    The last 3-4 years I've been on a depressing, sinking ship

    Current Employee - Allstate Technology Operations in Northbrook, IL

    Pros

    Work life balance is fantastic, PTO program for days off is great, people are skilled but leaving in droves for numerous reasons

    Cons

    new pay structure is the same for everyone (no "hot" career fields are rewarded in IT despite tons of outside opportunities), managed by fear, always waiting for the next negative announcement, entry leadership positions are with little to no decision making ability or pay increase - merely write reviews for team members and take the fall if they screw up, morale is at rock bottom, leadership is clueless that talented people are leaving in droves and has been defensive when the subject is discussed, outsourcing is a priority and helping the company to increase outsourcing is something employees are reviewed on, company has a culture of regular leadership changes (in short time intervals) so continuity is non-existent, I have witnessed 8 oranizational changes in the last 10 years - it's like trying to hit a moving target, company has a culture of NOT using lessons learned for the benefit of future efforts. Was one a company with some dysfunction (like most large companies have) but had great people who made things work extremely well. In the last few years, it has become a company with SEVERE dysfunction and many good people with talent and options are leaving willingly because they see the downward spiral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your front line employees to make decisions on the work they do (processes, organization structure, etc) because they are the experts. One size fits all does not work. Changing the entire organization to fix one or two broken processes breaks other things that worked! Continuity is important. Managing with a constant state of fear does not foster innovation because employees with low morale are not typically as productive. Make decisions based on the presence of DATA and FACTS, not because an important situation just needs a change. Constant reactive decisions are not a way to run a business. When making changes, ask "what problem am I trying to fix" instead of just making changes to put a management regeme's stamp on the organization.

    Pros

    Big company. Long history. Solid change.

    Cons

    Company has cut back and let go of many folks. They advised them they can retire or get fired...new processes seem to only impact older employees. Newer employees typically don'g last more than two years these days. This job is not fun. This company is committing suicide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You wont have a job come retiring age. Make sure you keep your resume updated.
