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

Pros

People are very friendly and easy to get along with. It is very laid back and a good work environment. They take work/life balance very seriously and care about your well being.

Cons

The compensation starts off very low. You can be doing the same thing with another company and make two times more money. The workload doesn't match the compensation for some positions.

Advice to Management

Increase the salaries

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great work-life balance
    - Development opportunities if you perform well
    - Good benefits

    Cons

    - Pay doesn't keep pace with responsibility
    - With the company shrinking, opportunities will likely decrease

    Advice to Management

    Do whatever it takes to grow the business - if that means cuts in the short-term, fine. The current strategy simply means a long slow decline.

    I worked at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    The people are very welcoming and friendly. There are an unlimited number of opportunities to be creative, innovative and help the company grow.

    Cons

    The downside to Allstate is that they think about career progressions very linearly. If you are hired as a financial analyst, you will follow the same career path that countless others have followed. They lack the HR wherewithal and creativity to identify or validate the true value in peoples' abilities outside of prescribed position requirements.

    If you want mobility at Allstate, make sure you are hired into the area that you truly want to work in long-term.

    Advice to Management

    Create better practices for identifying internal talent. The old ways still get the same results.

    When will you goofs learn that it's more important to have someone who want to kill it at the job than someone who has the specific knowledge?
