Venting is good, but a lot of venting is not good. I hope you all spend more time looking for new jobs than trying to find the best words to express your dissatisfaction here?
Has anyone else seen the Geico subreddit? There is corporate emails being sent company wide to help stop unionization efforts. Most of their people aren’t getting pay raises this year, and they are overhauling their 401k.
How many of you log off for the day and find it difficult to sleep from the stress of the job in operations? How many of you are taking sleep aids? How many of you have to self medicate to relax? How many of you are having difficulty with... — read more
What is your opinion? Someone mentioned here that claims work would be much easier if the team environment would go away. I only somewhat agree.
The great deception
Yes, many people are missing, we are very much understaffed. By not doing anything to fix the issue, the problem is deepening even more. I gave notice because I couldn't stand being overwhelmed with work for such a long time. Will SF finally... — read more
I have been working for SF 10 years and ended up moving to the Phoenix hub in Jan 2019 due a new job offer. I worked in SFPP prior before moving and wanted to see how it's going in my old department. I saw SF closed all of the LOC beginning of the... — read more
Getting laid off was the best thing that ever happened to my “career” on the farm.
Sorry but I'm really irritated. I definitely decided to leave State Farm, and the reason is the manager who, for some unknown reason (perhaps out of pure animosity), does everything to make my work difficult. This is already the billionth time that... — read more
Have job offers for that Claim Team Manager posting gone out yet?
I have read about age/racial discrimination, but what about pregnancy discrimination? Is this also common and have you or someone you know experienced it?

So where did you end up going ? Did you go to Country or Progressive? What things do you like better or worse then SF? Recruiters are contacting me on LinkedIn for opportunities, but are things that much better with these other companies?

So with the $1,500 claim bonus being paid out soon, what are peoples thoughts on more in the future? I think initially it was a short turn solution until people could be hired, the problem is so many people don’t stay in claims. The hubs outside of... — read more
Don't let them convince you that the grass isn't greener somewhere else. That's exactly what they've been doing lately. Ask anyone else though, ask those who worked here and left. Most of those who left would never think of coming back here again... — read more
Many people leave and it is crystal clear to us why. However, is it clear to those above? Because it seems to me that they think that this is almost a perfect workplace and that we should all be happy that we work here. When I gave my notice, my... — read more
Unfortunately, I hear more and more bad comments about SF. What do you think about the reputation of this company in the industry?
Talent continues to walk out the door. Even execs are leaving and pointing at senior execs and saying … bye
A federal judge has rejected State Farm’s attempt to dismiss a class action lawsuit alleging that the carrier “systematically discriminates” against Black agents. Seven current and former agents claim that State Farm’s “uniform set of firm-wide... — read more
This is such a stressful environment. I did the same job in another company, so now I can make a comparison. There is incomparably more stress here. No day goes by without some stressful situation. Is there anyone here who can relax (at least a... — read more
Hi I currently work at Allstate and have my final interview this week at statefarm. What are some cons and rumor about the company. Is it a good idea to jump the ship to come here. The role is in tech software engineering
There are many people here who complain that they work very hard and those who complain that they are not adequately rewarded for that effort. If you know that you will not be adequately rewarded for your work, then why are you still working... — read more
Its the staffing issues. One of the biggest issues the company is experiencing, which is causing side effect problems across the company. This is one of the unfortunate side effects. Some departments are so understaffed and in such a bad spot they... — read more
It is true what someone said that at SF they will do everything to make it impossible for good workers to get promoted. I am convinced of that and now I am looking for a new job. However, there is really no logic in the best employees generally... — read more
We finally got the news in Auto Underwriting we only have to come into the office 1-2 days a month effective July! My sister works over in claims and they are still forcing them into the office a week a month and everyone keeps getting COVID!... — read more
Everyone’s burnt out and the people who didn’t care before now care even less, leaving behind all their complex tasks so the people presented with a list of their out of goal will get it done! When will management stop being pi%#% and manage?!? — read more
I think that it is a part of State Farm culture, that managers complicate everything to such an extent that employees lose the will to work at all. Have you noticed that too? Why do the superiors have such a need to complicate things that could... — read more
How much overtime is required for the department and would you consider this a good starting position? I have 2 job offers on the table, and i'm trying to decide between the 2. The main benefit I see with state farm is working from home. Is there... — read more
It amazes me that the farm is now trying to write estimate from pictures. The body shops end up doing the work for our estimators in providing pictures while terrible estimates are being written. Geico and Progressive physically inspect every car and... — read more
You would think a company of this size would be able to keep family members from working with each other directly but I that would be expecting too much. Why is it okay for husbands and wives/ parents and children to work in the same dept, same... — read more

Time to go look for remote jobs out there! Grandpa Farm is not embracing it but many other companies are! Go get it folks!
If you are considering working at SF or are a current employee, go find a new job or do not even consider coming to work at SF. Over the last 5-6 years our current CEO-MT has completely fleeced the company of all of its claim experience. SF... — read more
I've quit. A lot of people are leaving, but given the working conditions here, isn't it surprising that even more people aren't leaving? At one point I thought the attrition would be much higher. The management has obviously been very lucky so... — read more
So the rumor is....there are going to be significant lay offs announced!
It is not my responsibility to fix the poor work of my coworker! The worst part is that my manager doesn’t think so, so I fix the coworker’s mistakes almost every day. Anyone else who has to deal with that? How do you handle all this? A colleague... — read more
The only thing they care about is agents. That’s it. Not customers, not employees. Just agents. The stark difference between the way they handled the company’s 100 year milestone for agents vs employees is a perfect example of this. Agents got... — read more
