Enjoyed working with co-workers the most. Great environment
Data Text Operator (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – September 24, 2018
Enjoyed working for the company, and loved the people I worked with. My co-workers were like family to me. Culture was fast-paced, competitive, but relaxing at times. There were a few challenges along the way, but worked through them with my team.

appreciated my immediate supervisors and team members. Had a generous tuition reimbursement program. Good employees throughout local office. Were very sorry when our local office closed down departments and is in process of moving out of the area.

Employees are over worked and understaffed. Management views your every move under a microscope and tends to micromanage you. The Job would be manageable if the company provided enough staffing for the amount of work they expect to be completed.

Since the new CEO took over the company it has really become a terrible place to work.
Employees who have worked for the company for 5 or more years were provided with paid vacation days and paid sick leave. The company has now converted to paid time off which is incurred based on time worked. Also employees are on strict schedules that makes it difficult to even get up and go to the restroom if it is needed.
Since the company has decided to close all of the offices and go to 3 main hubs they have started "letting go" of most of their seasoned employees for any possible reason they can find. Since some states are considered "at will" the company doesn't really need a reason to let them go.
Workers' Compensation Claims Specialist (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – May 6, 2018
The job security in the last few years went down. My job was out- sourced by Sedgwick. Too many lay offs to feel secure within the enterprise. Eager to find something new that will I will feel value in working for a better company.

Unfortunately, the company is relocating to accommodate the 24hour customer needs and the employees are suffering because of it. Offices are being closed and relocated in many different areas of the United States causing great employees with lots of experience to either retire early, or leave the company altogether. It is not the company it used to be, but they still offer a lot more benefits than most companies.

State Farm was one of my best careers, unfortunately I had to leave and relocate for personal reasons. But I loved working for Auto Claims. they kept is very fun and professional while doing work for customers.
Workers' Compensation Claim Representative (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – November 8, 2017
I worked for State Farm for five years in Bakersfield, CA. I was a claims rep and supervisor in Auto, eventually moved into Workers Comp for California. As a supervisor I was working from 7am-7pm Monday-Saturday and sometimes Sundays. The amount of stress the company puts on you is insane especially for the pay. Once in Workers Comp things were even more terrible, having over double the approved amount of work load there was absolutely no chance of the time off promised.
Auto Claims Specialist (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – October 5, 2017
Unfortunately with the change of CEO, the once family oriented atmosphere that everyone loved is now gone. The overall direction of the company has changed to numbers driven which in my opinion has taken the company downhill. They have lost number very driven, professional and experienced people. You are left with a company full of inexperienced people with a high turnover rate.

A great place. I worked for State Farm Insurance for 30 years. I retired after 30 years with much success and happiness.. The company offers flexible hours to help with family needs. Great benefits and compensation.
