    Stop paying by item, paying by premium motivates much more.

    Current Employee - Sales Representative in Carrollton, TX

    I have been working at Allstate full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Commissions are pretty good. Good pay structure

    Cons

    No stability, no benefits, ran by individual owners who do things they're own way (sometimes not the right way) and expect you to handle all of their complaints.

    Pros

    Solid Fortune 100 company with a small business vibe. You work in a small agency, but have the backing of a large established corporation with a household name. The pay is alright, there are small raises for hourly pay as you get licensed in different areas. The commissions are small, but there are quite a few sales to be made. It is fairly stable, but you will never make a big deal or a large commission.... Opportunity to become an agency owner if you can attain the required $100,000 in capital. Agency owners actually own their book of business and can either sell the book of business or pass it on to family when they decide to retire or do something else.

    Cons

    No chance of closing a "big deal". No benefits.

  7. "Agency sales producer"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Allstate

    Pros

    Good training, great place to learn the business if you are working for a decent agent. Will learn sales and service ends which helps understand the workings of the agency.

    Cons

    Usually no benefits, low mobility, regional sales leaders do not help the agencies, only try to sell marketing packages to the agent. Ever changing comp/bonus structures from corporate keep you scrambling for new ways to make your wage.

    Advice to Management

    Quit moving the goal posts around so much. Incentives that prove successful for agency and Allstate too often disappear

    Pros

    There is a semi regular work schedule which can make planning your week fairly easy.

    Cons

    The various departments of the company have terrible communication. You can call underwriting about a customer issue and they give you an answer which turns out to be completely wrong. The rep will tell you something is approved, you write it and then 7 days later it is not approved. When you call back you get a different person that gives you an entirely different answer. The same goes for billing. The systems the... company use do not integrate and they are extremely outdated. There is almost no support for new Agency owners from corporate. The agency owners typically pay poorly hourly, you make the bulk of your money off of commission, however 70% of your day may be dedicated to service, billing and underwriting issues leaving little to no time for actually making sales. You end up sacrificing your own financial security in order to retain business. The systems look like theyre 20 years old and are not user friendly at all. Depending on your agency owner you may get no benefits, medical or dental or even vacation time. All in all this is one of the absolute worst companies I have ever worked for. The corporate departments are a joke. Underwriting and billing give a different answer every single time you talk to them and the company does not give agents relevant updates. I can not wait to find a new job and get out of this horrible company. I am embarrassed I even put my name on these policies.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees for their work! If you own the agency make sure you have one person dedicated to service so your sales agents don't have to waste their time cleaning up policy issues and can actually earn some money.
