    I worked at Allstate full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and advancement. Very diverse culture.

    Cons

    Executive Territory Leadership turns a blind eye on unethical sales practices by agents in the territory. Only goal is to hit a number. Relationships with customers are broken and retention a lot higher than reported. Sets false expectations for new business owners.

    Advice to Management

    Have a hands on compliance department that travels the territory to see how agents are hitting their numbers. Need to look a agent reviews as well when unethical sales are mentioned. Live into the discipline process and not footprint or sales goals.

    Pros

    - The best part of working here in Chandler, AZ is the people here. You can walk to almost any department sit down and talk with someone about their job and how to get to where they are at. People are very positive and willing to help new employees on boarding.
    - Lots of room for growth. Out of my 8 team members 2 of them have been promoted in the last month. Both have been with the company for less than a year the other less than six months.
    - My personal favorite is the transparency. Your performance is posted on a board where everyone can see (yes strange at first). If your struggling in one area they will help find a way to get you back up to speed. Such as having the team cover inquiry calls for you or having an experienced adjuster sit with you and help you with your organization or process. A great environment to be in.
    -Training program is in depth with many instructors, teammates, and leaders willing to help you through the process.

    Cons

    - Workload can be challenging. You have to be proactive and extremely ORGANIZED. If you struggle with organization this is definitely not the job for you.
    - Like many customer service jobs some customers can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    - There is a heavy workload for the first line leaders. Giving more unstructured time or "free time" to leaders would give them a better opportunity to increase morale and productivity of their people.
