I have worked in the insurance industry for quite a while and can say with absolute confidence that working for Allstate was the worst experience of my life.
Sales jobs are not easy and cold calling,networking and learning to deal with the stress is integral to the job and to be expected but the management at Allstate have unrealistic targets from day one.Considering that they have very strict underwriting guidelines and a very specific target market,they should not be so hard on the new employees and atleast give them some time to learn the business and build it up.Not sure how they have been voted employee of the year,maybe the majority of the employees who were part of the vote were in non sales roles and happy but the BDA's are treated like machines.Agency managers are solely concerned with bringing in more business and worst of all if someone is unable to write sufficient business or struggling to meet targets,they are ridiculed,given no support or coaching and then fired.Those at the top care little as long as the company is churning profits.Managers also play employees against each other,do little to dissipate tensions hence contributing to a very unhealthy and toxic work environment My humble request to anyone thinking of joining Allstate as a BDA,please think twice and only go ahead if you already have an established network from which you can draw good business and are willing to have very little work life balance as well as a negative working environment with little job security.
