    Former Employee - Exclusive Agent

    I worked at Allstate full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Loved begin able to work my way up from being a licensed support staff associate to an agency owner, working one on one with my clients, being able to develop my own marketing plan, loved my fellow agents

    Cons

    Changes to compensation annually, Agent sales requirements changes annually that were unrealistic especially when the economy was not healthy, Company stressed too much on financial products instead of its bread and butter of P&C products, Failure to listen to their agents

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to really listen to their agents because believe it or not they do know what they are talking about. Home Office should investigate the termination practices on some of the agencies to determine if the contracts were terminated with merit. There needs to be a arbitration hotline for employees and/or agents who want to request an investigation of their contract termination.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many levels at non-bonus levels allow for many opportunities to improve position and salary. Still "pay for performance" and I am OK with that.

    Cons

    Once you get to the first bonus level that opportunities are few and far between as the organization continues to flatten to flatten out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allstate will lose it's top performers if the company does not offer opportunities at the upper levels.

    Pros

    Intern social events are helpful for you to know about the company and department you work in; very laid-back working environment but you can still learn a lot on the job

    Cons

    Probably not the best place if you are looking for tons of responsibility for an entry level job

    I didn't know that walking around and not doing your job results in raises, awards, and promotions.

    Think of ways to keep the little people around because they may become valuable to your company in the future.
