    I have been working at Allstate full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work/Life, Vacation, easy to follow work since it moves so slowly

    Cons

    Cronyism, No promotions, Frozen Salaries, Lack of technical people in technology, CEO horrible. Anyone worth anything has already left, so it is an adverse selection of good talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is incapable of understanding advice. Total vacancy of leadership.

    Pros

    Benefits are ok

    Able to work from home
    Flexible schedule

    Cons

    Upper management wants to outsource technology because cheaper not better quality.
    Short timelines - commit to project dates without understanding complexity
    Difficult to let go of resources that are not doing their job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the knowledge Allstate resources have. Look at quality over cheap resources.
