    Great internship, with real hands on experience, and with an organization that has a friendly and casual environment.

    I have been working at Allstate as an intern

    Pros

    Everyone I work with is very nice and very helpful. Allstate has a culture of being very friendly, casual, yet, productive. I really enjoy with the working environment here at Allstate. I also got a lot of first hand experience on real projects related to my career path.

    Cons

    Since Allstate is such a large organization, it is easy for interns to fall through the cracks, especially at the beginnnng.

    I worked at Allstate full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The Home Office in Northbrook is the country club with a strictly laid-back 9 to 5 hour work day because nobody cared about putting in extra effort to get ahead because it won't make any difference. Long coffee breaks in morning and afternoon and very long lunches, an hour or more as the multitudes leave for the restaurants or to catch a nooner. We used to go swimming and sunbathing in the summer. Nobody cared.

    Cons

    - Notorious for low pay, worst of all companies in the area.
    - No advancement. When potential promotion opportunity opens up they hire in from the outside.
    - Mundane, dreary, unchallenging clerical work that does not add to one's skills.
    - All employees considered expendable. Known as nothing more than a body shop.
    - Revolving door of capable people, the ones who stay are the otherwise unemployable drones, including managers and above.
    - Some offices are sweatshop: long grueling hours, salaried so no overtime, combined with low pay; while Home Office in Northbrook is the sleepy, lethargic country club
    - Bad attitudes pervade throughout entire company, especially among claims people who are evaluated on how low they can keep per-claim cost. I have had first hand experience with that as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have Allstate insurance, please don't hit my car.
