People really should take a step back when it comes to RTO. You are getting upset over things that have not happened yet. Things are changing daily and until we know for sure I refuse to get upset. I have plenty of things to worry about as it is, I... — read more
their rules state when at your desk working you cannot wear a mask (for obvious reasons) but no matter how i ask or who i ask no one seems to answer this question. will seating arrangements be social distanced? its always the "we dont know yet"... — read more
How long do you think it will be before State Farm requires everyone to get the covid vaccine like all the other companies have come out requiring it?
Anyone know what will happen if one is madated to return to the office but refuses to wear a mask?
Years ago, I started a mutual fund account at SF. I moved to another, much better run competitor and finished my career there. Anyhow, we learned this week that SF was transferring the mutual funds to Northern Trust. Oddly, if you contact SF... — read more
Wow. What bout those layoffs that won’t be happening like Vivify to ET!!!! Why was that done again??? $$$ what’s the correlation??? What 3rd parties involved? We will just run folks off and give raises and big big raises and bonuses and roles... — read more
First of all, will they ever realize that most managers are absolutely unnecessary here because they do almost nothing?
I really liked the post where someone mentioned that the same problem with understaffing also happened in 2018. Yes, and only three years after that we are facing the same problem again. Is it possible that the company learned nothing from that... — read more
2 tenured VPs announced their retirement today. They get their packages and buy-outs first before the minions are run off! Maybe just a coincidence....maybe not. Time always tells the truth! More to come as promised!
They don't see that SF under urgently needs more people??? I am almost certain that the company will very quickly lose a lot of people, whom they probably do not want to lose, if they do not address the problem of understaffing. I'm on the verge of... — read more
I was terminated unjustly 1 year ago already. How do I know it was unjust? Because I won my unemployment appeal! Anyhow. It’s the best thing that’s happened to me. As I sit at my new job with better, cheaper benefits at a company who isn’t looking... — read more
How long should I keep posting on this site and complain about my job without taking action to better my life? Jobs are plentiful, all companies are begging for help. A qualified person can get a new job in about 4 weeks. If I'm in a job I hate... — read more
How low would you be willing to go with your pay to avoid RTO? I'm thinking of taking a remote job I was offered but the pay is nearly 40 percent lower than what I have now. In any normal circumstances I wouldn't even be considering this, but my... — read more
I am almost certain that the result of an anonymous survey on how much SF employees trust leadership would show that almost no one trusts them. There are many reasons for that. I stopped trusting them the moment my colleague who was one of the best... — read more
This could affect being forced to return to the office based on this line... “In many office jobs where the employee is not a direct service provider, attendance is not an essential qualification of the... — read more
Good work life balance. Lots of time off. Great boss. Anyone else? No I’m not being deceptive or sarcastic.
I really hate my job and I've been posting that on this website forever. I see all these help wanted signs everywhere. The grass MUST be better everywhere else. I deserve more money. I'm confused, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
I sometimes think that it has to do with me, that I no longer have the motivation to work, so that I am no longer a good employee who gives 110 percent of himself. Do you ever find yourself in a self-critical phase? Then, when I think about it a... — read more

I've never seen slido comments so targeted towards execs with employee dissatisfaction. We have a record year of growth and Tipsord get's $20 million as a bonus and employees get a less than normal merit. Rumors of another transition plan in the... — read more

Name one carrier that treats its employees well. I'm betting you can't. They are all basically the same. They are top-heavy, don't have any long-term vision, offer little to no transparency, and most importantly, treat their employees like cr-p... — read more
I didn't think this was how I would feel only three years after starting here, but here I am. Tired and disillusioned about the "great" job I landed. I was really excited when I started but it took SF less than a year to ki-l all the excitement in... — read more
I don't know of a company that particularly values the critical thinking of its employees, but I don't know a company in this industry that values critical feedback less than State Farm does. The company has been cultivating a “yes man” culture for... — read more
Here I saw someone encouraging people to go to GEICO. My colleague got an offer there, but in the end he went to another company. The reason is that he didn't think it was much better there. On the other hand, I am convinced that this company values... — read more
In one short sentence?
The Delta variant is taking over. Even vaccinated people r getting sick. Going into the office doesn’t make any medical sense when most employees can work from home. Last year proved that we can work remotely and meet the companies goals.
Just curious on how many people are just working until they make everyone go back in the office 5 days a month? Already moved away? I have talked to several people who say they are just going to quit instead of going back to that mess/traffic?
Does it still exist here at all?
I'm thinking of applying to state farm but just curious if the offices are open or is it work from home?
SF leadership is going to do what they want regardless of input from their employees. If you believe that, keep reading. If you don't, ignore this post. The key to being successful at SF is not necessarily agreeing with what they do rather it is... — read more

I am burned out and tired of the lack of staffing, unreasonable workloads & expectations, technology that doesn’t work and management through fear. This appears to be the Titanic with water rushing in on the lower decks. Good luck everyone.
What you all are not getting is that they are reducing their staff via attrition. Replacement workers have been temp workers. I'm sure they will start hiring to replace the record breaking turnover in all the lower end departments. It was no mistake... — read more
