    Pros

    Paid time off is generous in claims. Benefits are pretty good and job security is a plus.

    Cons

    Salaries are much lower than industry standard, Working nights/weekends to keep up with your work. Work overload for the salary.

    Pros

    It is a good company with great people, Starbucks, awesome benefits, and actual work-life balance. You work hard but then you actually get nights and weekends off.

    Cons

    Many roles start off temp-to-hire. If you are a contractor, you are completely disposable. Also it is a corporate environment with all of the corporate games.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees better, including contractors. It is better for all if people are respected and valued.

    Pros

    Learn the Insurance Business top to bottom. Good training and place to start and learn about sales.

    Cons

    Allstate Office on every corner in America, your own Company Agents are your worst competition.
    Agents who have been there a long time get to bend the rules; a lot of Corporate Office Politics.
    They only hire you if you can show you have several thousand dollars to "invest" in your (their) Business and high turnover rate of Agents

    Advice to Management

    None= They don't listen to anyone!

  8. Ok

    Pros

    The company is a decent company to work for. They do recognize hard work.

    Cons

    The pay is way too low. The PTO is not enough accumulated in a year. And if you have no PTO you get penalized for being sick. God forbid an emergency arises at home. No sick days and not enough PTO is tough to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to make theirselves more available. Being able to earn More PTO days would be nice, if we cannot accumulate more PTO then do not penalize employees for being sick.

    Pros

    Continuing training from corporate on updated DOI news and company structure. You have constant support from corporate and management is helpful on helping you succeed. Brand recognition. The company name is well known if you sell P&C. Most independent agencies will sponsor your P&C test and exam materials and some may offer company benefits (Health, vision, 401k match, dental). Most agencies offer bonus plans at end of the year (if you hit your goal) and they offer salary and commission structure.

    Cons

    Working for an independent agency minimizes your growth and salary. Most agents may be trapped in the complacent work environment. No pay raise in 2 years.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, good location, great start for college graduates

    Cons

    Work requirements, goals not feasible for 40 hours/week. More like 50-60 hours.
    Does not blend with single mother if impromptu time needed to leave work.

    Advice to Management

    Please adjust goals to 40 hour/week work week. Unrealistic goals will not be recognized if most employees stay late, work from home or come early.

  11. Helpful (1)

    Flexible, but lots of after-hours work and poor management.

    Pros

    In most IT areas, you can work from home twice per week if you like. Your office hours are extremely flexible (7-3,8-4,9-5, whatever works). ATO has a very good recognition program. It's like being part of a community at Home Office. More PTO than you could ever use. There are some really genuine, nice folks that have been with the company for a long time.

    Cons

    Extreme amounts of after-hours work. IT services are most definitely heading in the direction of Ireland/India. Health benefits are still costly and are OK. 401K matching went down while I was with the company. Vertical movements within the company are hard to achieve. Chaotic organizational changes that occur every 6-10 months. Salary schedule is very buckled down. A lot of bad apples seem to find their way into the door of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more in home office, stop hiring fully remote workers, and put candidates through a more effective interview process. Read the internal management feedback and actually do something about the bad apples.
