Current Employee - Mid-Level Manager

I have been working at Allstate full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Very tenured, hardworking group of people in the California Region who are focused on the stakeholders (agents, customers and stockholders).

Cons

Merit increases are very low, even for high performing employees if they are too tenured.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don’t take your people resources for granted. There is value in tenure.

    I worked at Allstate full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you are located in a great place, you can look at making 60,000K. A lot of various opportunities should you be working near head office.

    Cons

    Paid based on a advance on commission. Very high pressure to sell and reach your monthly quota and very aggressive to push you out of the organization should you not reach it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to know your employees and provide genuine insight into how agents can build a better book of business. Do not simply assume that when one thing works for one agent that the same will be for another.

    Allstate is schizophrenic. Technology is clunky.

    I worked at Allstate full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I had wonderful and talented coworkers. In 10 years I had 9 different managers and a few of them were good.

    Cons

    Allstate changes direction constantly. Management wastes time and money. They do not deploy employees effectively. Rewards are not consistent. The past few years have seen only take aways for the average employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the many layers of bureaucracy and trust your employees. Management talks a lot about valuing employees but then outsources and lays them off without attempting to redeploy human resources.
