    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

    The company culture is second to none. Everyone is so friendly and the intern program itself is a great way to network and learn.

    Cons

    Unless you are selected for their Leadership Development Program, they don't care too much about hiring their interns, even if they have outstanding reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in interns

    No advancement opportunities for administrative assistants only agents. Overtime is necessary multiple days throughout the week. Family life is sometimes left out because you work long hours.
