    I worked at Allstate (More than a year)

    Pros

    Allstate hires very smart people. As a consultant I always felt valued and respected. Tom Wilson is a visionary driver and sets the bar high for the leadership which is a standard that trickles down effectively.

    Cons

    Large company problems...when working across business units it can be difficult to get decisions made because no one is sure who has the authority.

    Advice to Management

    What an impressive culture! Keep doing things the way you're doing them.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Small community in each branch, with brand name and a large amount of resources

    Cons

    Small community leaves branch open to short handedness and if one employee is inadequate, it is felt more across the branch. Hiring should be aided and assisted through home office, instead of left to every individual agency owner

    Advice to Management

    Voice more to home office about staffing, structure, online training needs to be expanded and requiring either already having P&C license or intent to get it within a certain amount of days would weed out unqualified applicants. Benefits should be centralized too.

    Pros

    Allstate provided great benefits and organized a lot of activities for employees to make them more like part of a community.

    Cons

    Allstate is a very large company, so it was hard to feel like I was significant or making an impact.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The paid time off is great. Benefits are also a plus. The manager, David Redding, is incredible. If you're a field adjuster they provide all your needs to get your job done.

    Cons

    Mangers can be overbearing, empathetic. Won't mention any names but prior to losing a family member was questioned if they were a hypochondriac, mind you she was battling 20 years of breast cancer.
