    I have been working at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    Independence, in depth training program, excellent benefits packages, 401(k) match, excellent support from fellow teammates, relaxed work environment, upper management seems to be making attempts at more forward thinking instead of being old fashioned

    Cons

    compensation seems to be on the lower side of other insurance companies. even though some changes have been made to the promotion and career opportunity structure, it still seem like they still promote based on favoritism, work/life balance

    Pros

    Large company with endless work/life benefits and well-being perks... Flexible work schedule, working from home options, plenty of personal and professional development opportunities to advance yourself and your career.

    Cons

    With such a large corporation, change is a long and slow process. Its hard to feel like you are truly getting anything done. The workforce, while diverse in age, has many older folks who are not as keen to adopt modern work mentalities like those of the millennials.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More Money....raises are paltry
    Allstate needs to understand that if Health Care IT can use Agile, Allstate can use Agile. And the small groups around Allstate that think they're using agile are just kidding themselves and their teams.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to advance your career with different teams.
    Good pay.
    Good benefits.
    Friendly people who will genuinely help you when needed.
    You are rewarded well for performing well.

    Cons

    Giant corporation with lots of red tape to make any changes.
    Not exactly on the cutting edge of technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for less bureaucracy in some instances. In a highly regulated industry there will always need to be some areas of the business where everything is tightly controlled, but other areas are being held back from their potential needlessly.
