Does anyone here know what Terrance will reveal to the EA's today? Supposedly big (and probably bad) news for EAs
Topics regarding layoffs at Allstate Corp.
When was the last major round?
We were told on April 9 in a very informal email that we had 90 days to our return company car and to fill out a Word document checklist to complete the return. Since April 9 none of our Auto team has heard anything more regarding company car return... — read more
I think this company is most undermined by the arrogance of those at the top who think there are still a lot of those who won’t mind their talent being devalued here. I too have a hard time accepting that this company is not like it used to be, but... — read more
Wilson: Does anyone have any new ideas for company direction or improvement?? DEAD SILENCE IN ROOM Shapiro: Cut, CUT, CUT, CUT (manically laughing) CUT, CUT…CUT CUT CUT CUT Wilson: Ok, each of you have your list for department cuts on my... — read more
I hope everyone in our Chicago offices are okay. We are still co-workers no matter how bad things are and need to look out for each other. https://weather.com/news/news/2021-06-21-tornado-suburban-chicago-woodridge
And it feels so good! Very vindicating! Come at me, I do not give a sh*t.
Single point of contact to occur next month. Encompass/Nat Gen/AIA. Probably be the timing of more layoffs too???
Allstate is really doomed. I do not understand their logic according to which this way of managing a company is sustainable in the long run. No, I don’t intend to do work for several people anymore. Rarely is anyone with any talent really... — read more
I currently have triple the amount of files right now than I normally do going into a Monday. I'm actually starting to work on them now at 1am. Between having a holiday off (how dare us!), more than 40 adjusters lost to the CCC starting today, and... — read more
I could see the writing on the wall in 2020. I left after 22 years with my pension, 401(k). No worries. I had a job within two weeks. Right now is the best time to look for a new job. It is always easiest to look for a job while you have a job. I am... — read more
There is no clear career path for me at Allstate and I am very aware of that. It’s high time to consider a new approach because I’m stuck here in a job with no possibility of progression and I’m just wasting my time. I would love to stay in this... — read more
Was anyone able to make sense out of that? They “will be launching a department wide skills and interests mapping exercise. Each employee will take a comprehensive survey of legal and broad-based skills and interests. They will capture your current... — read more
I am one of the 40 adjusters moving to the CCC starting Monday as a part of the CCC's new Claims Engagement Team. No more adjysting, no more making excuses with pi---d off shops of this company. No more 12+ hour days just to keep my job, no more... — read more
I don't know a single manager, not to mention anybody from the ELT, who has tried to boost morale in the past several years. I mean genuinely tried, not just spewing out the usual platitudes. No attempts were made to reduce the number of people... — read more
Job requirements at Allstate: We're looking for someone with the wisdom of a 50-year old, the experience of a 40-year old, the drive of a 30-year old, and the pay scale of a 20-year old. Stolen from here:... — read more
As a former Esurance employee, I can say the process Brandt designed worked well. He wants to streamline processes, and remove roadblocks, and it better for all involved. People here keep calling him an As----e, but he is not. He genuinely cares... — read more
Straight down. “Talent assessments” i.e., Wr already decided who were going to lay off but are using this stupid assessment to make it look legit. Run lawyers, run!
People are quick to complain but slow when it comes to improving themselves and creating better opportunities for the future. Allstate is not a good place to work, we all already know that. There's not much we can do to change that. But what you can... — read more
Ours is claiming he has none and that the orders come from higher tiers. I don’t really believe him.
Allstate did a great job 👏 ruining the morale and motivation of the associates left behind after their RIF tactics of 2020. Now with pandemic waning, people are leaving ASAP for other jobs, disability, or retirement. With a ton of customer service... — read more
There will be meetings starting in the next two weeks to address talent assessments and RIF to follow. I don’t care who is going to call BS. For the rest of us with a non delusional mind, do with this info what you like.
Do you constantly feel like they are going to get rid of you? Most Allstate employees constantly feel like they are about to get axed. How healthy is that for employees? How much does it benefit Allstate itself? The situation here has never been... — read more
OK, they know how to give bad excuses for those cuts. Do you remember any good moves lately? I don't. They make the most of the fact that some of us have a hard time getting a new job. However, if they continue like this, I am afraid that very... — read more
Another C suite oddity is head of HR Carrie Blair joined ALL in 2019. Looks like she was fired from Sun LIfe and it took her 1+ years to find anything. They just needed a body before they started massive layoffs and firings.
Someone mentioned the app in one of the posts and I would love to know why that app is so bad? Is it possible they couldn’t have made it better? I don't get whether it is made to bring in customers or to drive away customers? /s.
It just means that Allstate learns nothing from its mistakes, that leadership goes from mistake to mistake, and that there is no hope for this company. I totally agree when someone said that it wouldn’t be a surprise if Allstate ended up as Sears... — read more
Since Encompass employees make more than Nat Gen ones, does that mean most if not all Encompass employees will be let go during the next RIF? Nat Gen is doing so much hiring and I'm sure at lower salaries which is what Allstate wants. Why is... — read more
Will they hold a townhall meeting again to announce the assessments?
I see so many people here boasting about finding new jobs and leaving Allstate, but do you mind posting your age as well? Something tells me all of you are in your thirties, forties at best. I know a lot of people who are trying to get out but nobody... — read more
I've been here for 25 years. When I just started I was satisfied with most things regarding work and I enjoyed my job. Over the years that changed gradually, and now I'm at the point where I hate my job and everything about it. I have no intention of... — read more
Per a meeting today, these assessments will be given in August.
We move over for 6 weeks of training to become the CCC's "Claims Engagement Team" where we will assist customers with their current claims and to answer claims related questions and concerns. We are told we will no longer be doing any adjusting or... — read more
Looks like things are blowing up. They are looking for all sorts of Reps( Auto,LDU, Casualty) to work nights and weekends for CAT Pay. Maybe Tom and Glenn can handle some claims this weekend. Nice mess they created.
People complaining about Allstate health insurance should know that these guys have the exact same coverage as regular employees. There health insurance situation is no different and costs the same.
That's the talk going around. Multiple areas. Multiple departments. Multiple levels from grunts on up. All I have.
State farm has the best commercials
Seems like as Encompass rolls into National General the Encompass employees will disappear with it. Anyone know more about that? Even though Allstate purchased National General, seems like they are running the show and to heck with Encompass... — read more
Tell everyone.you know to stay away from Allstate, their products and those that support them. As a current employee I am insulted by the arrogant comments about this being basic Business or Economics. The truth is this company will do anything at... — read more
