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

    Pros

    Decent base salary although bonuses could be much better.

    Cons

    Tons of micromanagement. Extremely old-school in approach to sales. Daily outbound call/quote quotas. Managers willing to break provincial regulations.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    -Work from home -Most managers are very good, will not micro manage you -Good pay and bonus structure

    Cons

    -Less vacation time than industry standard. Most companies add 1 week after 5 years and another week after 10 years. At Allstate you will have to wait 8 years and then 20 years for more vacation time -You will have to work on Family Day -Horrible technology (they do not have ClaimCenter like every insurance company). It will take you a lot longer to adjudicate every claim, slow systems and you have to use at least 3 systems on ever claim. -Poor benefits (you have to pay a portion of your benefits. No parental leave top up. No short term disability available)

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Allstate full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Salary is reasonable for an entry level position. Working at an Allstate office can make you feel as part of a family/team. Work variety is good - can meet with customers face-to-face (on a walk-in basis), over the phone, or by email. Underwriting, IT, and Operations back-end support are there to help. Career opportunities are present and opportunities to get an education (especially to pursue CIP designation) are there and greatly encouraged.

    Cons

    Management can be very rigid and corporate. Throughout a regular workday the volume of tasks and communication required can be extremely demanding and overwhelming. Negativity surrounding insurance and having to deal with emotions demands more training in Emotional Intelligence (not provided). Training is extremely subpar. Intranet is extremely unorganized and not easy to navigate.
