    Former Employee - Agency Owner in Boise, ID

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

    Pros

    The company catagorizes it's agents as "Independent Contractors," or business owners. It is a good learning experience if you strive to be an entreprenuer. Each agency is responsible for hiring, training, and paying their staff (if approved by Home Office.) Highly recommend selling
    Allstate as an Independent Agent, not as an Exclusive Agent.

    Cons

    Allstate sets very high agent premium expectations, and if not met, they can terminate your contract. They classify their agents as Independent Contracts, but it only for their financial benefit. Agents can only sell Allstate Products, they own all the policies, if you decide to sell your agency-they have to approve it, they have you sign a 2 yr non-compete contract, they own your phone lines, and they can terminate your contract at anytime. They will hire just about anyone because they are not investing any money, if hired you have to invest your money and sign leases. If they terminate your contract, your still responsible for lease and due to the contract you can not open another agency for 2 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lowereing commissions and increasing production requirements. Let the agency owners "run" their own business, or classify them as employees. Stop requiring "life insurance, annuity, and variable annuity" premium production as a means to terminate agents contracts. Let agencies own their own phone lines.
