    I worked at Allstate full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked in the New York Metro area for 10 years. It was good for the first 6 years.
    You receive leads fro the existing customer base.

    Cons

    Then Allstate started raising prices on all it's auto and homeowners customers. The customers were leaving us in droves. They are not competitive at all.

    Advice to Management

    Get with it Allstate. You don't need to be the lowest price on the block but you do need to be in the ballpark.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong name recognition which may help you when getting a job with another company.

    A good amount of vacation days, however sick time is included in them and you do not get the national holidays that most other employees get. We do get a company provided vehicle that we are able to use when not working, this is my favorite benefit of the job.

    Cons

    Senior management that has little respect for claims employees who are actually the heart of an insurance company as they are the ones dealing with the policyholders and settling the claims. The company recently changed adjusters from hourly to salaried employees with the exception of the state of CA. This really hurt claims adjusters as we are now often working 50+ hour work weeks and only being paid for 40.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your employees are overworked and often underpaid and have lives outside of Allstate. There has to be a better way to balance the needs of the business while maintaining a good quality of life for employees.

    Pros

    Got to learn a lot about the insurance company.

    Find another more effective way to get in touch with new clients.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, learning to multi task and handle client problems/ complaints.

    Cons

    Have been working in an Allstate Agency for 2 years now and it is very upsetting to see how Incompetent the Agents are. Working as a customer service rep. I deal with problems on a daily basis, but what is really sad that 90% of the problems brought on the office is by the agent herself. But this is isnt the first Agent that i have worked for that seems to have no clue how to run a business. I came in a with a certain impression and have been very disappointed!

    Advice to Management

    Please make it mandatory for all agents to provide classes for their employees so that they are all trained. I see many agents hiring candidates who have no Customer service experience and without any training , these employees are unable to provide correct information on clients policies or are unable to relay correct information to clients.

    Pros

    convenience, local, easy commute, free parking, plenty of PTO, occasional work from home

    Cons

    low salary, no overtime, poor work conditions, huge workload, no career advancement, lack of rewards for meeting goals, lack of internal communication, huge call volume, no assistance or support, lack of support from coworkers in other departments, internal cohorts, unfair appraisals, huge turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    Pay you're employees better. Everyone comes to work to make money, no money and workers will move on elsewhere. Hire enough employees to handle you're huge claim loads, if you insure the largest market share than you need an equally large workforce. Make a customer service department so claims adjusters can actually work there claims!
