Not worth it... They dropped from #1 to #11 think about that
Personal Lines Auto Underwriter (Current Employee) –  Richardson, TXNovember 16, 2015
Morale is low because of the benefits, they give you sick time but don't want you to use it, and team managers think they are dictators of the world. Upper management on the other hand are better than the lower management. They make you jump through hoops to get an interview within the company. They give you candy for doing a good job instead of some real money and they work on the favorites system where only your managers favorites get a descent raise. The pension is not worth it because you can't afford to put anything in it because the pay is low and the insurance is high and they use this as a selling point. They also treat you like a little kid in that you can't talk during focus or quiet time.
Pros
Stability, pension
Cons
sick time, vacation time, pay

stable job with fair compensation
Auto Underwriter (Current Employee) –  Bakersfield, CASeptember 6, 2015
Stable job. Day to day job function can be monotonous. Not a lot of room for creativity. Management takes a long time to implement suggested changes.

Underwriting Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Monroe, LAAugust 8, 2015
I found a career while working at State Farm. Everything about my time at State Farm was positive; until the company closed our regional office in Monroe, LA. I advanced from a data entry clerk making $25K a year to Sr. Underwriting Teal Leader making $48k a year. I was able to obtain numerous insurance designations and get my P & C license while working there. The culture was excellent and pay and advancement opportunities great!

Great Company
Underwriter (Former Employee) –  Dunwoody, GAJune 16, 2015
State Farm has been a wonderful experience, with several learning opportunities.I feel there could have been better communication between management and employees. They have great benefits. Very different bonus structure then, other companies. The company had the worst training structure, they need to revamp the training across the board.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
They have the worst training structure for employees

A job position can give you two different views on the company
Business Auto Underwriter (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMay 9, 2015
upper management has small interaction with associates. The hardest part about work is to understand managed chaos. They do try to have activities to celebrate achievements and holidays.

Great place to work to learn industry knowledge
Commercial Lines Underwriting Specialist (Current Employee) –  Dunwoody, GAMay 6, 2015
You learn a lot about the industry and there are great resources you can use to learn more about how to do your job as well as other job functions. Management is great and will help you as much as they can. Advancement is hard as they would rather bring in other people for a higher job than promote others from within.

Great Company, low pay
Auto Underwriter (Current Employee) –  Dunwoody, GAFebruary 9, 2015
Good stable company to work for, only if you can deal with being paid almost $20K less than other companies with the same position. Advancement is possible if you play the cards right with the correct people. Nothing is truly written, everything changes based on the person. The company has a motivational plan-Get you in, get you pumped up about promotions and then keep you in the position you are in by coming up with excuses about why you ideally need to stay put. Experiences vary based on position offered.
Pros

Decent place to start
Underwriter (Current Employee) –  Tempe, AZJanuary 30, 2015
Job is fairly easy. Depends on the type of insurance you are working, ex. auto or fire. Co-workers are good, except for the usual suck-ups. Good luck advancing unless you are one of the chosen by your manager.

assisting agents and staff with questions regarding their clients insurance policies.

the hardest part of the job and the most challenging and one I enjoyed the most was taking the very upset caller and turning them into a very satisfied and happy customer.
