Reviews for Allstate Insurance Company

Reviews - What employees say

3.12 Employees say
3.22 Applicants say

Overall Compensation for your work

Outrageously good benefits - after 8 years I get 35 PTO days per year, health, dental, vision, disability, life and other insurance, 401k (they match 5%) AND a pension, legal, and employee discounts. VERY unusual to find in non-union areas.

Work-Life Balance

My only complaint centers around having to work EVERY Saturday, unless you can somehow manage to get PTO/vacation time. With our office in the University area, there's no reason Allstate can't take advantage of the students living near by or others who are seeking part-time work if they want to continue a 24/7 call center operation AND offer their full-time employees a better and much needed work-life balance.
