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

    Pros

    Diversity. Willing to adapt to needs of new generation of employees. Salary structure allows for compensating older employees well for time in grade.

    Cons

    New employees in claims get a huge workload. Those that survive can find advancement after min 2+ years.

    Advice to Management

    Get management out in field and settling clains for 30 day min every year to stay relevant. Stop talking about great customer service and honestly try to deliver some. Be better advocates for your people.
