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.

    I worked at Allstate full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There were so many people working there that eventually I found some people to hang out during my time there
    Insurance is easy, since it is an insurance company

    Cons

    Management was an absolute mess. Managers would sometimes contradict each other and leave the employee at the mercy of an organization that didn't know what it wanted.
    My manager left early in my time there and wasn't replaced until close to when I was laid off.
    Massive hiring surges, followed by massive layoffs.
    No one knows what's going on, so there are lots of meetings where nothing happens.
    Lots of emails that have lots of text, but don't have any actual information.
    Coworkers don't care - many times they misspelled my name when addressing me in emails. My name is 5 letters, and proofreading would take half a second.
    Either you have nothing to do for weeks on end or you're crunching on too much work to ever get done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slash and burn.

    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.
