So, everything here is true but I have to keep my name out due to the situation still ongoing. As of the Wave 1 IT Trans in ET, they rewrote all job descriptions to say co-location onsite with your teams is an "essential job function" that cannot be... read more
Been with the company over 40 years and witnessed all of nanagement’s brilliant ideas. Hey, let’s give all the employees different states to handle where they’re unfamiliar with the plaintiff attorneys and medical facilities. Oh and let’s give them... read more

The pension is over funded to the tune of $4 billion. It’s not going anywhere or being frozen. It’s literally costing SF nothing for the foreseeable future. This sounds a bit too good to be true, especially right now when the situation here is as bad... read more
Sad to say points were lifted today but there were no cheers. Employees have nothing left. This comes after we have lost so many great employees to other companies. Its to little to late. And it leaves us wondering just how bad the replacement policy... read more
I went to email a colleague today. I received the dreaded Outlook notice indicating she is no longer with the company. Just like that, without as much as a notice, a great employee gone. She was a leader, smart, tons of designations, degrees, and... read more

Does the State Farm pension plan have a COLA?
Tipsord’s recent executive briefing included his assessment of State Farm’s “”different promise” to employees versus the “broken promise” many employees actually feel. State Farm offers no promise at all which is precisely what it’s employees now... read more

After reading multiple threads on the site, it seems apparent that there is widespread manipulation of the numbers and data Just so people can make their huddle boards and spreadsheets look good. We know that is ALL our leadership cares about. Is... read more
The trend across these threads regarding EOM and the metrics-obsessed world of "future state" seem consistent; the company has put numbers on a huddle board above actual/real customer service. For example, we have been asked in my department to... read more
Has anyone under 55 and recently severed (within 2 years) been offered a lump sum buyout on their pension? I know of offers to employees severed 10+ years ago but I have not heard of any recently. I think changes in laws as well as changes in... read more
I don't work at State Farm but the way they went about this is leaving a bad taste in their policy holders. I know a lot of people who are dropping their insurance and going to a different insurer. I also wonder what the turn over in employees will... read more
Saw this on the web, and it is very true and very applicable to our current situation at the Farm. “When things go bad, good people leave, eventually followed by people who thought they could change things but got buried because too many good people... read more

The best thing that ever happen to me was getting laided off at State Farm. Enjoyed the time off stress free from such a toxic environment. Now I'm at Country companies making close to my pay and loving it. The environment is so different, the main... read more
Hey guys, always say you are going to work for a competitor the last day you want to work. Your leadership will walk you out and give you 2 weeks of pay for not working. This is a nice way State Farm starts your new chapter in life.
One of our metrics that is supposed to be zero would be sending assignments for a staffestimator to look at a drivable vehicle. Even though it may be allowed in a certain area, we are supposed to list that car as not drivable so it doesn’t show up on... read more
So, we are just a few days away from QTD 07/31/18. 20+ years here. I'm going to miss all the wonderful people I've met and worked with. I never saw this coming. I wanted to retire here. Going to miss my friends and extended family :(
