    Current Employee - Agency Support Representative in Northbrook, IL (US)

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

    Pros

    Certain areas have experience managers that will empower the team to move forward and closer to their professional goal.
    Good benefits overall.

    Cons

    Company-wide policies are sometimes ignored in some departments.
    Strong micro-management presence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate, cross-train and put down in writing the responsibilities/limitations of each position open to other employees. There's a lot of confusion with that generating extra work in every department involved and frustration on the agent/customer.

    I have been working at Allstate

    Pros

    This is a company that rewards excellence and innovation and puts customer satisfaction as a top priority. Emphasizes the importance of ethical behavior and recognizes the advantages of diversity in the workplace. It has been my privilege to serve Allstate as a staff counsel in the field for 17 years and I look forward to many more years of satisfying the legal needs of its customers. Compensation, comprehensive benefits and a genuine recognition of the need for work-life balance.

    Cons

    Only those common to a corporation of its size,, mainly bureaucratic in nature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    Reputable company. Good pay. Helpful area managers that will train Or help in any way to help you meet quotas

    Cons

    Meeting the life insurance quota since there are financial specialist that actually go through the sales process so If life specialist is slacking with the business you bring to them it falls back on not meeting your monthly quota
