A company at a crossroads

Agency Owner (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO

ProsThey are agressive at managing their risks which makes them more financially stable, in the long run, than many of the other property casualty insurers. They seem to have an idea of where they want to be positionsed for the future. They are strongly encouraging their strongest agents to grow.

ConsBecause of their conservative nature it causes them to struggle on the pricing side and while other companies are buying business Allstate refuses to play that game. It means that you have to be able to sell service and unique products instead of price. This becomes difficult to do under current situations. They continue to push the costs on the agency force without offering more competitive products or additional compensation.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you continue to increase costs for your "business owners" without increasing rewards you will not find new "business owners." Risk vs Reward you should know well from being in the risk management business.
