Ever trying to reinvent the wheel. Places individuals without functional experience and knowledge into leadership roles.

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

ProsAllstate in general is a good place to work. They have tried to make the physical location at Home Office a more productive and pleasing environment. Many friendly people there and the work can be challenging

ConsWhile constant improvment to move the company ahead should be encouraged, having leaders who do not have functional experience making decisions on process improvements just does not work. While Allstate talks the talk, they do not walk the walk and actually commit and follow through on things. Allstate always seems half hearted in their efforts whether it is employee engagement, diversity, recruitment or any real commitment. Does not think long term. The ROI on any venture must be immediate or they do not think it is worth it. Some things take time and commitment and it seems that Allstate is not willing to put in that time. Unlike State Farm and some other liek companies who can look forward and plan 10, 20 or 30 years in the future, Allstate only looks ahead quarter by quarter. Mutual versus Public I suppose. The pay is also lower in the market for similar work.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommit to things and follow through. Invest in the long term with your employees and your community as it will equate to increased business and revenue in the future.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

All are not equal

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Allstate for more than 3 years


Pros: Some divisions of Allstate are great to work in a treat and pay everyone fairly… Cons: Some divisions do not get the same care taken as others. As in many corporate environments life is like high… Advice to Senior Management: Pay based on experience and education even in the entry… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
