    I have been working at Allstate full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They provide great opportunities for professional development and networking. Decent inter-company mobility if you're looking for a change of pace. And great benefits and wonderful on-site conveniences like a pharmacy, doctors office, fitness center, dry cleaning, barber shop, nail salon, Starbucks AND Red Mango.

    Cons

    I have experienced a fair amount of frustration due to conflicting leadership styles and frequent reorganization within departments. The only constant at Allstate is change! Haha

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership and individual contributors "get it." It's the middle mangers that need to be supportive of our initiatives and inclusive diversity.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Customer care is really first and center in the companies outlook, I always felt good about selling someone a policy. They also have a very solid training program that will teach you to sell insurance. The marketing/ overall support from cooperate was outstanding.

    Cons

    You're working for a huge national company in a very conservative industry, so the workplace is stilted and the energy (at my agency, anyways) was very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the sales competitions coming- they really helped boost momentum!
