    I have been working at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    Good workplace, the building I work at has a nice cafeteria and there is a gym in the building next to mine.

    Cons

    Apparently if you work in catastrophe claims you can't move up unless you have been here for a year which I feel is unecessary and is driving employees like me to go work else where!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much politics.. same as any other big company.

    I worked at Allstate as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Clear chain of command
    Nice campus that included a good gym and a good cafeteria
    Decent workspace

    Cons

    I hate to admonish an entire organization for the behavior of one supervisor, but the fact that this person was a lifelong "Allstater," and was allowed to persist in some of the most destructive managerial practices I have ever witnessed certainly speaks to the wisdom and judgment of their leadership as a whole. I watched on in horror numerous times as this person diminished and abused her underlings in at times almost comical fashion. But no one was laughing. Indeed, I walked out of a meeting in which she brought another woman I worked with to tears -- literally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solicit feedback about superiors from not only FT Allstate staff but also contractors and take that feedback seriously. At least one of them is bringing contractors in to use as her own personal scratching posts.
