    I worked at Allstate full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The benefits aren't bad, the pay is decent if you are a high performer with no bachelors. It can be a steady source of work. You don't have to worry about your appearance. Many people are friend;y

    Cons

    The management is passive aggressive and condescending. There is not a lot of opportunity to move forward, depending on where you start.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are components of the jobs that are unnecessarily stressful and since I have left the companies i have read that a lot of the call center practices are antiquated and ineffective. The way things are structured currently preys on people with low self-esteem, people with health problems and single parents. It has a nice veneer but whats under the hood needs to be improved if retention is to get any better.

    Pros

    I was an intern at Allstate. I could not have asked for a better group of people to work with. All of my co-workers took time to help me learn and show me the ropes of the business. The work was interesting and the company has a great work/life balance.

    Cons

    None, great place to work.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work/Life is best in the industry. People are in general very happy at Allstate. Many employer sponsored events. Summer hours will generally be very flexible. Holidays and benefits are better than I have seen at many other companies. Allstate is a favorite of people with families and soon to be moms.

    Cons

    Management really tries to create opportunities for further advancement but there are times when there are none. If in an situation, your team/department is going through organizational changes, there is a big possibility you might have to quickly move on/out or you could either be put in somewhere or will have to leave. Very rarely does this happen though.
