    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.

    Great medical, pension plan good. Good work environment and opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    Not open to flex work schedule

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open to flex work when someone has daycare need or personal issue but will rearrange seduce to get the job done

    I worked at Allstate full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Continuing training from corporate on updated DOI news and company structure. You have constant support from corporate and management is helpful on helping you succeed. Brand recognition. The company name is well known if you sell P&C. Most independent agencies will sponsor your P&C test and exam materials and some may offer company benefits (Health, vision, 401k match, dental). Most agencies offer bonus plans at end of the year (if you hit your goal) and they offer salary and commission structure.

    Cons

    Working for an independent agency minimizes your growth and salary. Most agents may be trapped in the complacent work environment. No pay raise in 2 years.

    Pros

    Free parking and what not, pay was ok and decent, insurance discounts and what not and like such. Get one hour nap time.

    Cons

    Interview process was too long, pay needs to be more and better time off policy and stuff like that and such.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More pay and compensation and benefits and less hours. Less management and more free parking and advancement. Ok though otherwise.
