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)

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

    Pros

    Weekends off. Base salary. No limits on bonuses if you perform well. Lots of agencies to work for. Nice coworkers for the most part but high turnover.

    Cons

    Allstate auto in my area is so expensive it's rarely competitive with Geico and Progressive. Sometimes two and three times the premium. Lots of micromanaging. If I sell lots of homeowners and flood it's not enough because they want the auto too but it's all about the lowest premium. No multi policy discounts for auto because we use expanded market carriers. Many agencies in my area have closed and agents opened independent agencies.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up on the micro management. Nobody like that and most will leave. Allstate corporate needs to find ways to get the auto premiums down to be competitive.
