    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    Create 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?

    Pros

    Working as a summer intern at Allstate proved to be a very rewarding experience that I would gladly recommend to anyone interested. I was a bit nervous going in at first (it is just an insurance company, after all), but after the first week I realized how great of a place it would be. My boss was very approachable, my work was real and meaningful, and the atmosphere itself was just laid-back enough to allow me to not dread coming in every morning. In fact, I can almost say I was excited to go back every day.

    Cons

    Hard to name any, other than some lame intern events

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
