    Great place to work but you'll likely not move up.

    I worked at Allstate full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a great place to work most of the time. The recession Era changes were bad and they threw away employees but otherwise it is a really good and stable place. Customer focus is huge and you're given a lot of freedom to do what's best for the customer.

    Salaries grow based on a percentage increase. Newer employees aren't going to make a lot at first but as you stick around, you're salary can really grow.

    Cons

    There are numerous employees with 10, 20, 30 years in. That speaks volumes on how they generally treat employees. But, if you want to move up, you'll have to wait for someone to retire. Or, plan to move around the country chasing your next advancement opportunity.

    Customer service is huge which means that you'll work Saturday's and Sunday's as well as late duty on a rotating basis. Work life balance can suffer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus less on what Wall Street thinks about how the company is doing and more on how the employees think.

    Pros

    Work life balance and stability

    Cons

    Career advancement is difficult and slow to come.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advancement is difficult because management has limited knowledge of what it takes to complete our jobs. They are too focused on the end results.

    Pros

    Allstate allows people to easily to move up in the company. Everyone that works there for the most part is really nice. The culture is very good, with a great work life balance.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lot of nepotism. Also, sometimes the analysis you do isn't used at all. It seems like your progress stagnates after a few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More manager training.

    Pros

    My office has a very laid back atmosphere and I get to work with people all day!

    Cons

    The hours are not flexible. You have to be at work Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:30pm (at least). It's much later most days.
