Pros
Cons
  • Pay can be low compared to other opportunities but they make up for it in other areas like work life balance and benefit offerings (in 75 reviews)

  • You're an independent contractor so there are no benefits, though Allstate does offer some more affordable packages for their agents to purchase (in 67 reviews)

    Pros

    Great for new college graduates - you gain a perspective of the company right out the gate. You also get the opportunity to dive into possible career interests before committing to a permanent position. Great opportunity for development as leaders take you seriously and hear your ideas. Great place to work. Truly, "The Good Hands."

    Cons

    Nothing too glaring - it is a program, so you must complete the three, one year rotations before moving into a permanent role.
