I worked at Allstate as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Continual training, friendly environment, beautiful building, catered lunches for training, Support from all levels of management at corporate.

Cons

Individual agencies vary. Some have it together, others don't. Hope you get with the right one.

Advice to Management

Keep Agents active. Don't let them be absent or disconnected. Their leadership is needed. Keep them at the top of their game, don't let them slip.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Plenty of opportunities for in-house training if you're given the time
    -The people are nice
    - You can work here forever
    - Plenty of 'perks' (starbucks, gym, doctor's office, pharmacy)

    Cons

    - Pay is dismal, raises are practically non-existant
    - VERY MINIMAL opportunity for growth, even if you're early on in your career
    - Have to practically beg for stretch assignments or interesting projects
    - Under-performers are praised for staying in line and stay at Allstate for their entire careers
    - If you work hard, don't expect to get praise or recognition for it. Your boss will present your work on your behalf and take all of the credit!
    - Work-life balance is dismal
    - Zero stability, I'm on my 5th manager in 9 months

    Advice to Management

    -All the perks (as described above) are putting a bandaid on a sinking ship. High potential employees aren't going to stay at Allstate because of the Starbucks. We're going to stay because we have opportunities to grow and challenge ourselves professionally. Start paying, promoting, and developing your HiPos or you'll lose them in a hurry.

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

    Pros

    Great pay, lots of vacation. Work/life balance, relaxed atmosphere. Loved the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Outsourcing became a problem. Allstate really went off track when they started outsourcing & laying off their people that had experience. It's sad when greed takes over and it happens in many companies these days. They do not put their customers first because how many people complain about calling c/s & getting someone they do not understand on the other line. Allstate lost their focus & will pay for it because they are losing customers big time. Management had to met their budget in order to get their big bonuses while all the people they laid off did all the meaningful work. Agents are not happy with how corporate is handling alot of thing.

    Advice to Management

    know the value of your employees. You have someone sitting behind a big, expensive desk making these decisions to lay off people & have no idea the impact it will have.
