Pros

I was an intern at Allstate. I could not have asked for a better group of people to work with. All of my co-workers took time to help me learn and show me the ropes of the business. The work was interesting and the company has a great work/life balance.

Cons

None, great place to work.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing

    Pros

    If you have an existing book of insurance and financial clients and can add new general liability clients for property causality agents you will likely get a good start. Little to no supervision. If you love to work hard, there is opportunity.

    Cons

    P.C. agents have new financial producers introduced to them almost every week. You are told you can work with as many different P.C. agents as you like, but due to jaded agents (high turnover of financial reps), good luck getting any business referred to you. Two or three financial guys get 95% of all the business. It is VERY hard to get referrals. So, you are basically doing all your own production at half the comp. you would earn if you were independent. In addition, just because someone has general liability insurance doesn't mean there are good candidates for life, disability, long-term care or financial services. Remember you are in a sophisticated business. Anyone can buy general liability insurance. Horrible technology systems.

    Advice to Management

    you advertise your P.C. insurance on every television channel, billboards and publications available; why not financial services?

    You have to kiss a lot of feet,, and even that won't help, if you don't sell a lot.

    Pros

    If you like to go to work at 3pm and get out midnight,this is the job for you, can make money, if you sell policies to customers that call for changes or complain. If you get fired, go apply for unemployment benefits, you will get approved, IF you kept a record of ALL INTERACTION WITH MANAGEMENT AND TIME KEEPING ,and ABSENCE ISSUES.

    Cons

    If you want to work for this company, WRITE DOWN OR PRINT SCREEN EVERYTHING. They will fire you without any notice, just call you to a little office and won't even let you go back to your desk, someone will put your stuff in a white box, which will be waiting by the lobby area, next to security guard,when you get done listing to your manager explain why you got fired, it will always be some computer time keeping software, that says you are out of time. By the way they will bad mouth about you to potential future employers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat Employees with Respect and Dignity, FIX YOUR TIMEKEEPING SOFTWARE, AND STOP USING IT AS AN EXCUSE TO FIRE EMPLOYEES THAT YOU NO LONGER WANT, OR GOT SICK DUE TO WORKMAN's COMP ISSUE, BUT YOU FIRED THEM ANYWAY WITH THAT EXCUSE.
