      Great Company, great benefits, and over-all a good place for people who want to grow in their careers.

      Pros

      Good at promoting Inclusive Diversity ideas and concepts. Willing to help employees grow professinally. Had ways to help develop good leaders when partnered with the correct mentors and teams, and groups.

      Cons

      Easily overlooked hourly employees and support staff from these leadership and professional growth programs when they have managers that do NOT know how to manage employees and alllow them to grow. Middle Managers may know how to develope future leaders, but entry level managers are sometimes left behind often discouraging these options to their team members causing potentially good employees to become discouranged about these opportunities offered by the organization. There was nothing worse than feeling that these professional programs were only for specific employees with specfic job titles, opposite of the messages that Inclusive Diversity communicated to the organization.

      Classic evil fortune 100 company

      Pros

      Middle Management is trained to be supportive of their teams

      Cons

      The “transformational growth” was a veiled term to refer to laying off thousands of employees in necessary positions to justify hundreds of do-nothing upper admin positions and shore up market share. The company treats you like an expendable human resource behind a veil of kindness. You’re made to feel appreciative of your low pay and if you don’t, you’re outcasted from career opportunities. It’s a neo-corporate trend of having an unspoken paper-mill style work environment. The job “mobility” consists primarily of numerous lateral moves that give you more responsibility and no pay increases. Actual promotions or significant changes in pay are determined by favoratism. How well you brown nose and drink the corporate kool aid determines your likelihood of being truly promoted, and even then you’re competing with a bunch of other over-qualified people. Your peers in other career sectors will quickly outpace you in advancement and pay. Allstate also pays low compared to their competitors across the board, but somehow manages to get really talented people. Not sure how but it’s probably some evil corporate scheme.

      Pros

      - The culture with people in the design community are really some of the most wonderful people you'll ever meet. It's like a family. - There is...ok work /life balance

      Cons

      - The pay is way below market average - Lots of bureaucracy and red tape, more so than any other company - Lots of posturing from managers and senior managers, meaning it's extremely hierarchal - No job advancement, unless someone leaves, and even then, you have to APPLY to the next role, not because you deserved it, but because you have to show them that you want it more than any external applicants - The organization claims it cares about UX (user experience), but everything that you see shows that all the head honchos really care about is selling selling selling. So everything is all about marketing and advertising. They're not focused on making their products better, or listening to user feedback. They more focused on getting more people in the door to offer them a mediocre product, when their competitors are vastly outpacing them.

      Pros

      Able to work with P&C agents to uncover leads that are not cold

      Cons

      If you work with one P&C agent in one year, but not the next, then the clients you have connected with do not travel with you when it comes to internal correspondence. The client eventually becomes an orphan within a system

      CEO has vision, lots of smart ppl at the bottom, but management in the middle is a mess.

      Pros

      Great PTO and benefits, can work from home now with the pandemic.

      Cons

      Politics, red tape, having to constantly explain basic technical concepts to management repeatedly, senior management doesn't seem to like the fact that we got a permanent "work from home" designation and wish for us to return to the office eventually.

      Pros

      The commission was uncapped so you could technically earn as much as you're willing to work for.

      Cons

      No employer benefits working for a local agent. Lot's of cold calling. Industry is saturated.

      Pros

      Highest paying up front commissions.

      Cons

      New technology completely changed my mind about the company as far as a sales producer, however I did purchase a hand full of shares of stock in the company because I see them doing innovative things in the future.

      Big changes in the wrong direction.

      Apr 14, 2021 - BI Claims Adjuster in Cincinnati, OH
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      401k match, easy PTO scheduling. Competitive compensation with yearly raises.

      Cons

      The company has made a lot of recent changes which focus on saving the company money at the expense of its employees and customer service. The recent changes included lay offs and additional work in day to day claim handling. In turn it caused high turn over and an even more massive workload. Technology such as phone systems and adjusting tools are painfully slow and have constant issues. All departments involved are behind and it creates poor customer experience, pissed off customers, and more work for everyone. The company creates issues outside of your control and you are at the front lines taking the heat.
