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

Pros

A lot of development opportunities especially early on, lots of opportunity to move around to different finance areas, quickly learn basic corporate finance skills that translate to other departments and industries easily

Cons

after a few years your progress/ development stagnates, start to feel like you are re-doing the same project over and over b/c management does not have a clear picture of what they want, start to feel like the work you're doing adds no value

Advice to Management

focus more on the big picture and the end goal and try to work towards it instead of getting caught up in the smaller details

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation, benefits, work environment, honest dealings with customers & agents , Agency Proposition Value is best in class with opportunity to create generational wealth. Great support , if you want to be with the best then join Allstate.

    Cons

    Sometimes in the cross hairs of public due to general view of insurance industry, general peeks & valley's of business, can't say anything else negative. It's all Good.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing now, don't over complicate things, stay focused on the 2 most important cog's: Customers & Agent's who support our shared vision

    Pros

    Lots of resources; talent; company is solid

    Cons

    Big company syndrome -- lots of layers and poltics; protecting of turfs; breeding of mediocrity.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable for their responsibilities and move them out when they fail. This will change the culture to one of achievement.
