Thread regarding Allstate Corp. layoffs

How long after leaving people still hate Allstate?

I don’t like working here and can’t wait to find a new job. As soon as I give notice, I think I’ll forget I’ve ever worked here.
However, what I have noticed is that most people who leave continue to talk about the bad things that happened to them here for a long time. Allstate is something of a great trauma.

This whole boomer thing is absurd. It’s literally two boomers doing what boomers did best and ruin everything for those who come after them. Tom and Glen are boomers! Wake up and open your eyes.

People tell me I have PTSD since I was “retired” from the company. Trust no one, question everything and daily pray the company goes under. However - my stress is significantly better after leaving that he-l ho-e

4wvp. So you chose to leave and you then whine about terms of how you have to pay back money you owe. And you don’t check the consequences of your actions ahead of time. Cmon man. Thats not mental health, just mental.

I left Allstate earlier this year and my mental health/wellbeing is 100 percent better. The only reason I am still upset with Allstate is because I owed them tuition reimbursement back. They expect me to pay the over 500 a month for 6 Mos and were unwilling to set up a affordable repayment plan. If I had 500 extra just lying around wouldn’t I have used it to pay for school? Also the best part is you have to pay with a check and can’t pay it off with a credit card. And if you don’t agree to their plan you’re sent to collections immediately. It’s funny because they couldn’t figure out Cat pay when I was there, overpaid 1000s of people then took it back and we ended up losing money after taxes. Yet when we owe them money they want it back immediately. Guess it’s cool to take months to figure out payroll but dare you owe them money, god forbid you take a little bit longer to pay it back. Honestly, I think the issue is even after you leave they’re completely unreasonable so the bad taste lingers a little longer than you’d like.

I left recently for a competitor that is compensating me better… Allstate is still a joke with wages. They also don’t give back to their employees at all: stock, gain share, etc.

For now I’m getting paid what I am worth and feel appreciated!

Its funny how in one breath we blame the millennial and in the other breath compare it to sears. Millennials don't know what sears is.

Boomer, I think you still have some blockbuster late fees

I left Allstate 4 years ago. I am not bitter. I love watching the sh!t show. Furthermore, I like when all the high value lifetime customers (5+ Years with Allstate,) mouths drop when I give them their new premium on the policies I sold them to replace their Allstate policies. I wrote $25k in Allstate business the last 2 days! This board is great for competitive intelligence. Found out on the Layoff that Allstate is no longer doing direct billing with Enterprise on Rental cars. That is more ammunition to write more Allstate Auto policy holders. I promise my customers that their claims will be handled by domestic claims reps. Allstate claims are handled by people that drove their pet elephant to work! I’m sure Pune India is a nice place-but my customers prefer good old hardworking US citizens helping them with their claims! Keep up the good work and keep the info flowing on this wonderful blog. BTW great post! Glad to see the integrity in the direct channel is bad as the integrity of many Allstate Agencies.

The prior post about boomers could not be further from the truth, the boomers made this company very successful. It wasn't until recently when all the millenials started infiltrating this company that the downfall started. Boomers worth ethic vs millenials have no comparison. To the original post I left "pushed out" after 2 decades, never hated Allstate but hated so many of the poor decisions made by management. The old and tired attitude this company has reminded me of the old Sears and Roebuck stores I visited with my parents as a child. It seems they never could shake themselves loose from that nostalgia. I could see it immediately after being hired just before they went public. I miss working for Allstate in many ways but the job and company was so much different, now its a circus being run by clowns. How sad to see what they have turned into.

I saw ridiculous amounts of fraud when selling in the Charlotte call center. Recycling social security numbers with good IS ratings for applications, deleting accidents and citations from applications, and binding property, mostly renter's policies, with the effective date set out a year in the future to increase items sold and thus pump bonus compensation while avoiding the three month mover. Women climbing the corporate ladder on their backs. Favoritism to in-office lovers for promotions or "inclusive" diversity hires with zero qualifications into leadership roles. Id--tic decisions to cut workforce by 400 people one Spring with no new training classes leading up to Memorial Day thus resulting in upwards of six hour queues with several thousand calls showing on the boards throughout the Summer. The Life Insurance team sank with millions of investment dollars because an unqualified person was selected to helm the project while 20 year life insurance veterans sat as untapped resources on the team. Shayna Schulz ignored the alerts when she moved from Disney and patronized front line employees during upcomm meetings. Fit right in with the snakes on her flanks in that den of iniquity. Jumped ship to claims and it wasn't much better as the company undervalued employees across the board if they weren't in the office cliques. Watched 'leaders' cheat on their wives during business trips and people get sh------d on the company's dime or coked out of their minds at every retreat while making as--s of themselves.

I loathe Allstate and watch with joy as they tumble down the rankings even further since my departure. While you're in there, don't get attached to your team, just get skilled and switch to a different role every opportunity when it presents itself. Navigate between companies if you want to increase your salary more than the paltry sums offered at annual assessments. Or have the company pay for your next round of license renewals and leave to enroll on every IA roster you can find to make it as an independent claims adjuster.

I can't tell you how much I hate that company even five years after leaving it.

The bitter people are the boomers who thought they could milk the company to retirement doing minimal work each day
