    I worked at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    Allstate offers support for their agents

    Cons

    Allstate looks at a Licensed Insurance Agent strictly as a sales person not an overall agent who deals with sales, changes, claims, payments, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Allow LSP's to be well rounded. There is more customer retention with a well rounded agent.

    Work/Life balance, competitive pay and benefits, career opportunities, and commitment to the community. Company promotes wellness and personal growth and development. I'm very proud to work for this company.

    Company could do more to promote and advertise the commitment employees have to the community in which we live and work

    I have been working at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits with exceptional people that I get to work with on a daily basis. The trips and bonus programs are far superior to other companies.

    Cons

    It is always a competitive market which can be great but when your company is the one on the high side of the scale can be a challenge to meet goals and inspire those with you.

    Advice to Management

    Always be consistent. Take every opprotunity to encourage and help your staff grow. Just like a parent you want your children to have a better opprotunity than you did. My employees are more like team that you want then all to succeed.

    I worked at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    Working for an agency was very flexible with my schedule. I was on a smaller hourly but received a much larger than industry standard commission just for the sheer amount of accounts I was adding to my agency owner's bob.

    Cons

    If your agency owner isn't driving business through the door, be ready to hit streets and make some friends. Older large apartment buildings are usually good place to start. Meet the leasing agent and all his/her staff and send coffee and Allstate gift cards. You would be surprised what you can get when they send all their new residents to you for the mandatory renters insurance. Snowballs that bundle game.

    Advice to Management

    Any smart producer knows exactly what their agency owner is making off of the policies we write. Stop being stingy and PAY EXCEEDINGLY. We work our tails off to build your bob.

    Pros

    Respected brand name. Full suite of insurance products. Established customer base to cross sell.

    I worked at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    Offers a lot of PTO time
    Managers care about you doing well and you as a person. I always felt I was heard and was always able to get the help I needed.
    Great pay

    Cons

    Seniority made getting time off difficult at times
    Working through some holidays
    Saturday duty each month
    Heavy work load

    Advice to Management

    At times it felt like things weren’t being fully communicated with staff and I feel like that frustrated people. Overall I liked management but think that communication among the office with company changes as a whole needed improvement.
