      Pros

      good people, benefits on par with the rest of industry. Some areas genuinely care about the individual employee.

      Cons

      Rapid change and culture change - not for the better. More like a "factory" feel in some departments where people are interchangeable and not as valued.

        Current Employee - Senior Claims Adjuster 

        I have been working at Allstate full-time

        Pros

        Nice people to work with Work from home Really into work life balance No micromanagement Laptop for every adjusters Company paid trip within Canada for outstanding performers

        Cons

        No development Unstable system No pension Seniority doesn't really mean anything Benefits are quite expensive You need to apply for the position to be "promoted" if the manager likes you Small raise (from $3000-$5000) to the next level Management will brush you off when not promoting you, saying you lack some specific experience, but ended up promoting someone else lacking the exact same experience

        Advice to Management

        Please promote people with capabilities, with solid foundation in SABS . If managers don't have a solid foundation, the team is going to collapse You are losing talented people because the people you promoted are not persuasive and ended up paying more to new hires with less experience. Why develop your own people and ended up giving them away?

        Pros

        Very good work/life balance. Many people have been there for years, it's can be very comfortable place to work if you're looking for a 9-5 with no career ambition.

        Cons

        Not as many career opportunities as you're led to believe. Salary/Benefits are below average. Many people have been there for years, it's can be very comfortable place to work if you're looking for a 9-5 with no career ambition. The company seems to foster this type of environment.

        Advice to Management

        There's a good amount of people in the management tier that could be let go.

        I worked at Allstate full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        The benefits and rsp at this company are great.

        Cons

        If you’re a woman in IT please stay away from Allstate Canada Group. Women are harassed all around and treated like they’re maids. The manager and directors in this company are misogynistic and condescending. I have never seen anyone work so hard to avoid working. No one here wants to work. They’re focused on company politics and gossiping. This company is run by children and will make you feel like you’re back in high...

        Advice to Management

        Fire people that refuse to work instead of hiring contractors to do their job. Value the employees that work hard and make a change by investing in them.
