Controlled Communication

So the lapdog media here in Bloomington is parroting the line that the numbers of workers here is not changing. Basically they are saying nothing to see here, move along. This looks like a lot a people are going out the door. And considering how... read more


As a remote worker, I do not live in BLM, but I did check out the Pantaraph and saw the article that basically said State Farm was committed to keeping the same number of employees in Bloomington. Do not believe it. The company is clearly -- very... read more

VIVIFY - the next silver-bullet.... ;-D

Our 500 person Funtion in Systems was told today, we need to cut 225. Voluntary separation packages will be offered until 3/31/18, after that the involuntary package will be 50% of the voluntary package... "The consultants" (i think Delloite this... read more

Managers making decisions have no idea what they're doing

I work in Systems. As far as I can see, the last 6 years have been nothing but chaos. And what truly terrifies me is the idea that the managers making the decisions have no idea what they're doing and truly no idea how to measure whether their ideas... read more

ISD Debacle

Leadership in the systems area has been unhinged for the last 6 or 7 years, ever since the banking system crashed and they decided to pull their investments out of the market and dump them into revitalizing it's IT department. As far as I can tell... read more

State Farm Office Closings

What offices are to be or have been closed by State Farm? Is this affecting agents? There is a lot of confusion in the media, please help me clarify.

It's too bad

State Farm is relying too much on outside advice from consultants and it will cause this company to lose more customers than ever, and it may not ever recover from it. It's really unfortunate that employees are not valued any longer. This is a very... read more


We heard and were told in Jacksonville, FL that we had up to 5 years. As everyone clapped you could or should have read between the lines. Up to? We are still under constant review and people are jumping ship. They cant retain employees. If the... read more

Glad to have left that God Awful State Farm

Wow. I guess parting ways 14 years ago from those State Farm @$$ho!e$$ was a good thing for me. Also, it appears things at that place got progressively worse. I left behind nepotism, bigotry, and a host of other unmentionables. Looks like those... read more

I was with State Farm for 24 years.

There was no path to advancement outside (or inside) of claims without being UNCONDITIONALLY MOBILE. People got tiny little promotions and had to move all the way across the country. They are not ASKING MORE from their employees. They are treating... read more

Been there, done that.

It happened to me. My entire office was closed. Service from SF is now as bad and slow as any small companies. However, the premiums are still as high. If they would stop paying the top dogs 🐶 so much, their loss wouldn't be so large. Worked there... read more

Not so fast

The press release I read from internal State Farm mentioned technological advances which are fulfilling the jobs people used to do. Nothing to do with loosing 7 Billion dollars. State Farm is a 87 Billion Dollar industry! I love working for State... read more

A Failing Farm

I've worked for the Farm for a long time but I quit last year. The company is being run into the ground. My old office closing blindsided my buddies who still work there. State farm played their employees for fools. The metrics, making us request... read more

Glad I got out while I did

I left SF in Concordville, Pa in July 2011 and all I can say is, from reading these posts and talking to my friends that are still there, I'm glad I left when I did. I saw the writing on the wall and saw through all the Team Manager BS of "things are... read more


I was laid off last Friday. I am not bitter and I was ready to move on. State Farm took good care of me, I was given 12 months of severance payments and I was paid 5 months of vacation. If you compare this to what most other companies do nowadays... read more


I just severed on April 28 after over 30 years. I'm old enough to take early retirement. I'll need another job but I simply could not face the call center atmosphere that even complex BI/suit claims are plugged into! I don't want to live at a hub. I... read more

Abandon the ship

I worked in State Farm for 20 years before i decided to leave (better say I was pushed out). Although it wasn't easy, this was a best decision I ever made. It's hard to say when this company turned from amazing place to work to a total nightmare, but... read more

Ruining 90 years of a great reputation

I have worked for the company for 28 years and the last 2 have been impossible. Constant unnecessary changes, total micro management and second guessing any and every decision you make on a claim. Anyone who can retire is getting out and quick. It... read more

Heard on the News, but not told at work

just heard this morning on the news that State Farm Bloomington is laying off 35 employees...wanted 54 originally. They probably forced them out. oh but they say they still going to keep corporate in Bloomington. Maybe the building. The thing is that... read more

I have worked for SF for 32 years

I have worked for SF for 32 years and have never been treated so badly then I have been since the company implemented our Express teams. They hire these young people pay them 1/2 of what I make and are trying to force me out of my job, I have always... read more

Field offices closing by 2018

In 2013 SF announced a five-year reorganization. Basically they are consolidating most of the employees into three hubs, and the Bloomington office. Another 22 offices will remain open, but I would anticipate that they will be phased out. There are... read more

Richardson, TX - Regional Center Layoffs 2016

I hear that we might have some kind of reorganization in early 2016 and that some folks in Richardson may lose jobs. You never know what will happen but at the same time a ton of weird things are happening, senior folks shifting positions and for... read more
