    Pros

    You can purchase the "book of business" from the former agent. Which means you will need. Cash 50K to 1M or a bank loan. You then become the owner of the income stream from the policies.

    Cons

    You (the new agent) become responsible for all rent,phone, employees, advertising, marketing, supplies, taxes, the debt load could become unmanageable....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The agent should get the benefit for "every policy" the agent sell. Stop using vacations as incentive, in my opinion "vacation" incentive in from the past and in not appropriate for all agents

    Allstate is schizophrenic. Technology is clunky.

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

    Pros

    I had wonderful and talented coworkers. In 10 years I had 9 different managers and a few of them were good.

    Cons

    Allstate changes direction constantly. Management wastes time and money. They do not deploy employees effectively. Rewards are not consistent. The past few years have seen only take aways for the average employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the many layers of bureaucracy and trust your employees. Management talks a lot about valuing employees but then outsources and lays them off without attempting to redeploy human resources.
