I worked at Allstate full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Really great company. Great support staff (headquarters) and great associates. They help you with everything from detailed information about the products to assistance with sales.

Cons

I worked in the NYC area, and their underwriting guidelines made it so difficult to write business let alone compete with other carriers.

Advice to Management

When they loosen up some of their underwriting regulations, they will be a force to reckon with. Great financial standing, great company but bad product.

    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.
