Support from management

Manager was great. Upper management, losy sight of customer service and focus what was important. Customer service. Both internal and external.

Teamwork

I was very lucky to have a unit with a great team and leader. Many people were willing to help. Others were not.

Internal Communication

Immediate supervisor was very good at communicating. Sense that upper management had much going on behind the scenes.

Attitude towards older colleagues

No issues from peers on this that I ever witnessed.

Career Development

Good if you were in either the right people. Others passed up for promotions that we're more qualified.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay was good. Time off was great. Benefits overall good. Out of pocket cost seem to go up each year for health, etc.

Office / Work Environment

Crowded. Loud.

Environmental Friendliness

Did a lot of external volunteer work and fundraising. Was proud to be a part of that.

Work-Life Balance

Great PTO. Mgr very understanding with personal situations. However, it was difficult to manage work load if you took time off.

Challenging Work

High volume. High stress level. Low morale for many people

Inclusive / Diverse

One of the only things I can say that never changed. Very positive.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get back to focusing on the customer and not the numbers. Find a way to keep the good people so the turnover rate goes down. Promote people based on their ability.

What I like about the company

The team I worked with, PTO, manager was great.

What I dislike about the company

Low moral, too many numbers to focus on. High stress level

Company Culture

Was excited. Changed over the last few years. Employee turnover made it difficult to define the culture

Support from management

My immediate supervisor was excellent and very supportive

Teamwork

Teamwork was excellent until people with tenure started to retire and new hires didn't last. It seemed everyone was helping themselves just to stay above water

Freedom to work independently

We had to be able to work independently. It was the best way to get the job done

Internal Communication

Good from immediate supervisor. Don't think Information above them was relayed timely or sometimes at all

Attitude towards older colleagues

There were no issues I was aware of

Office / Work Environment

Good but negativity from some made certain days or times difficult

Work-Life Balance

Good but better when I started

Inclusive / Diverse

Company was very good on diversity and high ethical standard.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get back to focusing on the customer and less on numbers. More on work/family balance and understanding of certain unusual circumstances

What I like about the company

The job was rewarding. Benefits were good. I worked with a good team

What I dislike about the company

Expectations were too high. Too many goals were numbers driven.

The company has allowed me to continue my education as part of the tuition reimbursement program. The management is encouraging and honest in their communication, and allow a good work/life balance.

The pay could be more competitive.

Company Culture

Owner provides a productive and open minded office atmosphere,

Support from management

Owner is always on site and will go out of his way to ensure everyone has all they need to do their job well.

Teamwork

Teamwork is stressed and everyone makes their time available when another agent requires assistance.

Freedom to work independently

If you are an experienced agent you you only get help when you ask for it. He knows his employees and what their abilities are and let’s them work independently unless help is requested .

Internal Communication

It’s encouraged to utilize the entire staff to benefit from their knowledge and make everyone more productive and profitable.

Gender Equality

If you can be effective at your job it doesn’t matter what background you come from ‘

Attitude towards older colleagues

Again reference the answer above.

Career Development

Larger City that offers its challenges but owner does the best job he can to see those who want to raise the ranks are given every opportunity to display they are suitable for advancement.

Overall compensation for your work

Employees are paid not only a commission but s salary as well.

Office / Work Environment

The office is only a couple years old so it is well decorated and maintained.

Environmental Friendliness

Everyone gets along with everyone else. Sure there is a disagreement from time to time but is always addressed promptly and in a professional matter.

Work-Life Balance

Owner expects you to be on time and put In your hours but goes out of his way to make sure you have the personal time you need.

Company Image

Allstate is a National Company with sound earnings and a variety of products to offer their customer to best meet the needs of the consumer.

Job Security

Owner is committed to his employees and will only seek dismissal in the event of a serious infraction.

Handicapped Accessibility

Office is slightly lacking in addressing issues that may be detrimental for someone with a handicap affiliation.

Workplace Safety

Safety is addressed on a monthly basis and all employees must attend.

Challenging Work

Yes the insurance industry is a very competitive market and requires top efforts to maintain a position for a long term basis.

Inclusive / Diverse

The group of employees are mostly from the same economical background and their is very little diversity.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Office location could be situated more favorably to take every advantage over the competition.

What I like about the company

Great training, employees who work together in a commission based industry.

What I dislike about the company

Insurance sales is a very competitive industry and requires attention to details in all areas of the the work but there are still companies who will undercut you in order to eliminate you as compitition in any way possible .

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.

  • Teansition periods when making changes in technology and less emailsg

What I like about the company

My bosses have an open door policy about anything work or personal. The environment and company culture are great with a good mix of seasoned employees and young employees straight out of college. I personally won an award for my performance at work in which the company paid for a trip to Disney to attend a conference as well as free hotel, park hopper passes specially company only events, a doubie brothers concert and airfare.

What I dislike about the company

When making changes especially with technology they happen over night, theirs no transition and the lack of transition upsets our customers

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would recommend a better efforts by the Human Resource depart to complete consistent market analysis for pay, an enhanced PTO bank (since the allottment includes sick time as well), a more comparable parental leave policy to other companies of similar size.

What I like about the company

I received a free car seat for my infant through our benefits program, great opportunities to lead from all levels, opportunities to earn performance bonuses, fair PTO bank (even for new employees), great opportunities to earn wellness incentive pay for health savings contributions, comprehensive health benefits, 401k, Pension, continuous employee appreciation initiatives.

What I dislike about the company

I feel the company could do a better job of completing more comprehensive market analysis to provide more competitive pay. The pay is very low in comparison to the amount of work, and in comparison to what competitors pay their staff for similar work.

  • I don't have anything specific to add on this.

What I like about the company

I love this company in that they are very transparent about changes being made, whether positive or negative. They provide the necessary tools and information someone would need to do their job effectively, and managers that genuinely care about you as an individual and help employees work toward their goals.

What I dislike about the company

In the segment that I work in, there is often shifting around with management staff, thus taking on new managers and waiting for them to be trained in a certain area. This causes a bit of anxiety in some cases.

What I like about the company

What I dislike about the company

The health insurance offered as an employee leaves a lot to be desired, paired with under average pay. More than 1/4 of my income goes towards medical including bi-weekly payments and deductibles.
