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

Pros

Trying to get to the 21st century with regards to work environment. Nice work environment and very stable financially

Cons

Having salaries that are comeptitive in the market is a big issue. Also, does not commit to any initiatives long term. Diversity initiatives commitment and employee development are lacking. Career progressioin is lacking as well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you are going to talk the talk then walk the walk with regards to employee development and career advancement.

    A great place to burn out or if you enjoy politics at every turn!

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

    Pros

    Large organization with the opportunity to move if you need to or get tired of fighting the same battles.

    Cons

    Some of the worst morale and pay I have seen. Senior leadership allows infighting and politics to guide most of the decision making. IT has outsourced many positions related to quality and now wonders why new software releases cause major outages. They also cut the pay of the remaining IT staff which has sent a clear message to the more talented resources to head elsewhere.

    An okay place to start a career because the vast amount of dysfunction provides great example of how not to run a profitable company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire talented resources and pay them in a manner in which they will hang around. When making decisions start consider value to the customer/company ahead of the feeling of other leaders.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many employees come and stay; it is not an environment that promotes high turnover; good recognition with departments (at least in mine); potential for career movement; inclusive culture

    Cons

    Because so many people take a long time to leave the company movement can sometimes seem stalled. Health insurance cost could be lower when compared to some other companies; it seems for an insurance company the employees would get better discounts on the actual insurance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the employee discount; continue with the culture change; find ways to become more competitive cost wise
