Allstate Corporate Life = Misery

Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
Northbrook, IL

I worked at Allstate

ProsBenefits (PTO Days/Holidays)
401k/Pension
Employee "Appreciation Events" (e.g: incentives to keep employee's happy)
Visibility to Senior Leadership
Work/Life Balance

ConsEmployee morale is low due to highly visible favoritism
Sr Leadership in Finance Dept needs leadership training as well as etiquette on speaking with non-leadership staff - they often speak with demoralizing demeanor
Corporate life becomes very gruesome when fighting for budget dollars and headcount - they act like it is the end of the world and become nasty to work with. Not a place for people who get their feelings hurt easily.
Stop the finger pointing and work together to get the work done.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe fair to your employee's, do not use favoritism for promotions or assigning projects.
Treat your employees with respect, no matter what the circumstance is, always have corporate etiquette.
Non finance leadership staff should have finance training to get a better grasp on financials, especially to be promoted to higher sr leadership positions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
