    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

    Pros

    This company has an incredible work/life balance. You work 8 or 9 hours/day including lunch and when you leave, you don't take work home with you. You can also work from home at times if deemed appropriate by your manager.

    Cons

    The pay is not as great as some other companies, but the benefits are truly incredible. Great insurance coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You're really turning this company around to be amazing!

    Pros

    A great place to learn the business. Has some of the best products on the market can compete with anybody.

    Cons

    You can only change your economics if you become an owner. Somebody tell you sell more policies that's how you get more money. But the truth is becoming owner sell more policies and get that residual income.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a number one producer hold on to their hard to find.

    Pros

    A lot of support from co workers and management. The understand the need for work/life balance. They invest a ton into the employees well being.

    Cons

    Surprised that they are so far behind when it comes to technology. A lot of their applications are dated. But, they are even making strides her there have been a lot of updates and more to come.

    Advice to Management

    None really, just please keep investing in technology it makes such a difference. Work will be done much more efficiently.

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

    Pros

    I work in the Litigation Services department of Allstate Insurance Company. The benefits they offer are amazing! The amount of PTO offered to new employees is more than many companies offer to a 20 year employee. As a 14 year employee, I currently have 31 days per year of PTO; When I started in 2000, I received 19 days of PTO my first full year. Salaries are competitive and if you are a high performer, the opportunity to grow and move up through the ranks is quite good! I started as a legal administrative assistant almost 15 years ago and have been promoted to new positions 3 times.

    Cons

    During the past three years, our health insurance benefits have changed dramatically. The only health plan choices involve a minimum of $1000 deductible before benefits are paid at 80%.

    Advice to Management

    I love where Allstate is going and how it's evolved over the past 15 years. My only suggestion to the company is to continue to performance manage those employees who continuously fail to perform to make room for the top performing leaders we must continue to hire!
