    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.

    I worked at Allstate part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was decent starting out, some great co-workers, and regular hours.

    Cons

    Inconsistent treatment, promised a pay raise after receipt of license which was not granted, and received negative treatment any time a doctor's appointment was needed or emergency. Please keep in mind this was for an Allstate Agency not Allstate Corporate.

    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

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance is very impressive. Recognition Events are hosted quite frequently. Very friendly atmosphere and management. Full benefits including 401k and pension

    Cons

    Siloed teams, slow adoption and implementation of new capabilities, compensation should be more competitive as it is difficult for a large pay bump unless moving to a new role or via a promotion

    Advice to Management

    Increase speed of delivery and remove some of the red tape around change management. Advance the high performing employees quickly and hold the under-performing employees accountable.

    Pros

    I worked in the New York Metro area for 10 years. It was good for the first 6 years.
    You receive leads fro the existing customer base.

    Cons

    Then Allstate started raising prices on all it's auto and homeowners customers. The customers were leaving us in droves. They are not competitive at all.

    Advice to Management

    Get with it Allstate. You don't need to be the lowest price on the block but you do need to be in the ballpark.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    Amazing PTO, good coworkers and the management wants to trust you so they don't get on your case when you mess up starting off. It's a much more relaxed / better morale claims office compared to other companies I've worked at. Most of my coworkers are smart and want to do the right thing. Able to make my own schedule most days.

    Cons

    Not the best training. Spent two weeks at HQ learning about obvious parts of the vehicle. Zero time on suspension, mechanical, and electrical. Minimal time on frame. These cost more to repair and the parts aren't exactly easy to find sometimes.

    Alot of on the job training which is really the best way to learn with this position but definitely start off paying for items you learn a few months in you shouldn't have.

    Some managers are great (mine is) and some are horrible. I can imagine my job being horrible if I switched managers.

    No company car right away, drive up to shops in my own car is a big red flag i'm a new guy...please take advantage of me.

    Starting salary, not the best.

    Advice to Management

    The company car deal is unprofessional. I get paid miles but I rather get the car. Stop being cheap with that.

    Some middle managers are horrible. Its known they are horrible even by higher level managers but nothing is done. My team morale is great compared to the horrible managers team.
