Great benifits / Long Work hours
Commercial Lines / Fleet Underwriting Specialist (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAFebruary 7, 2018
The benefits were great but to complete all your work you would need to work a lot of OT to keep up with the workload. It provides you with a really nice pay but if you have children, like myself, you start finding yourself losing those moments with your children.
Pros
Benifits, Pay, Bonus
Cons

Underwriter (Current Employee) –  Richardson, TXNovember 2, 2017
A typical day is spent in a faced past environment. State Farm has a strong culture and trains the employee adequately for each role. The only downside is that they pay lower salaries than the competition.

Credit Union Underwriter (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZSeptember 28, 2017
State Farm is a good company once you get in the right department under the right management or team but most departments are overworked and understaffed. The company whole has a high turn over rate/ They provide good benefits if you can over look everything else.

Great Company to work for, would stay if the department I'm currently in wasn't downsizing. Great staff and hours are great. State Farm is great at training and making everyone feel welcomed.

The job was great, management - not so much.
PERSONAL LINES FIRE UNDERWRITER (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZSeptember 18, 2017
The focus is entirely on the numbers. Don't get caught up in thinking that integrity exists. You are expendable!
Management must respond to the orders from above and they no longer have the job security to "do the right thing". If they speak out or question decisions, they will become expendable. You are the sum of your productivity, period.

State Farm is a place where you can expect to have a position as long as you comply and merge into the culture of the company. The benefits package is desirable. Most positions are desk jobs and it's difficult to move up the chain if you don't have connections or lineage within the company.

Overall, a good place to work.
Underwriter (Former Employee) –  Charlottesville, VASeptember 12, 2017
Company culture is changing. I was always treated with respect, but I question the security of jobs in certain locations. If you're mobile, it's a great place to work.

Good place to be a Company Man/Woman
Commercial Lines Underwriter (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 4, 2017
A typical day at work is a day to day grind. I learned a lot about how the Auto Insurance Industry works from a Claims and Underwriting perspective. Management is friendly and willing to help.
Pros
There are plenty of opportunities to build good social and professional relationships.
Cons
It can be a rat-race environment where everything is based on scripts, charts, and scores.

Too stressful and employees no longer matter...
Personal Lines Fire Underwriter (Former Employee) –  Dallas County, TXAugust 31, 2017
Working at State Farm has provided me with great perks and benefits; however, it was too stressful and production oriented... My role was reduced to a single area and I was miserable... Between the commute, job, managers, agents, etc. I became exhausted and worn out over 10+ years. It impacted my health so a change was inevitable.
Pros
Benefits and perks
Cons
Everything else...

Enjoyed my career at State Farm
Underwriter (Former Employee) –  DuPont, WAAugust 24, 2017
A typical day at State Farm ,reviewing claims and if needed policyholder motor vehicle records to see if we needed to cancel policy due to claim and conviction frequency. Next review new business applications which entailed MVR, prior insurance, accident records and credit report review to assure the applicant met company guidelines for insurance. A team meeting to set goals for the day and answer calls from agents and staff regard underwriting questions. Work with underwriter assistants, answer any question they may have.
Pros
Great company to work for.
Cons
Demand to much overtime.

Poor morale
UNDERWRITER SERVICE ASST (Current Employee) –  Richardson, TXAugust 21, 2017
They lure you in with all this hoopla about what a great company they are and how they are there for you. Not! They expect you to do a ton of work for very little money. The pay is not competitive and they don't appreciate their employees.

Poor work life balance, micro management
Underwriter (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 4, 2017
Did not enjoy my experience working in Business Lines Dept. You had absolutely no control of your schedule and it often times changed without sufficient notice. Sometimes you would end up with a shift working until 7 or 8pm. The job description was false and misleading as it does not state that you would be working in a call center. In addition you are micromanaged, your every move is monitored, and you are told what time to take your breaks, lunch breaks, etc. It is also difficult to get time off...especially holidays.
Pros
Pay, Benefits
Cons
Micromanagement, hard to take time off, traffic, company culture

High production environment.Manages every minute of your time. Very stressful trying to keep up with production quota and produce quality work. Once you get comfortable in one position you can quickly be moved to another.

Underwriting Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MOMay 3, 2017
Good company with long history. Historically took care of employees, but has since become more corporate in practice and care of the people who work there. I still have friends who work there, but don't feel it is the same.
