Thread regarding Allstate Corp. layoffs

Employees are expendable for Allstate

I suppose Allstate is not the worst place to work, but it’s definitely the worst place to work from all the big companies in the business. I've worked for a couple of other insurance companies and I have never seen a place where people are more treated more poorly than Allstate.

A lot off hirings, a lot of layoffs, people leaving on their own, a lot of shifts in workforce, that seems to be working out for the management or is even a planned policy, as they wear the worker out by overloading them with work and unrealistic goals to a point where he can’t take it anymore and leaves, or gives up and starts underperforming and they let him go. Seriously, when I started I was immediately overloaded with assignments, some not even in the domain of my position. They give you a decent pay when you start, but after that, you can forget about getting any sort of raise or a bonus, while requirements seem to grow larger and larger. If anyone saw Allstate as a long-term career option, I would advise them to reconsider.

Hey mgt id--ts are you what is your mgt outlook du jour? 20 years and what a f up of a company this has been sure its provided job but omg not in spite of idiocy coming down pike from Home Office. To poster yes Allstate EMBRACED Scientology in 70s but will downplay it and claim ignorance (nice procurement due diligence for vendor training) and every year some stupid mgt flavor of month is rolled out, guess what : you want to regain market share above SF, Geico and Progressive? Focus on business then a million other stupid things -- insurance is core business but dumb--ses running company are more concerned with diversity, "what does a "fill in the blank" do -- that is a home office fluff person supporter by producers and claims on home page, and asking employees to credit their OWN personal charitable activities to the company-- sad. Allstate has gone downhill and turnover is happening with quality people (those staying are close retirement) otherwise get trained and get outta there trust me.

He has no view of the industry Bitter Guy ? He didn’t say that, and it sounds like he has a view into the AIG culture.

Allstate is no worse than AIG was. Talk about micromanaged. Allstate is a dream compared to the "Boys Club" that was AIG. Although, the guys that were managers were all so much nicer than the women!! The things going on in Allstate right now are all because the company is just trying to up it's game and stay in the market by catching up to Geico and Progressive. Allstate is very old school and needs to modernize itself to stay current.
