"Allstate, especially in Marketing and Corporate Relations, is a company filled with perks. It's a great place to be if you're not caught up in politics or surrounded by toxic personalities. Being surrounded by that day in and day out is draining and a waste of resources, and it oftentimes is tolerated."
"Large company. High Turnover. Does not value dedication and loyalty. Good company to learn the insurance business, and then get out. If you stay too long, your growth will be stifled instead of nurtured and you won't realize it because the company is so segmented that the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Be careful of who you report to. One "green" manager can make or break your career. Performance can be evaluated very subjectively. Make sure you CYA."
"All around great company to work for."
"The company was really not willing to invest in the consulting staff they brought in. This may have been due to being on the verge of bringing in some Indian consulting companies. The FTE staff were unfriendly and not co-operative making it very difficult to complete task. Another consultant was brought in a few weeks after me. Despite being very unpopular with the staff, she was kept for 3 months after my contract ended. This seemed a very curious decision as I felt I was accepted by the staff a bit more."
"Great place to work at, especially if you are in the Northbrook headquarters, a lot of opportunities to grow within the company, as the company offers all the tools you need to improve your skills or learn new ones. Work-life balance is great, company promotes balancing your life, also offers many family-oriented events throughout the year."
"I have worked in the sales / marketing field for well over 8 years with a proven sales goal record."
"I have worked at The Cox Agency for 5 years, which is Allstate. I started out as a receptionist at $10 an hour. I was required to get my insurance license and once I did I now make $11.75 an hour. It is ridiculous!"
"I loved working for the company, the atmosphere was very friendly."
"While Allstate Insurance is a great place to work for many, the opportunities to continue to improve and develop are slim in the realm of Information Technology. The supervisors are great, the pay is decent, and the workplace really is laid back and they do appreciate you as employees, however they simply cannot create enough jobs to keep developing their IT force and most of the promotions received are only done so through waiting on another employee to retire or quit."
"I worked for Allstate company located in Chicago, IL since Dec 2012 - till date."
"Worked there for a couple of years and definitely in a dept. that had preferential treatment and definite favorites. I had worked under 6 managers in a couple of years in which TWO, had voluntarily stepped down because of a disagreement over ostensible, hypocritical work practices. Work/Life balance was suitable, benefits were sub par in industry along with pay, which was definitely on the lower end especially for claims adjusting. Heavy corporate culture. Office was ALWAYS dirty."
"In my 3+ years at ADS, I've been promoted twice which is not hard to accomplish within that environment. That being said, I appreciate the upward mobility, however there isn't a Policy and Procedure manual for any department within company. This leads to confusion and dissension among the Business Units and exposes the staff's inability to expertly do their job. I would recommend full expertise in your field should you find it appealing to seek employment there."
"Great place to work. The benefits are great. Work hard and you will go far. There are schools in 17 different states so you can transfer or get promoted any where. Best of luck to you."
"This position is more of an entry level job. There are no advancement opportunities or a path to advancement. It is a great company and the systems, training and process are excellent."
