    I worked at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    Solid work environment with good pay. Everyone in the office was friendly and easy to work along side of. You can listen to any music that you like while working

    Cons

    Not a lot of windows in the office so it feels a bit stuffy in there. The boss is very busy and sometimes hard to get a chance to speak with her.

    Advice to Management

    Create more time to talk to your employees during the day, and keep up the great work environment. Low stress is a bonus
