if you have a policy: drop it: claims service is terrible, overworkered stressed and some work is being done in India. journalists: wake up and do your job instead of parroting public relations statements. labor: we are ripe for organizing, maybe... — read more
Eric Brandt: 5,000 adjusters quit in 10 months time (since the farsical Reduction in Force that was based on salary and the company used a third party personality test to justify). Thats a class action lawsuit waiting for the right attorney. The TG... — read more
To this day I still think that was a sick term that Allstate used to justify massive layoffs last year to spin it like it benefited employees. Ever since they have executed that plan things have went downhill.
Majority of my peers are all in the same boat. We’re patiently waiting to find that one job that will be the right fit. It’s such a shame because most of my coworkers are fantastic. But no one can deny the fact that we are all stressed the he-l out... — read more
Ugh oh God no! I wouldn’t watch to merge with Progressive. Insurance companies are all the same! Same cr-p just dressed up differently and personally the devil I know is better than the devil I don’t know. Besides between me and you there are a few... — read more
The below is sound advice from a poster in another thread. This company deserves nothing more and much less stress on ourselves. I'd imagine many of us do this same thing: I am fortunate enough to be in a role that is actually well paid for what we... — read more
I have been at allstate a few years and pre pandemic I personally liked the job. Since the pandemic and full time work from home I just don't like it. The way layoffs were handled last year I didn't respect. Plus I see the direction Allstate is going... — read more
Eric Brandt really made of fool of himself with the explanation he gave on salaries. How sad to be an EVP and not have a better answer for paying below the market value. This guy is in way over his head. To make that statement to adjusters who are... — read more
Hard work doesn’t pay off here, however, the situation is even worse when your supervisor doesn’t see how hard you actually work. It is necessary to deal with all backstabbers who are very happy to take credit for other people's work. I would love to... — read more
As a retiree, I was told that I would be notified when re-enrollment would begin. As of today, the first day of re-enrollment, myself and many others I know have not been notified. Thought this might be helpful for those that may have not be... — read more
For fu-k's sake, give this company a chance.
It’s easy when your bosses are competent, but when your bosses don’t really understand your job, then it’s not easy. For two years, I was at odds between what incompetent superiors wanted and what really needed to be done on the job. What to do... — read more
I don't believe I will work here long enough to see the new leadership, better leadership that may be able to fix this mess. Still, I wonder how the leadership that really cared about this company and its employees would do that? The question is... — read more
Allstate selling HQ as insurer embraces remote work As insurance giant Allstate puts its offices in Northbrook on the market, it's the finance industry's firmest endorsement yet of the desire to offer hybrid work after the pandemic... — read more
As a current employee of Nat Gen- it is truly criminal the way they handle claims. They practice low balling on claims. Even after you write an estimate- they tell you to offer less then the actual cost. I wish we all knew what Allstate saw in... — read more
And why? As for me personally, I would not like to see that happen.
If I had to list things that are of real value in this company, I would have to agree with another poster and say that it was just a home product. Unfortunately.
Almost 4 years into his tenure as PPL President, growth has yet to materialize. Agent, employee, and customer satisfaction at all-time lows. Margins under pressure as driving returns to pre-pandemic levels and inflation drives claim costs higher. ... — read more
I am very glad to hear about some people who have left here, that they have become very successful in other companies. There are still great people here, great teams, who are withering away in this company. I’ve worked for several insurance... — read more
I work or recently worked in it, does'nt matter. This department has never once been mentioned by the TG team, instead talk of "fraud analytics" and other nonsense. We have something called an "MRR" which my peers know is complete BS so much that... — read more
Whenever they are saying it is good for the employees or the customer, the translation is it is good for the stockholder. Which means it is good for Wilson, Shapiro, Rizzo, Gupta, Williams, Parsons, Brandt, etc. They could care less about any of you... — read more
I am no longer with your company after many years. I have no animosity but continue to watch what you wanted. (Analytical mind but then realized you needed consultants. It is so sad you let so many qualified people go) And people who could have... — read more
There are people who had incredible relationships, leadership and success for this company (region to be specific)! Those regions delivered for this corporation and paid for all the HO JOBS. They may not want to believe that but sales delivers the... — read more
So with the email everyone received today about home office being sold and knowing Tom Wilson and Glenn Shapiro are all about the bottom line it makes sense that they probably plan to move everything over to India. Sad day. Every other us fortune 500... — read more
As far as upgrading my skillset is concerned, I’m not particularly pleased with how much I’ve learned here, but I’ve learned the most important lesson, and that is that you should never wait too long for things to change for the better. I finally got... — read more
Tommy boy has officially announced that they are going to be trying to sell the Northbrook property among other "future workplace" ramblings
They are going to outsource all of Claims and Service. It’s a race to the bottom with no end in sight except big paychecks for the execs. They hired pwc to be the hatchet men for the rank and file. The managers will get cut right afterwards. — read more
Do you have any predictions what the third quarter results will look like?
I was considering a role change. You can’t even understand what the job actually is.
I thought the stress would subside when I gave notice, but Allstate's decided to squeeze me until the very end........ Has it ever happened to anyone that after giving notice you got even more work to do, that is, they bury you with more work than... — read more
If you guys would get on a written budget, cut up the credit cards, and do the debt snowball, these layoffs would become no issue. Download the every dollar app, and go through financial peace university Merry Christmas
Anyone hear why Carrie Blair is leaving?
All signs are pointing to Allstate dropping auto market share again. Rates, Claims and customer service are pathetic.
Does anyone know if any insurance competitors have any chat or non phone positions they are hiring for?
We have some great people here but unfortunately most that I know are in the midst of looking elsewhere or working out their notice. I’m not looking forward to the work that will be pawned off to those who remain. We can’t seem to retain any... — read more
I don’t know about you but I’m terrified to fill this out truthfully.
