    Pros

    I've seen the highest ethical standards met by our officers. I've personally experienced a level of professionalism and patience as well as willingness to take anyone under their wing from high-level position holders within the company too - even after hours phone calls for mentor/mentee relationships - ASTONISHING and unparalleled. I started working for this company less than 5 years ago and I've received more opportunities than I can count - helping me to create a diverse knowledge base and make me a valuable employee. If you WANT to succeed, there's almost no way you won't. Dedication, determination, compassion and a passion for learning are good prerequisites for anyone working here.

    Cons

    Honestly the only con I can think of is that certain positions within the company involve a greater involvement in off hours than I think management realizes. There is a large number of a division of people that feel constantly overworked. It's the nature of the type of work unfortunately, but there is room for improvement for communication between leaders of people and the people who report to them about the fact that very few will ever feel like they AREN'T overwhelmed because of a process of how the system is set up for new and pre-existing work deliverables.

    Advice to Management

    Facilitate transparent constructive conversation between leaders of people and reporting employees who have workload concerns. Continual process improvement around a better way to deliver new work and manage existing work for employees working within the NextGen environment should be a priority.

    Pros

    Decent salaries, excellent benefits. Work schedule is pretty much mainstream. Only adding more here because I hadn't hit my minimum amount of words required to post a review.

    Cons

    If you don't kiss major butt or fit into a clique, you will not get ahead. Period. I have seen highly qualified people get passed over in order to promote the friends of the managers. Management does not delineate between boss/subordinate very well.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on worth and not on who's friends with who. Do not pass over highly qualified individuals and try to show less favortism.

    Pros

    Very helpful team and great training. Great mentor and independent work ethic. The agent was really patient and a good teacher in helping me learn insurance.

    Cons

    Only worker at the agency. Needed more staff. The agency was great, but being the only worker in the agency with no health benefits became very overwhelming. Doing a lot for low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Get more staff.

    Pros

    Professional company, Good name recognition. The technology is state of the art. I could work with little interference from management.

    Cons

    When management did get involved in the day to day operation there was often drama. But this would vary as every Allstate agent runs his business as he or she sees fit.
