    I worked at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    Good career development for employees and leaders. Flexible environment from an IT standpoint.

    Cons

    Difficult to navigate if you do not have a mentor or sponsor, but that is every company. Also leadership has been there for 25 plus years so sometimes it can be a challenge moving up.

    Pros

    Great company, stable, competitive, different things to do each day, great leadership principles.

    Hard to get promoted in a Region unless willing to move family. Depending on your manager - lack of flexibility. Lack of different teams working together for the same creative vision (silos).

    Advice to Management

    Provide more flexibility so you can keep talent.

    Pros

    Great vacation time based on experience

    Cons

    Micro-managed to the extreme by individuals with little knowledge of the jobs they are managing. The company feels they are cutting edge when they are well behind some of their competition. The management teams are not open to any suggestions from employees to better the company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so arrogant and think you don't need advice from your experienced employees

    a lot of Information Technology work has been outsourced so there is a constant fear or layoff ... but if you work hard and make yourself useful to the company that fear is less.
