No opinion of CEO

I worked at Allstate full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The cafeteria on site was nice. You can earn more vacation time than a typical job. Strong emphasis on training instead of throwing you to the wolves.

Cons

It is very hard to move up in the company because so many people are doing the same job.

    I worked at Allstate as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great products in the lines of home and auto, good company name to back you up, and flexible hours.

    Cons

    No residual income for those making the sales. I don't know if that is for all locations, but the one I worked for had no residual income. People don't get into the insurance business with no salary just to constantly work day in and day out till they are spent. The new agent bonus was a joke, while training there was a $1000 a month income that was also tied to your production levels. If you are new to the profession and have no experience then how are you to produce to keep that tiny amount.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better structure in compensation to include residual income. This not only makes the agent happier, but also makes it worth their while to keep clients with the company rather than just letting them fall off the books in hopes that you can make a sale again to the person in the future.
