    Current Employee - Insurance Agent in Columbus, OH (US)

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (more than 3 years)

    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

    I have been working at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    Good people, many, many long-term employees 25+ years supporting a strong agency force. Financially stable, profitable company. Flexible work hours. Short term development opportunities to work at H/O in Northbrook. Feels like a family.

    Cons

    Even with flex start times, many exempt employees regularly work 10-12 hour days with no allowance for comp-time. As a result,work/life balance suffers. Always looking to trim expenses, educational opportunties/tuition reimbursement are often not approved. Workforce reduction over the last 5 years in the agency force as well as the regional support office has hurt morale. Salaries are average or to below average for the Seattle area. Senior management displays cliquish attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overlook loyal employees and look for ways to mentor, develop and challenge them. Be aware of a significant lack of work/life balance due to cuts in staffing Too many are being required to do the work of 2 or 3 people. Keep in mind that employee satisfaction and recognition is critical to your success. Look for ways to encourage employees to represent and advocate the Allstate brand.
