    Pros

    Outstanding Benefits and with a solid Pension Plan for long term growth. Employee Resource Business Groups, Online Learning, Long Term Career Path. Company is production based so you have to work hard but the rewards are worth it. Community Service Hours can be given back to your organization in a form of a cash donation by Allstate. They have big heart on Community Service. Most Teams have yearly outings. Internal Promotions are good. Access to Allstate Benefits Services and Financial Planning products are outstanding. Legal Plan Benefits, Outstanding Supplemental Health coverage benefits. Allstate is for someone who wants a 20 to 30 year career growth. Strong branding and leadership keeps you posted on company growth each quarter.

    Cons

    Base Salary is lower than other insurance companies, but the benefits make up for the difference. High turnover in leadership. Productions environment so numbers are the key, to survive you must produce. Health Care plans can be very costly on out of pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Less leadership turnover and provide a solid career path even when potions are not available. Cross Company opportunities need to be available between the brands. Hourly associates need the ability to work from home like other major insurance carriers.
