Glad you left-we are better for it. Now go away.
When I used to work at State Farm, it was the kind of company that would have given away free cookies to the employees based in Bloomington to celebrate the 100th anniversary, but would have completely ignored the employees based elsewhere in the company.
I always hated how the employees based outside of Bloomington were treated like second class citizens. I have yet to work at another company that treats the corporate office employees so much better than the employees in the field. The Bloomington centric nature of State Farm’s culture is one of its oddest traits.
I will always be amazed that such a relatively small and minor town like Bloomington could have such an air of superiority about it. My office was located in a much larger metro area, yet the Bloomington people always regarded us as being some sort of country bumpkins compared to them.
At least I live and work somewhere where there are other employment opportunities besides State Farm and the local culture and economy don’t revolve around State Farm. I would never want to live in a de facto company town like Bloomington basically is.
If it makes you feel better, Our dept didn't get cookies, and I never got my cheap company branded backpack.
It is fabulous being an elite. Now get back to work I have a golf game to get to.
Good to see the elites are out there but they only see unicorns.
Hahahahahahaha. U b funny.
State Farm never used to be the way it is today. They had to back off being in favor of indoctrinating K thru 3rd grade. It amazes me the have zero common sense anymore. Things will change in the next 6 months. The workers and the "kids" are beginning to realize what a shame leadership has become. They have played and doubled down on their losing hand. Sit back, be calm and quiet. Be confident what comes around goes around......cookie crumbs vs a 24 million bonus. Watch...
SF is good at urinating on your leg while telling you it's raining. They're way of keeping the promise. Put that in a fortune cookie.
And there goes the fortune cookies…
Beware of people who make fun or laugh at others. Beware of people who want to silence anyone because of a differing opinion. Beware of people who shout you down. They hide behind the canopy of inclusion. Questions are always safe. Then those same individuals wonder why the weak ones they should be inclusive to go off the deep end.
@syk SF showing off their true colors with their hostile working environment.
Did anybody else notice the frosting? I mean, like some of it was lilly white! How racist was that?
And some of the cookies were hard! People without teeth can't eat them!
I grew up unable to afford cookies! It was elitist to offer them!
Some people work from home and were unable to participate at all!
Why can't SF just do the right thing for all of us that are accustomed to getting participation trophies!!!!!
Well, that would be SPI that they would not have or be legally able to use. Pay the cookies forward, and peace to you.
Really stupid OP post.
Be non inclusive to diabetic folks, but please do be inclusive paying for LGBTQ books and parties at agency outings. Hypocrisy.
SF could use their great inclusion and give the diabetic and alternative. OR they could have asked everyone before they handed them out if they had any diet concerns like we do when we have guests over. It's ok though, just tell them to take their cookies and shove em.
You could always gift the cookies to someone who can enjoy them. Peace.......
Too bad. We don’t include that kind of diversity here.
