    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.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example and not be in a closed office and stare at production numbers all day. Join agents in quoting/servicing and provide guidance and training on a regular basis especially to veteran agents who think they know it all.

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