    I worked at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good. Most managers try to allow for work/life balance. Very supportive of diversity (again in most areas)

    Cons

    Need to play the corporate game. Politics runs rampant. If you are not one of the "golden employees" within 6 months, you will not go far.

    Advice to Management

    When you have more than 6 people complain about favoritism a manager is showing, get rid of the manager. Favoritism has no place in the workplace, if it causes friction

    Pros

    flexible work schedules, work from home option, good on sight dining options, lots of onsight extras - barber shop, fitness center, massage therapist, dry cleaning, nurse, pharmacy, etc

    Cons

    expected to work 10 to 12 hours a day regularly, managers are not well trained in diversity or HR laws, poor performers are frequently promoted over hard workers

    Advice to Management

    HR Training should be mandatory requirements for all managers, and managers should be in charge of HR matters or work delivery not both. Stop reducing the work force, regular RIFs kill morale

    Pros

    The company truly believes in giving back and advocates volunteering. It is nice to be somewhere that lets me feed my passion for giving back and represent my company as well. Benefits such as time off are much better than average and medical, 401K and pension are as good or better than other companies. The people I work with are fantastic and I have made lifelong friends through my employment.

    Cons

    The company salaries in my field are much lower than I can get at competitors and there are periodic layoffs. Job security can be a concern. Volume of workload is high and creates stress.

    Advice to Management

    Value your human resources and listen/implement things that feed the needs of the employees.

    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.
