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

Pros

Lots of opportunity to expand skills and capabilities and do different jobs. Great benefits and wellness focus.

Cons

If you have tenure -- you have to work twice as hard to prove your value. The perception by actions and not part of the future. When, in most cases, if you have tenure and survived the many changes at the company, you had to be flexible and totally open to change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value employees with experience and those new to the company. The two can blend to make the company successful. Don't make people feel bad if they have tenure!!!!

    I worked at Allstate as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The agent I was working for was nice, but thats about it.

    Cons

    The company was very pushy about making a sale. All they care about was making a certain amount on each dollar coming in. They didn't care about their customers like they say they do.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The opportunity can be unlimited for the right person and the right partners. Reps are paired with Agency owners to work their book of business. If you get a new agency owner or one who understands how the relationship is supposed to work, there is no limit to the financial reward. You control your schedule. Most clients are used to coming to the office to meet. It was rare to go to one's home or business.

    Cons

    Many Agency owners have been beaten around the head and ears by Allstate management and have lost their motivation and desire. When you get leads, it's up to you to make it happen. There is very little involvement by the Agents after passing the lead. A phone call from the agent to their client may help get the person in the office. Most of the clients I dealt with were low to middle income and offered very little ability to afford life insurance. Many wanted a quote but were not realistic in what they would pay for the coverage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Regional Sales Leaders need to work more closely with new Reps in the first 6-12 months. Very little training after the initial classes at the Regiional and National HQ. One would hope to get a call/visit six months in to determine why the Rep is not succeeding and what to do about it. Make the Agency owners give access to the book of business in order for the Reps to develop new leads.
