Freedom to work independently

Liability Determination Unit managers allow you to disperse funds on your own. They keep you on a “second look” review until you are prepared to work more independently in both liability and monetary dispersement to help you from making errors. Prevents both company losses and negative surveys and reviews against the company.

Gender Equality

Many of my co-workers that were women were promoted to bodily injury positions.

Attitude towards older colleagues

My co-worker was treated well by co-workers and managers (customer service leaders).

Career Development

They put you through “claims college” where they train you for all careers.

Overall compensation for your work

Good for entry-level and non-experience in the field.

Office / Work Environment

Very friendly. Not too conservative on Language and controversial topics. On the phone yes, but not in the clinical spaces between workers. Made for a relaxed work-environment. Many workplace initiatives were headed by employees and birthday celebrations as well. You can put a pie in the face of your manager as a reward for high-performance.

Environmental Friendliness

Very nice friendliness. My favorite part about working there.

Company Image

They are customer service based and improved their stock value as a result.

Job Security

If you accomplish your metrics properly your job is secure. They do regular performance reviews so you know how you’re doing.

Handicapped Accessibility

They helped me with my FMLA claims as soon as I was eligible per Federal Law.

Workplace Safety

They had locked doors in which each employee had key cards to enter with security at the entrance.

Challenging Work

Keeps your mind engaged. Very challenging. Makes the day go by fast. Use of critical thinking skills.

Inclusive / Diverse

This was the most diverse workplace I’ve ever been a part of. Over 55, several ethnic backgrounds, and LGBTQ orientations.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More competitive salaries with national averages for the company.

What I like about the company

Really nice and understanding management. They correct, not critique. You can tell they’re trying to help versus criticize.

What I dislike about the company

No comment.

Company Culture

COMPANY OFFERS A RELAX ENVIRONMENT WHERE ALL EMPLOYEES ARE ABLE TO BE THEMSELVES IN A PROFESSIONAL SETTING.

Support from management

MANAGEMENT OFFERS 100% SUPPORT AT ALL TIMES. THEY ARE THERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AND ASSIST IN CLOSING THE SALE IF NECESSARY,

Teamwork

EVERYONE WORKS AS A TEAM TOWARDS MEETING COMPANY OBJECTIVES. INCOMING CALLS ARE DISTRIBUTED FAIRLY AND IF ONE REPRESENTATIVE IS UNABLE TO HANDLE A CALL THEY WILL TRANSFER IT TO A MORE KNOWLEDGEABLE REPRESENTATIVE.

Freedom to work independently

ONCE YOU SIT AT YOUR DESK YOU HAVE THE FREEDOM TO WORK INDEPENDENTLY AS LONG AS YOU WORK IN THE BOUNDS OF ALLSTATE POLICY AND REGULATIONS. NO ONE IS LOOKING OVER YOU SHOULDER OR OFFERING UNWANTED SUGGESTIONS.

Internal Communication

COMPANY COMMUNICATES WITH EMPLOYEES DAILY. SETTING SALES GOALS AND INCENTATIVES FOR MEETING THOSE GOALS.

Gender Equality

GENDER EQUALITY IS ONE ITS LEAST PROBLEMS. WOMAN AND MAN ARE TREATED EQUAL FROM MY EXPERIENCE.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I'VE WORKED WITH OLDER COLLEAGUES AND THE ARE MORE USEFUL THEN THE YOUNGER ONES. WITHOUT THEM IT MAKES IT HARDER TO NAVIGATE THE INTRICATE PARTS OF ALLSTATE SYSTEM. THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE ALLSTATE CULTURE

Career Development

WE ARE OFFERED SEVERAL CLASSES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR TO ASSIST IN OUR CAREER DEVELOPMENT.

Overall compensation for your work

COMPENSATION COULD ALWAYS BE A LITTLE MORE BUT FOR THE MOST PART IT IS FAIR OVERALL.

Office / Work Environment

ALLSTATE OFFERS A PROFESSIONAL, FRIENDLY WORK ENVIRONMENT WHERE YOU CAN COME IN AND FELL COMFORTABLE GETTING YOUR WORK COMPLETED,

Environmental Friendliness

EVERYONE SPEAKS IN THE MORNING WHEN ARRIVING AT WORK AND SOMETIMES COFFEE AND DONUTS ARE THERE TO GREAT YOU. EMPLOYEE ATTITUDES ARE RARE AND USUALLY DURING THE MID DAY DURING A CALL WITH A FRUSTRATING CLIENT. EMPLOYEES USUALLY QUICKLY GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON.

Work-Life Balance

WORK LIFE BALANCE IS VERY DURABLE. TIME IS VERY FLEXIBLE AND USUALLY YOU GET OFF ON TIME, UNLESS YOU ARE FINISHING UP WITH A CUSTOMER. YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO TAKE YOUR WORK HOME WITH YOU BUT ONLY IF YOU CHOOSE.

Company Image

COMPANY HAS A GREAT IMAGE AMONG THE PUBLIC BECAUSE OF OUR LEADERSHIP AND EMPLOYEES, WE TREAT EVERYONE FAIR AND WITH RESPECT, NO MATTER HOW SMALL OR LARGE THE ISSUE MAY BE.

Job Security

JOB SECURITY HAS NEVER BEEN A WORRY OF MINE DUE TO THE STABILITY OF THE OFFICE AND ITS LEADERSHIP.

Handicapped Accessibility

REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS ARE MADE FOR ALL OUR DISABLE EMPLOYEES AS WELL AS CLIENTS.

Workplace Safety

OFFICE REMAINS CLEAN AND SAFE AT ALL TIMES. FILES AND BOXES ARE STORE PROPERLY.

Challenging Work

THE WORK AT TIMES CAN BE CHALLENGING BUT NEVER OVERWHELMING. ALL JOB OFFER CHALLENGING WORK ASSIGNMENTS BUT WE PUT OUT FEET TO THE METAL AND GET THE JOB DONE.

Inclusive / Diverse

ALLSTATE ALLOWS EVERY EMPLOYEE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE INCLUSIVE INCLUSIVE IN ALL DECISIONS AND ACTIVITIES. IT OFFERS A DIVERSE GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS, THIS IT WHAT MAKES IT AN IDEAL PLACE TO WORK.

Suggestions for improvement

  • My suggestions for improvement would be improving the cold call list so that we will have more opportunity to sell our policies to interested parties. Increasing compensation to sales representatives to motivate them to sell more products available and offer cash bonus to top sales reps per district.

What I like about the company

I enjoy tat the company allows you to operate independently apart from cooperate but still support the office in a cooperate manner.

What I dislike about the company

I dislike that sometimes cooperate representatives don't assist client to the best of their ability. This leaves the local office to deal with the backlash of cooperates mistakes.
