    I have been working at Allstate full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work/Life is best in the industry. People are in general very happy at Allstate. Many employer sponsored events. Summer hours will generally be very flexible. Holidays and benefits are better than I have seen at many other companies. Allstate is a favorite of people with families and soon to be moms.

    Cons

    Management really tries to create opportunities for further advancement but there are times when there are none. If in an situation, your team/department is going through organizational changes, there is a big possibility you might have to quickly move on/out or you could either be put in somewhere or will have to leave. Very rarely does this happen though.

    Pros

    Very trustworthy company. Great people work here. Good pay and benefits. Cares about its stakeholders, customers and employees.

    Cons

    Fairly conservative culture. Could greatly benefit from updating their technology....hard to move a big ship swiftly and effectively when technology drives the decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in technology. Don't just improve upon what you have.

    I have been working at Allstate

    Pros

    Excellent hours for parents, typical 9 to 5 with no weekend work. I love the office setting and customer interaction.

    Cons

    The pay could be better for the amount of work that needs to be done daily. Data entry can become redundant with so many record keeping applicaTions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the suggestions from the employees who have the most contact with customers. We know what they want.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Vacation days are incredible- 5 weeks PTO minimum; Vested pension; Matching 401k; peaceful easy feeling at work; employees are incredibly friendly and nice. Family comes first so therefore plenty of telecommuting allowed or flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive at all; Bonuses and merit increases aren't very good either; plenty of horizontal opportunities to apply for and encouraged but limited vertical growth and opportunity. People tend to have a lot of meetings where they constantly babble. Words speak louder than action. Everything is theoretical, nothing practical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rebuild your leadership program and allow fresh blood to engage and become a part of the next generation. Increase compensation so that talent, especially from the city, will be attracted to make the trek up to Northbrook.

    Pros

    Has a solid business representation in all activities.

    Cons

    IT has a very complex organization and different IT teams contradict each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at simplifying the IT structure so there are either less groups or so that the goals between groups are in-sync.
