Pros

Not much unless you're the follower type. Or if you're the type who finds comfort in working for a very big company. Or if you have sycophant tendencies, then this might be the place for your career.

Cons

Suffocating corporate culture. Preach a lot of politically correct sounding nonsense, when they really don't. Plagued with the usual problems a big corporation has... Slow moving and out-of-touch.

Advice to Management

There's nothing further to say.

    Pros

    Clear chain of command
    Nice campus that included a good gym and a good cafeteria
    Decent workspace

    Cons

    I hate to admonish an entire organization for the behavior of one supervisor, but the fact that this person was a lifelong "Allstater," and was allowed to persist in some of the most destructive managerial practices I have ever witnessed certainly speaks to the wisdom and judgment of their leadership as a whole. I watched on in horror numerous times as this person diminished and abused her underlings in at times almost comical fashion. But no one was laughing. Indeed, I walked out of a meeting in which she brought another woman I worked with to tears -- literally.

    Advice to Management

    Solicit feedback about superiors from not only FT Allstate staff but also contractors and take that feedback seriously. At least one of them is bringing contractors in to use as her own personal scratching posts.
