I'll put things into perspective. I have been with Allstate (2 years) and I have achieved a lot, I consistently exceed all my performance and customer service goals. I was asked and am working on some regional projects and recently won the DPA award(Big prestigious award).
My main issues
- In order for me and the other performers in my office to achieve the expected goals we have to work many extra 'un-paid' hours. These goals force us to work well beyond 12 hour days at times.
- Starting Salary is average for the industry, Allstate the slowest to give senior/associate pay/title.
- When it comes to goals Allstate has an 'Act 1st, research and adjust after we have determined raises' attitude.
- Allstate says they are 'pay for performance'. An entry level employee that smokes almost everyone in the region in the numbers can expect what equates to a $1500 y/r raise. While 20+ year employees can expect a very good salary for minimal quality.
-The pay band structure is completely broken. I have a perfect example. I asked my manager this questions. "Lets say I was applying for a job at Allstate. Lets say we keep all of my experience, skills, and performance the same just replace the word Allstate with State Farm. If I applied for a job right now, would you offer me my current wage or more." Her response completely shocked me. Alot more.
This is what is wrong with the entry level of Allstate, no wonder why so many people are unhappy and leave in the beginning.
Allstate is a GREAT company for the 5+ year crowd. Great pay at that point, benefits are very good, PTO is amazing.
