Please read "State Farm and Long Term Disability Insurance - BUYER BEWARE!" posted on this site and pass it around. Thanks for your time in reading this post.
State Farm commercials are worse than Allstate, Farmers, and Progressive.
State Farm always a TS like they gave you something! They never gave you a single penny! You earned it so just beware of the nice guy Kool aid they serve you when in actuality they gave you nothing. Like prior posts have mentioned, it is no longer a... read more
From reading a lot of posts here and glassdoor reviews it seems like State Farm might be one of the worst workplaces in the country. I'm thinking of nominating it for this years worst places to work news article. What do you guys think?
I purchased Long Term Disability Insurance with CIGNA (LINA) for about 25 years prior to making a claim. The insurance was offered through my employer State Farm. CIGNA covered 2 years of my disability (after the 6 month wait), however now they are... read more
Company leaders have been hinting some announcement with changes to benefits. We are supposed to hear something end of this week. Also heard big big changes coming to underwriting next week.
Wonder why State Farm has lost its edge? It all goes back to values. Money, metrics, good ol boy syndrome, and selfishness leads to destructive results. When intermediate management sells something they don't believe in, the system is due to fail. My... read more
After retiring from State Farm with over 30 plus years, I feel obligated to put my two cents in this. If you are still at State Farm, please be forewarned: Trust absolutely no one at all levels. During my career, I always thought VPA's, VPO's, Claim... read more
I waited months to get a big nothing burger. They did some lip service to us so they can keep us til their ready to drop the hammer on proximity estimators. When J.S said SS was the BEST option for customers that says it all.
I was laid off several months ago. I'm wondering if anyone has as well? In the QTD resources there was a section about whether or not you could cash out your pension with a link to the benefit resource center that would show you what your current... read more
Little Johnny very much wanted a bicycle, and his parents agreed to give him one, but only after he earned it by doing chores around the house for several months. Johnny was very eager to get started, and he held up his end of the bargain through no... read more
How long can we keep losing market share until executives realize these initiatives are failing?
Why does everyone hate it so much? It's not that bad.... Also why all the hate for tipsord? He's addressing problems that someone had to. Get over it.
State Farm is no longer a class act nor a first class respectable career. It has created a fast food environment while trying to sell elegant dining. They have forgotten about their internal customer and have developed an "all about me" environment... read more
Does anyone know if it's possible for the board to vote him out since we're a mutual company? I think we all know (including his own directors) that it's long overdue but we just need to know how to make it happen as quickly as possible. Any advice... read more
Have no info. I’m just surprised that some time has gone by and I haven’t witnessed any layoffs at my location and haven’t heard of any. This board seems to be lacking information on actual layoffs occurring recently. Is it possible that the time of... read more
As title states, as a mutual company...it is owned by the Policyholders. Not stockholders. Not board members. For those that are current policyholders at the time of next election meeting, how many votes would there need to be in order to over-ride... read more
Long Term State Farm employees were living in a bubble. It isn't how the corporate world works. I don't like it...you don't like it....but it is what it is! Complaining here thinking someone is listening is foolish. I'm sure they are monitoring this... read more
Companies becoming so dictatorial it’s disgusting actually. Now they’re restricting agents from putting cell phones on business cards and not allowing agents or team members to send texts from anything but SFConnect for business. Is that even legal... read more
This platform is atrocious. It simply does not work for what we do here at State Farm. How many millions of dollars did we spend on this garbage? I’m in agency and it is obvious this ECRM debacle was not tested for what we do in the agents office... read more
Any other office out there besides Florida and Texas is management making you “skew” the numbers? Everyday, we come in, there is a new email.. don’t touch this... don’t touch that... you cant do your calendars... do not complete a same day task... read more
This year the message from auto company management in Corporate seems to be, "employees have always been important". If correct, why were 13,000 employees let go last year? Why are 6 offices closing on August 31, 2019? Which is it? Do employees... read more
Well, it appears the SFB plane is taxiing down to the runway. I had a friend reach out regarding a contract to oversee the M&A activity on a bank. The description of deposits and loan portfolios as well as some other nuggets describe SFB to a T... read more
Heard from a friend who is still stuck in the hell that is Systems that The Farm is learning a hard lesson about dumping thousands of experienced staff in favor of a bunch of snot-nosed think-they-know-everything millennial wannabes.
Just found Business Lines is going through an approved transition plan with severance approved for those impacted. Basically they looked at some territories and eliminated some where they decided they had too many or they no longer wanted a Business... read more
what has happened to accountability? we have people completing 10 tasks by 12 or 1 and instead of something being addressed with those staff, their work is being assigned to others in the team. the atmosphere is toxic and those that do really work... read more
Has work started drying up all over the country for proximity appraisers? In my area people are fighting for work and management is pushing proximity to do v supp. Which is just setting us up to be offered an in house position in one of the hubs or... read more
