Allstate treated me fairly, but the company is not growing, which makes it more difficult for opportunities.

Pros

Large company with decent benefits.

Cons

I feel on average, the pay at Allstate is below the industry average. The company is trying to cut costs wherever they can, which is leading to a lot of outsourcing.

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

    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.

    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.
