Transforming an old giant into a leaner and more agile company

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Northbrook, IL

I worked at Allstate full-time

ProsThe people are very welcoming and friendly. There are an unlimited number of opportunities to be creative, innovative and help the company grow.

ConsThe downside to Allstate is that they think about career progressions very linearly. If you are hired as a financial analyst, you will follow the same career path that countless others have followed. They lack the HR wherewithal and creativity to identify or validate the true value in peoples' abilities outside of prescribed position requirements.

If you want mobility at Allstate, make sure you are hired into the area that you truly want to work in long-term.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate better practices for identifying internal talent. The old ways still get the same results.

When will you goofs learn that it's more important to have someone who want to kill it at the job than someone who has the specific knowledge?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
