    Pros

    Continuing education, good benefits and work/life balance

    Cons

    You have to watch your back and protect your clients/contacts. You can't rely on management for support. Watch your earnings very carefully.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be shady. Your employees notice.

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

    Pros

    They provide great opportunities for professional development and networking. Decent inter-company mobility if you're looking for a change of pace. And great benefits and wonderful on-site conveniences like a pharmacy, doctors office, fitness center, dry cleaning, barber shop, nail salon, Starbucks AND Red Mango.

    Cons

    I have experienced a fair amount of frustration due to conflicting leadership styles and frequent reorganization within departments. The only constant at Allstate is change! Haha

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership and individual contributors "get it." It's the middle mangers that need to be supportive of our initiatives and inclusive diversity.

    I worked at Allstate full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very good compensation schedule, high level training, quality products for your clients.

    Cons

    If you are an insurance agent, you are captive, compensation structure for agents is a higher percentage the first few years of contract then decreases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to innovate and stay cutting edge with marketing and brand recognition. Add bonuses to compensation throughout the contract, especially for new business.

    Pays well, people are wonderful, work is challenging but manageable. Really feel like you're making a difference. The campus is a great place to work at, with many activities always going on. Great mentorship program in place so that you don't feel alone in such a large program.

    Cons

    If you're not from the Chicago area, it can be a little overwhelming.
