I have been working at Allstate for more than a year

Pros

People are very friendly and easy to get along with. It is very laid back and a good work environment. They take work/life balance very seriously and care about your well being.

Cons

The compensation starts off very low. You can be doing the same thing with another company and make two times more money. The workload doesn't match the compensation for some positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase the salaries

    I have been working at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    Good people, many, many long-term employees 25+ years supporting a strong agency force. Financially stable, profitable company. Flexible work hours. Short term development opportunities to work at H/O in Northbrook. Feels like a family.

    Cons

    Even with flex start times, many exempt employees regularly work 10-12 hour days with no allowance for comp-time. As a result,work/life balance suffers. Always looking to trim expenses, educational opportunties/tuition reimbursement are often not approved. Workforce reduction over the last 5 years in the agency force as well as the regional support office has hurt morale. Salaries are average or to below average for the Seattle area. Senior management displays cliquish attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overlook loyal employees and look for ways to mentor, develop and challenge them. Be aware of a significant lack of work/life balance due to cuts in staffing Too many are being required to do the work of 2 or 3 people. Keep in mind that employee satisfaction and recognition is critical to your success. Look for ways to encourage employees to represent and advocate the Allstate brand.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Great work-life balance
    - Development opportunities if you perform well
    - Good benefits

    Cons

    - Pay doesn't keep pace with responsibility
    - With the company shrinking, opportunities will likely decrease

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do whatever it takes to grow the business - if that means cuts in the short-term, fine. The current strategy simply means a long slow decline.
