Thread regarding Allstate Corp. layoffs

Media

I wonder why the media has not picked up on what's going on in Northbrook/Homeoffice. With so many jobs being transferred to other states and Ireland you would think this would be on someone's radar. And this year keeps getting better, first the BS with the yearly (NOT) raises and the POOR communication on our half a paycheck in August. What's next??

It's not just Illinois. Jacksonville Florida is losing many jobs to Pune, India.

Brilliant response. Your inability to articulate a cogent thought is probably why you can’t find another job.

Again, what you just described (shifting of jobs, or decentralizing different functions throughout the country, some offshore ) is hardly Pulitzer Prize winning materiel. It’s called business. It’s not illegal, or even unethical. It’s business. As a shareholder, they’d be remiss if they didn’t try to reduce expenses and increase efficiency.
Deutschbank announced a lay-off of 18,000 employees last week. That was a story, but only a short byline for a day. Re: the “poor communication “ of the change in pay period, if you think that’s mainstream media newsworthy, you better get out of your cocoon.

Do you have any idea what % of Allstate employees (or contracted vendors) are offshore ? My guess is it’s less than 1%. I would also bet most, if not all our major competitors have similar offshore operations. Welcome to 2019.

Stop buying Allstate products... I am not selling their products anymore. If you don’t want American workers sell your products in India and Ireland. Their product is not a necessity anyway. That is beautiful thing about America we have options.

Many other larger Illinois company’s have lost many more employees. Still no story.

It’s a good local story. People should know that job opportunities are leaving Illinois.

Because this goes on with many large companies. It's not unique to Allstate.

My guess is we’ll continue to be domiciled in Illinois (despite a significantly reduced presence) , meaning that’s where corporate taxes will be paid.

Could be relevant to IL, headline: high taxes are driving companies out of state

I agree....not exactly Pulitzer Prize materiel. “Publicly held company executes strategy to become more efficient, lower real estate costs and decentralize roles in lower cost areas of country”.....maybe 60 Minutes will want the exclusive on this breaking story.

Why do you think the media would have any interest in this. It’s business doing business.,
