I worked at Allstate full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good corporate culture, good PTO, opportunities to learn new things, very career supportive.

Cons

In claims we worked some nights and weekends, if you could not move you could not advance any higher than a supervisor type position, working with injured people who are trying to bleed you dry is kind of a drag after a while, it leaves you jaded.

Advice to Management

Upper management seemed to be very knoweledgeable and open about what was going on.

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

    Pros

    It is a great company for working moms. It offers flexible schedule, two days per week working from home, health club, several cafeterias, etc. Company offers a lot of PTO (Paid Time Off: vacation + sick days). Employees are offered to buy additional 5 PTO days per year and can transfer 5 days from previous year.

    Cons

    Salaries rise extremely slow, and it is very difficult to grow into management position unless you have strong connections. Business has tendency to get outsourced to India and Europe regardless the cost of re-work. Company lays off employees periodically (approximately once per 18 - 24 months).

    Advice to Management

    It is just a philosophical food for thought: people are more important than all money, stock price, etc in the world.
