    Pros

    Nice people. The company fosters an environment of friendliness and diversity. There is a huge emphasis on work/life balance in most departments.

    Cons

    It is sometimes difficult to get reports done on time within the deadlines. It is a very deadlined-based workplace. At least where I work: Finance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your entry-level employees better. It will motivate them to perform better and more efficiently.

    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!
