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

Pros

Term conversion opportunities, Book of business to cross sell, flexible hours, minimal overhead costs

Cons

1099 means paying self employment tax, very few benefits, trying to find Agent partner that matches personality

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit nickel and diming commission structures. It looked good early but those percentages keep getting chipped away.

    I worked at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    The benefits and salaries are great, and there are opportunities to learn a lot and work with some interesting people.

    Cons

    They re-organize about every 2 weeks and go through a constant and ceaseless cycle of hiring and firing. They don't even try to retain employees any more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasting your investment in people by throwing them out like they're garbage every time you do a re-org. Figure out how you can retain these bright, intelligent people who don't deserve to be treated like this!

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

    Pros

    Descent benefits and the company believes in work/balance life. There are opportunities for telecommuting or working from home a couple of days every week. The people are friendly and willing to help.

    Cons

    For the past several years the company has been outsourcing work and downsizing. That has led to a workload issue for the remaining resources. The keeps stating we have to do more with less. This has caused some morale issues in areas that have heavy workloads and not enough resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either reduce the number of projects to lessen the pressure and stress on resources or hire more people.
