    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Allstate as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Access to Exclusive Agents book of business for property and casualty customers which can range from 300 to 5000 households per agency. Free office space and use of all business equipment. Friendly support staff in local agencies.

    Cons

    Allstate isn't completely committed to the EFS program. Support for EFS is limited. Main focus is on Exclusive Agents. Also, Exclusive Agents aren't intelligent on the finacial services industry.
    Life insurance and fixed annuities are proprietory products of Allstate and rates aren't competitive in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Support EFS in relationships with EA's. Please don't allow EA's to treat EFS like they are disposable commodities.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Allstate full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to start your insurance career, solid training and development programs. Opportunities for advancement, especially at the new and middle management levels.

    Cons

    CEO and some senior leaders can't seem to decide what they want the company to be, shifting priorities or just not prioritizing at all, seem to get enchanted by the idea of the day. Too much reliance on consultants and outside talent.
