    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!

    I worked at Allstate

    Pros

    Large insurance company with a well known name. Numerous locations to most major cities creates vast opportunities close to home reducing long travel.

    Cons

    Independently ran creating no real structure as far as compensation. Owners are not always well versed in maintaining and running a business. High rep turn over. Plus rates are not extremely competitive so it creates high customer turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create some sort of way to make it so the sales reps for these independent agencies can make a decent living.
