Amazing experience and a great place for an internship, especially your first one.

I have been working at Allstate as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Company values people greatly, both customers and its own, therefore people are incredibly friendly and understanding of your needs. Great work/life balance and opportunities to take initiative and grow. In my experience, this is not stereotypical paper filing and coffee retrieval, but you are actually a full member of the team for 12 weeks.

Cons

The Allstate "nice" culture can actually work to become a negative. People are so friendly that this often leads to passive aggressive behavior and lack of communication when an issue arises.

Advice to Management

Ensure interns have regular check-ins with their managers with emphasis placed on consistent communication and feedback.

    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 Management

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