Heads up. All management was out on notice 2 weeks ago. State Farm has essentially initiated the FANG metric systems for divisions and employees. (This is coming to other Fortune 500 companies too, so you really can’t run from this new corporate... — read more
Feel free to drop a funny/stupid quote you’ve heard from a SF TM over the years. Have fun… go!
I’ve heard that competitors generally give better pay and a better environment. So people are not exaggerating, the conditions are really better and it is really worth starting from the beginning? Once I made such a mistake when I moved here... — read more
Thoughts on when the next layoffs round will take place?
A small monthly fee for representation, better benefits, and and most of all a better work environment is a small price to pay. It’s time.
Did anyone notice the deafening silence of SF plan to keep employees safe in the so called hybrid return to office? A website with rules is not even adequate. Just pretend it isn’t happening and maybe employees won’t notice when they get Covid and... — read more
I was hired in the 80's, at a time when it was tough to find a job. If you landed a job with a company like SF you grabbed on with both hands. I had every intention to make SF a career, and most of us felt that way back then. The job was never... — read more
If you are in a LOC… no way you will get promoted. If you are in a TWA or LDA you are only taking advantage of. They will use you until the day they decide they don’t need you.
I think someone posted it before but I'm amazed at how many leaders I work with that are still drinking the Kool Aid.... State Farm keeps abusing and abusing people, day and night, hoping employees, especially leaders, buy into the propaganda. They... — read more
I want to leave Claims and transfer into a completely department like ASR. Can anyone share insight on what it’s like there? Are they as stressed and squeezed as we are? This is not the company I used to enjoy working for.
Everyone knows that you should always have everything recorded, but people relax and forget about it, until they get into the situation I got into. If I had everything recorded, this would not be a very difficult period for me now. So now I just came... — read more
Anybody else seen the parallels or make the connection yet? No personal accountability on those so-called “shared claims.” Lazy incompetent adjusters barely move a claim forward and let the person behind them deal with it. Re-work up the a$$ for... — read more
So during huddle today in injury, my TM stated SF will be revising the ranges and pay next year. Does anyone know if this is claims specific or SF in general ?
I used to work at SF in SFPP from 2015 - 2019 until moving out of state for another opportunity. 2 weeks after I made the announcement I'm leaving, I found out, i received the promotion to an Analyst role in SFPP, which was the role I wanted for the... — read more
I am pondering.... is anyone else in SF land receiving false accusations about performance?
I better see a good raise, a better than last year bonus and an extra something first quarter of 2022. I know I am replaceable, I am just a number. I will find another job… actively looking and focusing on myself. SF CEO is very well taken care off... — read more
Clearly something smells at the farm
Every single claims employee is getting played for fools! Bend over!!!! They are never going to stop the madness as they do not see people as a resource but only as a human resource expense to the company. I spoke with someone in upper leadership... — read more
The verbal abuse is out of control in claims. It is stressful for the employee and their colleagues and their families. HR used to be involved in these situations, but they no longer get involved. The sad part is it is not necessary. Most employees... — read more
Competition between employees can be good for productivity. I don’t think there is any more healthy competitiveness at SF however. Increasingly, I am witnessing conflicts and latent animosity among my colleagues. I don't justify it, but I understand... — read more
Well well well…another proven leader (not) retires with the big parachute. Reality is tough, proven that you cannot make an agency person or a CPA a banker. Where were the brains of this company when we made this decision to be in banking. Someone... — read more
I don't believe it will ever be as good as it used to be when I first started working here. Back then, one could still feel dignified working here. Now this is a completely different company. I'm counting the days until retirement, but for the sake... — read more
How long until Biden plan gets enacted here.
Returning for five days a month for now. When will it be 4 weeks a month? You know they want us all under their watchful eyes.
You know this company is a joke when you see all the wrong people getting promoted. Took me sometime but I learned how to play the game. Once you realize that not caring and finding ways to make it look like your doing something when your not is the... — read more
Word on the street is WFH ends early November.
Where do employees go to address any employee issue? When can we talk to our first line leaders about any issue we may have? Better yet, what can they do for us if all they do all day is run reports to satisfy the never ending thirst for data the... — read more
I can no longer believe that this used to be a good place to work. I know that there is no ideal company, but here it seems to me that no one is satisfied with their job and this company anymore? Maybe just the ones at the top? Even my manager looks... — read more
Word to the wise! Unless you have 20+ years I would leave State Farm NOW!!! Start over somewhere else while the job market is great! Get out of insurance! Some of the current forecasts for our current staffing problems do not go away for at least... — read more
With the bulk of INJ CA New Mail tasks going to CS starting next week, get ready for some R3markable claim handling. Apparently CS weren’t that busy and CAs are just “operational waste?”
It didn’t happen to me personally, but my colleague was exposed to verbal abuse by the manager almost every day. No one is paid enough to endure verbal abuse, but that person is still at SF just because the bills have to be paid. I hope that he... — read more
All claim’s people don’t log in for one day… virtual walk out. Are they going to fire us all? They need to understand we are humans.
I'm happy that so many are landing in situations better than this one. Let's be honest, at this point, it's hard to find something that wouldn't be better than State Farm. In addition, more people leavening voluntarily hopefully means fewer layoffs... — read more
So Complex Property was just told they will have up to 3 months of mandatory overtime because our executives were incapable of foreseeing that our customers would start driving their cars again or the impact adding nearly 2 million new policies would... — read more
I apologize that this topic is not about layoffs directly. _ Talking to one customer prompted me to think a little about SF competitive capability today. Does it seem to you that SF is increasingly losing competitiveness? If this company loses... — read more
I guess this is the place to call out how incompetent this company really is. Instead of it being a job you go in do your job and get rewarded for doing so it has turn into doggy dog world. Snitch on your co worker to get points. Managers that... — read more
Where can I go where I don’t get punished for other peoples mistakes and the management to employee ratio isn’t 5 to 1? A place where there is no rage a Holic overlord pinheads and hemorrhoids that act like Neanderthals or detective wiggles. — read more
It was really depressing while I was thinking about all the bad moves made by those at the top, about the reasons why they micromanage, why they devalue people and overwhelm them with work so much. Ever since I stopped caring and just do the bare... — read more
