    I worked at Allstate as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexibility with scheduling and friendly atmosphere. Compensation is somewhat in your own hands.

    Cons

    Not enough back-office support for agencies. Every time there was an issue, underwriters are quick to hang the phone. Wasn't the case sometimes, but would say it was most of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back office personal need to support the agencies more competently.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is great. Mangers are very understanding that you have a life outside of work.
    Always offering classes to further education concerning you job.
    Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Pay is mediocer
    Personal growth seems to really depend on yourself. You really need to bring up your future with managers. They tend not lead you unless you bring it up.

    Pros

    Good management, positive environment, surprisingly not many rude callers!

    Cons

    Constant phone calls can be hard. Coworkers you call who are supposed to be "apart of the team" give you attitude for asking them to do their jobs, people expecting you to be able to do EVERYTHING.
