I worked at Allstate full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

A lot of development opportunities especially early on, lots of opportunity to move around to different finance areas, quickly learn basic corporate finance skills that translate to other departments and industries easily

Cons

after a few years your progress/ development stagnates, start to feel like you are re-doing the same project over and over b/c management does not have a clear picture of what they want, start to feel like the work you're doing adds no value

Advice to ManagementAdvice

focus more on the big picture and the end goal and try to work towards it instead of getting caught up in the smaller details

    Former Employee - IT Consultant in Northbrook, IL

    I worked at Allstate full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Modern work environment, high standard of ethics, friendly co-workers, on site amenities like Starbucks, health club, barber shop, wellness center, drug store, cafeteria

    Cons

    Uncertain job security, too many reorganizations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many micro managers who give out vague or unclear direction. Let the workers know the ultimate goal and timeframe and let them figure out how to achieve it.
