    Pros

    Real-world business application Competitive hiring process Hands-on work Interns are treated like they are full-time employees instead of just being there to staple papers

    Cons

    Overall, the experience was nothing but beneficial for me. I learned in-depth about the business and developed as a professional.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide interns with the opportunity to work on real projects. The accountability is important for development of employees.

    Pros

    Easy to learn. Great office experience for those coming into the workforce. Great Hours.

    Cons

    Low-Pay with No Benefits. Not-Challenging. Poor Career Opportunities. Not consistent in terms of work follow.

    Advice to Management

    Look at helping employees out with benefits...a company the size of Allstate, can afford to buy into much more affordable health insurance packages. It shouldn't be left up to the agency owners to look at small company plans, that are through the damn roof.

    Pros

    They have just implemented a program termed "Continuous Improvement". The IDEA is great. The call center I am employed in located in Idaho is growing fast. Pay rates are rather competitive, position is very challenging. The site leader and Division Managers truly do what they can to enable a work and personal life balance for the employees.

    Cons

    As the site grows, the environment is quickly becoming like a standard call center, or like it is " factory run". It is losing the happiness and positivity in the work place that was once such a positive driving force. The overall outlook of employees is turning negative and the attitudes are changing tremendously. Schedules are tough and continuously changing. This makes it very tough to set schedules or plan activities with families, especially if you have school aged children wanting to participate in extra curricular activities. It is next to impossible to obtain two days off together to plan any overnight or camping/traveling trips with family. Requirements and metrics are extremely tough and becoming the focus, as opposed to employees and customer satisfaction. All seems to be focusing on the almighty dollar. It is a sad change to witness. Layoffs are taking place due to outsourcing and IT jobs are thinning from within.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to focusing on the customers and employees. Money will follow in suite. Find lower health and medical benefits that are not taking over 1/2 the employees payroll. Offer higher wages if metrics are going to be held at such a stringent level. Stress levels are increasing for employees and causing a major turnover and negative environment to grow.
