I am looking to hear about people who have been around long enough to have seen prior VTO's with the company, and what the aftermath was, meaning how many people jumped ship v. stayed and what the work environment was like after? Were there involuntary terminations after? How did the work life change?

I was offered a VTO in 2004 ish. Due to my personal situation, I declined. None of us were laid off. Several are still employed by Allstate. Those that left over the years left for other reasons. Only one of us got the SSP offer this round.
Why do you want to know who took the offer?
I wish there was a way to find out how many took the offer
Vto offer expired May tenth anyhow.
@jse+1aPbaFZz ok mom ..
nobody called anyone an id--t, just saying that if you think staying is better than taking the offer is id--tic
Was the BEST thing that ever happened to me in 17. That company is evil to the core.
No need to call someone an id--t. They are just looking for feedback. Grow up.
What I’ve seen: people offered a vto who decline are gone within 1-2 years via layoff or leaving on their own.
In my department, most of those that turned down the VTO were eventually let go via one of the many layoff waves. There were a few, however, that survived the many layoffs and are still with the company today. I fall in the latter category.
Generally speaking, I would not rely on long term employment if offered a voluntary termination/retirement package.
If offered VTO, accept and start seeking a new job. Don't be an id--t.
Everyone that was offered and declined a VTO in my group last time were termed or left within a year on their own.
