Pretty good management, the management is really good and are always available as support systems to agents. Personally, just think there should be more support, not enough support for agents.
Pros
Good Management
Cons
Rough customers

The focus is all about your network and your activity level in this role. If your sales numbers are low they place a lot of pressure on you to sell. Drivers are rated on a tier system and this makes closing a sale difficult.

A very friendly work environment; and easy to interact with co-workers across the organization. Upper management in IT encourages IT folks to learn new tools and technology.

Many programs are evolving. There have been many changes organizationally in recent years, departmentally and with senior leadership. Like any company, some areas adapt better than others.

Change in benefits/retirement benefits results in long term employees (over 10 years) seeing a significant financial loss. These are the same employees who have contributed to the company's current financial success. Senior leadership has yet to address why their longest serving employees must bear this cost. But seeing the company's current financial success it's easy to figure out the answer - corporate greed.

There was too much in-fighting and favouritism amongst department members with no support from management. Work was not distributed equally, while some did too much work and some too little again with no consequences.

Leadership team does not value long term dedicated employees, very poor levels of employee engagement, ineffective management, high employee turn over and unrealistic work demands producing stressful and unhappy work environment.

Great place to work and lots of opportunities for advancement. Recognized as both an individual and as part of a Team. Hardest part of the job for some would be cold calling clients.
Pros
LOTS of opportunity and support from EVERYONE.
Cons
None

It was very difficult to build and maintain sales momentum due to tight underwriting guidelines and unwillingness to compete on price even for top-tier clients.

With that said, agents in larger centers can perform very well. If you can sell 200% or more to your premium plan consistently, Allstate's commission structure can be very rewarding.

A typical day includes lots of phone calls, preparing quotes,and following up with Underwriting.
And then follow up with Underwriting again.

Customers WILL omit things, thinking they can get away with omissions. Hardest part of the job is working on a policy only to have underwriting kill it.


Prospecting is horrendous, the general public perception of receiving a non-solicited phone call is not very good, so make every effort to make personal contact if you can.
