Pros

Working for an insurance agent allows some flexibility in your family life when you need to be off for your children's school activities or doctor appointments.

Cons

In an insurance agency, you are limited on the time of year you can take a vacation because the boss always get the first choice of days off and he or she can take off as much as they like.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is any opportunity for advancement outside or inside of the agency.

    Former Employee - Senior Claims Service Adjuster in Saint Petersburg, FL

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

    Pros

    Big company who promises stability.

    Cons

    Cheap with some claim payouts, making the job difficult for adjusters being between the claimants and their bosses. Difficult to get a decent raise, if any. Some Management with Cavalier demeanor, e.g. Take it or leave it (hit the road- you're lucky to have a job at all) attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out and find something better while you're still under 50 years old. If older than that, just do what ever they say and preserve your retirement. Young people- Make sure you get a hefty initial salary, because departmental budgets allow for 1-5% raises (at best)
