    Pros

    Great Work/life balance. Good benefits. Great people. They listen to their employees and try to accommodate as much as possible. They really do care about their employees.

    Cons

    They layoff people almost every year. Promotions are kinda hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Keep showing your employees that you value them and their opinion.

    I worked at Allstate (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good working condition very favorable for women and mothers. They have their own mothers room for lactating mothers. flexible working hours. work from home for few days every week is allowed. very good day care in the campus

    Cons

    a lot of Information Technology work has been outsourced so there is a constant fear or layoff ... but if you work hard and make yourself useful to the company that fear is less.

    Advice to Management

    I had a very nice manager

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job allows you to learn various skill sets and get great exposure. The pay is decent and you have PTO available along with holidays off.

    Cons

    The work load is always being shifted because we can't hire new people at this time. Also, there is minimal flexibility with no option to work from home.

    Pros

    Good career development for employees and leaders. Flexible environment from an IT standpoint.

    Cons

    Difficult to navigate if you do not have a mentor or sponsor, but that is every company. Also leadership has been there for 25 plus years so sometimes it can be a challenge moving up.

    Pros

    The Leadership Development Program is a great way to gain experience at an accelerated pace. Over the past few years I have been able to lead teams, network with senior leaders and gain access to many opportunities that would be readily available to someone outside of the program. The program team is amazing and everyone has been extremely helpful and supportive.

    Cons

    The only issue is the commute if you choose to live in Chicago.

    Pros

    Great company, stable, competitive, different things to do each day, great leadership principles.

    Cons

    Hard to get promoted in a Region unless willing to move family. Depending on your manager - lack of flexibility. Lack of different teams working together for the same creative vision (silos).

    Advice to Management

    Provide more flexibility so you can keep talent.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    On the job training for what they expect. Good flexibility after 6 months, numerous ways to stay involved with the company. Great time off.

    Cons

    Too many internal mandatory processes. You are managing the completion of documentation. Too much leadership change & layoffs are every 2 - 3 years for at least the last 10 years. Expect to work some weekends based on need.

    Advice to Management

    Look into fixing internal tools that support the work we do. Not have them add additional time onto our days.
