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 Management

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

    I worked at Allstate full-time (More than a 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 Management

    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.

    Great company while it lasts, but the focus needs to be on retaining the best employees

    I worked at Allstate full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great time off in benefits package, including the option to buy days off. Also, the company contribution towards benefits is pretty good. Also, the vast majority of people who work there are really great people.

    Cons

    There are many cliques within the company. If you are not a member of the right cliques, you probably won't advance much within your career. There is no focus made to retain outstanding employees. If a department is cut, even the best employees with outstanding ratings are cut, and there is no real opportunity given to locate another job within the company if you aren't within the right cliques.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to retain your best, truly loyal employees who have outstanding ratings year after year, especially when "business decisions" are made to close departments. That talent has a wealth of company knowledge that will serve any other department very well, and every effort should truly be made to retain them.
