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

Pros

Allstate will not go out of business any time soon. The company is predictable, stable, and provides some job security. Most of the jobs are not very exciting, but not very demanding either. You will get a many vacation days, and a lot of flexibility on work schedule.

Cons

Pay is below average, and do not expect any big raises. Performance review is predetermined based on force ranking by upper management. If your immediate manager is new or not well liked, you are out of luck. Any challenge to status quo will be ignored or punished.

Advice to Management

There really is not much management can do. Management by fear may work in short term, but it will eventually get old and people will leave.
