    I worked at Allstate full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great advertising campaign, good solid initial corporate online training for agents.

    Cons

    performs service work for no compensation, interrupts with outgoing sales, prospecting, hard to meet production quotas.
    Agency owners lie thru their teeth, overpromise commissions, never on site, act thru their agency managers.
    They ARE NOT the good hands people.
    No basics, no training manual, no SOPs, learn thru the school of hard knocks,
    dont waste my time, your time, Stay away, find other more reputable insurance companies, Safeco, Pemco, Farmers..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more directly supervise your agency owners, i.e. new agent orientation and training. Leaving them up to the task can expose you to litigation risks and E& O issues. Get smart.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people. perks, discounts, salary and employee benefits. Location and ability to work at home a few days a week it added bonus.

    Cons

    IT managers are penny wise and dollar foolish. The good people leave for other companies and some dead wood stays on for years. Non IT trained people in management seats have made some poor decisions as they do not possess the IT knowledge to see the long term consequences of some actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strong IT leaders are needed to succeed and bring this company to the next level.
