Curious to hear from those in Wave 1: Was your job offer to do something drastically different than what you’re doing now? Was anyone asked to relocate? Any insight for Wave 2 people?

SF is a Total Loss incurring storage in a tow yard! As a consultant once said: you are all minions and claim scum. Don't worry folks, the hypocrisy from the angry punks will have their day. They all should be wearing orange in a jail cell for RICO... read more
State Farm does not accept alternate viewpoints. They have created a claim model that has doubled the workload, tripled the stress, and quadrupled the stupidity. Section managers were let go for speaking their mind about the horrible decisions made... read more
It looks like State Farm is getting ready to ramp back up the mutual funds line of business after a year-long hiatus. Makes sense in that the auto line continues to experience losses and the life line is suffering. What say you agents? Are you ready... read more
I've been at the Farm for over 5 years and have nothing to show for it. I'm so bored with my position that is not going anywhere, they give raises to the people who 💋 their @$$. The management is one of the most incompetent that I've ever had the... read more
some great locations!
I know of others who will retire if offered a position. It’s really sad. I guess this was one way to do it. Congrats to those who made it happen.
I heard we are using SalesForce? Does anyone work with it? Do the agents like it??? Who's idea was it to adopt it, and how well does it integrate into our existing technology? Most of all how much does it cost? Did we buy it outright or do we have a... read more
Due to many factors such as, multiple reorgs, outright lies about the fate of my department. No rhyme or reason for who gets cut and who stays. And finally no bonuses and very small raises, I am starting to look outside of SF. Did you know on average... read more
Tell me your story...is anyone happy? Daily stress is a beat down and get worse daily. What will happen once most of the tenured CS are gone?
Got lucky enough to get an offer but does anyone know which MVR they pull???
Interesting how State Farm was doing so well until management tried to "fix" the problem. It must have been an anticipated problem or maybe the problem was long term success. But they have "fixed" that problem. Once the company changed to our current... read more
I google "State Farm" and set the date to "last 1 hour" a lot at work on my phone. These guys are harsh http://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/171954652
Just read some of the comments about Staples . Not a pretty picture and since Fawad came from Staples, this can happen to us long after he is gone.
Yesterday my boss was talking about our competition and said "When you are number one in auto you have a big target on your back". Is that still true? I hear we have lost 110k+ auto policies in the last year. Are we still number one in auto? I feel... read more
So ... if given an assignment, and I decide to resign, do I just not show up on the 15th?
Just saw where not a single person losing their job in Tocoma will be relocating to Bloomington. Bet Pantagraph does not catch this one.
So, it looks like 11 percent of American workers fear layoffs within a year and 59 percent are confident of job security. It's sad that 100 percent of State Farm employees are nowadays in those 11 percent. But does anybody remembers what it was like... read more
Monday AM...dreading the thought of going to the farm, I dropped my gifted coffee mug. Cracked and broken...I took it as a sign. The farm is cracked and broken and I don't know if theirs enough gorilla glue to hold it together! The next month is sure... read more
So we get to find out how it’s going to work And what our fates are Good luck to all
29 postings in MyBlock today....one is even in Honolulu Hawaii !!!
Say it ain’t so? There goes another VP
What determined which departments were offered voluntary severance versus only involuntary? There's a significant difference between the two, up to a half years salary. In my department, it was only involuntary and for my location we couldn't opt... read more
I heard they had selected but didn't see any updates or email go out.
I left the farm last year after 30 years and had a bunch of neat old stuff from agents or had been given by people in the company. I tried to sell some of it this past winter and wondered why nothing sold until I found this forum. Good thing I didn't... read more
I see a lot of posts on this board saying that Java developers are needed in State Farm. I heard about an incident in ECRM where State Farm is loosing internal Java developers because they can't deal with the incompetence of the H1B Visa developers... read more
Looks like the trial date is set for the nearly 8 billion SF racketeering case, in US district court in Southern Il. SF better hope the recruiting and secret funneling of millions of dollars to the campaign of the IL supreme court justice, whom, by... read more
Since we have received the final opt-in/opt-out form that is due 6/25 I have another concern. For those of us that opted out, the QTD is 8/31. The form says that QTD can be either before or after that date, something to the effect of as long as it is... read more
A career expo Monday to begin filling 300 or more full time jobs in Bloomington. Openings include Claims, ET, Bank and L&D.
So they take a part of the bank that was functioning fairly smoothly for the past year or more, then tear it apart leaving basically no one who was there before and bringing in all new people who don't know anything about what is going on with this... read more
I knew things were bad for people over fifty, but it seems they are worse than I imagined. I guess my stress level over possibly being laid off just skyrocketed... read more
For those of us in Bloomington do we all remember Mr. Farrington and other senior leaders saying that personal flexibilty and mobility will be a key. Really? Only if you move yourself. Have you noticed most if not all the ET posting have “relocation... read more
some great locations around the country
Just heard there is a secret project to use Artificial Inteligence to replace majority of Initial Loss Representatives. Can anyone confirm?
Huge cost savings!
Why bothering giving bean counters more data.
