Yes, I agree with this phrase. Finding the courage within to leave an abuser vs. finding comfort of being abused.

Topics regarding layoffs at State Farm Insurance
People that actually work for the company in claims and estimatics know what the acronym is so no need to spell it out. More downsizing in estimatics is on the way.
While reading some Glass Door Reviews online, I saw an interesting post. A person got a CS PIP/MPC position with just a phone interview. SO SAD and FRUSTRATING! There are several CS positions available in the Dallas HUB that are hiring externally. In... read more
I left SF because of point system. Tell me more about it being removed. What replaces it?
So with the news that the points system is going to go away and the way they treat us being so horrible we should plan that on 11/17/18 to all call in. A walkout to show that we are so fed up with the direction of the company as a whole. We continue... read more
With the news that was dropped on us a few days ago, how many of you are all planning on sticking around until this hole closes? I don’t know if I can stand it here another day. August seems so far off.....
I wanted to pose these questions to M.T. via the "Ask the CEO" page, but knew I'd be fired if I had. I have ZERO doubt one of the many MT minions patrol this board, so, (via VPN proxy server because no way do I trust that there wouldn't be... read more
I know nothing big is happening but are stealth layoffs still taking place? Haven't seen many posts on it lately, so I'm hoping for the best.
So according to an email today, Auto ILR is so backed up that Fire ILR is now going to have to file Auto claims, including the new hires in Fire who have never been trained in auto claims. So much for Auto ILR.
True? False? Anyone?
I’ve been with State Farm over 25 years and filed a claim. Hold time averaged 15 minutes and the actual call 45 minutes. Coverage and benefits explain d incorrectly, and at one point my claim was denied, due to it being 30 days post loss. The process... read more
If you're a mutual policyholder, please reply "yay" or "nay" and then ask all other mutual policyholders to do the same. The more votes we can aggregate here the better.
I’ve never seen so many people voice their opinions as I’ve seen in the “Ask the CEO” post. If leadership doesn’t make changes based off this feedback then they are beyond loss and this company will fail. Keep giving feedback and making your voice... read more
What did you hear about 2019 budget?
Our current as campaign with Aaron Rodgers is another indicator of why our company is in a downward spiral.. As usual, our leaders can't make the right call on key decisions making our company once again look inept and incapable compared to our... read more
I heard the budget is a disaster, I would expect and plan according to significant benefit reductions, I remember when it was all about the budget and unit count, now its like we are throwing dice. It obvious we have the wrong people in leadership... read more
A lot of good people will leave tomorrow. Most of them I’ve known longer then my own kids. I wish them the best in retirement or in seeking a new job. Thank you for the memories
Unexpectedly I've ended up on short term disability for the last couple weeks that I was supposed to be working at State Farm up until my qtd date. I missed their layoff workshop so I'm wondering if anyone else who has been laid off can tell me when... read more
Lack of insight and resistance to change of a type that is so omni present. Instead engineering their way out of this current crisis they choose the easiest way which is to jettison personnel. They are doing this without a deep understanding of the... read more
State Farm's mockery of insurtech, AI and bots is backfiring big time! To me, as a former employee, this just exposes State Farm for who they really are: an old and crusty company, set in their ways, and resistant to new technology. They sound like... read more
Anybody having anything to do with the system outage we have had for the last three days.
I’m just kidding, I’m glad I’m no longer there.

This is becoming unbearable.
The economy is moving to a manufacturing economy. Heck a truck driver makes more than management at SF. SF is no longer a career. It's a forigen country sweat shop call center.
For the last 8 or nine months, since I've been pursuing this site, I've noticed one troll in particular who kept using the phrase "sore losers and sour grapes" to describe the visitors here. I thought it was an odd figure of speech to come up so... read more
A little birdie told me that current state farm CAs and CSs are blackballed from being hired at other insurance companies, namely Progressive. This is specifically in the Atlanta area, not sure about any other areas. Any idea WHY? Flies away
WARN filed for 269 workers, last day will be 10/31/2018. This is in Tacoma.
OK, here is something from the heart... and soul... A number of colleagues and I were hired back in the Zone days to share our industry financial sales experience to share with Agents and their Team Members to help them transition from P&C sales to... read more
I know this isn't exactly breaking news, given that it was announced earlier but it’s a sad reminder of how things are done at SF these days. I don’t see anyone with any common sense in them buying this story about flexible real estate strategies and... read more
How much is your marketing budget? Your commercials are worse than progressive.
I am not an employee, I am just curious. Did G.J. Mecherle family lost control of state farm?
Do you think that there is a correlation between the content of this topic and the need for a divorce attorney to advertise so boldly on this page?
Word came down today that P&C claims has a new hiring plan. From now on 75% of new hires will be external and 25% internal. The 75% won’t even be open to internals applying. Of course this excludes management. Another nail in the coffin of a once... read more
I am sure we have all heard management say: "It's all about me, take care of yourself, and it is a business decision." Whenever people hear these things they lose faith in humanity because when each person is out for themselves, we have people going... read more
All this pontificating on what will happen to sf is bologna. It won’t be the tip of the sword or any of his legitimate or illigitimate kids or even the ghost of gj mecherle running the company into the ground. When Pritzker is elected and he raises... read more
If these layoffs are cost effective and technology allows us to do more with less, my question is why are my premiums going up with no claims? 😎
