It’s so much more than what you would typically think of from a corporate finance department.
I don't think you can be a Fortune 50 Company without being innovative, without being collaborative.
Welcome. Welcome. Welcome to Financial Operations.
Finance and accounting, I think it’s a universal language of business. And so I really see us being embedded to everything that’s going on in the organization.
We are looked to as a trusted advisor, as people who can help take financial data, turn it into a story and then enable decision making.
Every day, we’re looking to really think about the bigger, the broader, the long term.
There’s a lot of opportunity, a ton of different departments.
We’re responsible for paying all State Farm employees. We also pay all of our agents.
We do risk and compliance, we also do accounts payable, travel and expense.
There’s data analytics, there’s forward-looking projections, all kinds of opportunities that you wouldn’t think would be in a traditional financial operations department.
You can have so many different careers without leaving this organization, which is just incredible.
We have a culture that is very much about supporting one another.
State Farm never stops investing in you as an employee.
There’s a lot of exciting change going on. We are continuing to bring in people with diverse backgrounds and skill sets.
It’s very exciting, to feel good, really on a daily basis about the work that you’re putting out.
I think it’s pretty awesome to get to work in a space where you’re helping others and you’re really impacting major decisions.
It’s a really exciting time to be at State Farm.
