Great Career, Awful Senior Management

Business Development Agent (Former Employee)
Peterborough, ON

I worked at Allstate full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat training and trainers, excellent salary/draw relative to position, great brand development, excellent resources.

The salary and training are excellent. The training specifically is fantastic, best preparation with training I've ever had for a position.

ConsTerrible Human Resources, limited logistics related to limitations of business opportunities. Not much common sense put into business decisions.

The Human Resources department is ethically and morally devoid. Regional Management was the same.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees like human beings and work to resolve, not discard issues.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
