I have been working at Allstate as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

(ARPC) Relaxed environment, extremely talented but friendly people, given very exciting work that will likely have big impact on the future of the business, and adequately challenged. Overall a great place to work.

Cons

Only con for me was that I didn't get to see the headquarters!

Advice to Management

Keep coming to the ARPC for ideas. A lot of innovation comes from this place!

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * The S.A. Call Center is a great way to leave "call centers" and move into "corporate America" if you have the focus to do so (especially if you are open to the prospect of moving to Illinois, North Carolina, or Idaho

    * If you want to stay on they phones you can make decent money via the bonus structure
    (they do change bonus formula about every 6 months but good agents don't normally have an income drop because of this)

    * People in this city are so stuck on call center mentality that if you go in and work like you are on Wall Street it's impossible to not get noticed.

    * Lots of vacation time

    * Pays you to get your P&C licenses

    * 80% 401k match upto 5% of your income

    Cons

    * You must own your own development. There are a handful of really sharp people in the sight but its upto you to find them and learn from them

    * Less than 20% of the ON SITE Leadership Team is good at/takes their job seriously

    * It's almost impossible to get fired unless you're really trying to do just that

    * Office politics are the order of the day if you want to advance

    Advice to Management

    * Take an honest assessment of the leadership team in every department. Who's moved on and who's stayed?

    * Leverage the handful of pros in the site and reward them in proportion to the task they perform. Who are the 10% who do 90% of the heavy lifting?

    * Stop the rotation abuse culture that has been there for the past 3 years. Look at the great budding leaders that have parted ways rather than chasing the carrot. How many more of your best leaders do you want to lose?

    hire more reps for the amount of workload for better customer service
