Former Employee - Senior Recruitment Consultant in Chantilly, VA
Former Employee - Senior Recruitment Consultant in Chantilly, VA

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

Pros

- Great benefits
- Great office space and dining
- Discounts on products
- Generous incentive bonuses

Cons

- Senior leadership is inconsistent with communication
- Everything is sales-driven (bad if you didn't sign on for it)
- I needed to have surgery on my shoulder. Because of that and time needed for rehab I was told I'd be fired if I got the surgery.
- Not very diverse in age (mostly middle-aged and up at Capital region office)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While cross-training is good, having management in rotational roles they have no right being in is bad for them and bad for the team they're leading. Moreover, be honest with job descriptions. I applied to do something that was not sales related and was disappointed to learn it was very much sales-driven.

    Former Employee - Manager in Northbrook, IL

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

    Pros

    Great place to start your insurance career, solid training and development programs. Opportunities for advancement, especially at the new and middle management levels.

    Cons

    CEO and some senior leaders can't seem to decide what they want the company to be, shifting priorities or just not prioritizing at all, seem to get enchanted by the idea of the day. Too much reliance on consultants and outside talent.
