    I worked at Allstate full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Nice People. The company is outsourcing jobs as fast as they can to Asia.

    Cons

    Outsourcing Environment. Lots of politics and people afraid to lose their jobs. Nepotism. Cronyism. Many people have family members that work there. In many ways it is an extension of Cook County politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is not what you know, but who you know and who you are related to.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great work environment. However Allstate is changing the agency expectations therefore important to seek employment with an agent who is supportative in the marketing and sales efforts of their staff.

    Cons

    Each Allstate office is owned by an independent agency owner. Therefore salary, commission and benefits for licensed staff vary and are completey up to the agency owner. If seeking employment with a newer agency, more agents are starting licensed staff at a lower base salary, my experience around $18K - $20K + commission and benefits are not great and there is more turnover. The more seasoned agency owners start slightly higher but with Allstate revamping the agency owners structure with the company even the more seasoned agents are downsizing.
