    Former Employee - Actuarial Intern in Northbrook, IL

    I worked at Allstate as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    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.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great opportunities to move around if you can develop the right relationships. Good work-life balance...

    Cons

    Too many leadership changes. Every time a new leader gets transferred into a department they want to make their mark and end up changing too much. Leaders never stay in one place long enough and the employees suffer. Impacts efficiencies, and progress...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the rotations. If you continue to rotate, get to know what the departments direction is before making changes.
