I have been working at Allstate full-time for more than a year

Pros

You are truly self-employed. Theoretically, you're income is unlimited, but it is limited by the lack of new auto and home customers.

Cons

They have saturated the area with RR's
The high auto premiums are causing the Agents to loose more customers than they are getting
Low, low commissions and incredibly good ole boy group, if you're not one of them, forget it.
Sales staff morale is at all time low thanks to CEO's company direction to the internet
The only reason most of the upper management move here is to work 2 more years and retire, that's a quote from one of them

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop worrying about your hiring plans and upper management year end bonuses and be managers.

    I worked at Allstate full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of good senior industry talent to work with and learn from, great focus on rotating young talent, many areas have good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is not settled; many entrances, exits, and shifts cause inconsistency. Compensation at junior levels is not market-competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A focus on broadly developing talent is very attractive to young talent, however below market compensation ensures that you only broadly develop mid and lower performing individuals over the long run.

    Former Employee - Claims Service Representative in Suffern, NY

    I worked at Allstate full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    benefits, interesting work (though too much of it.) required to investigate and close certain amount of claims and answer the non stop phone. could not be done in the time alloted and spent many, many hours of my own time to keep up.

    Cons

    excessively heavy workload. needed to put in a lot of overtime though not paid for overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more realistic expectation of how much work can be done in a given amount of time, recognizing that a good part of the day is spent answering the phone.

    No opinion of CEO
