I have been working at Allstate full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Nice people. The company fosters an environment of friendliness and diversity. There is a huge emphasis on work/life balance in most departments.

Cons

It is sometimes difficult to get reports done on time within the deadlines. It is a very deadlined-based workplace. At least where I work: Finance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get to know your entry-level employees better. It will motivate them to perform better and more efficiently.

    Pros

    The people you meet in the company are great.

    Cons

    Management speaks from both side of their mouth. Do really know where you stand. Work being outsourced,but more responsibility for USA employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your team members to grow and trust in their skills.

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

    Pros

    The pro would be- that this gives you the kind of experience to know what company not to work for. And, that is Allstate Insurance as an agent.

    Cons

    Long hours, a difference in commission rates where independent agents get paid 50 percent more and really do own their book, and cannot be terminated with 90 days notice without cause.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat captive agents like independents. Do not mandate hours at office, do not mandate rolling phones over to a 1-800 line that sells to your customers. Guess who doesn't get the commission.
