What is it like working at Allstate?
"Challenging, frustrating and fascinating in equal measure."
Agile Coach in Belfast:
Pros: Friendly place that strongly encourages learning and development
Cons: Siloed working and too many managers. They don’t know how to do proper project management or demand management to effectively balance demand with capacity (and turn down or terminate work when that has been breached) And too much work in process so SLOW lead times on satisfying requirements.
Glazier in Nashville:
Pros: The view from the top of a skyscraper in the morning when the sun comes up.
Cons: I’m not getting any more money for running work then I was when I was just installing
Insurance Claims Adjuster in Salt Lake City:
Pros: Everything is going well, no complaints.
Cons: Everything is going well, no complaints.
Insurance Agent in Buford:
Pros: Ability to build equity in my co.
Cons: No able to buy or start additional locations.
I can't speak to software development at Allstate more generally, just to CompoZed, which is a group within the company dedicated to agile development. CompoZed encourages a bunch of developer practices like pair programming and test-driven development, which I think are great. People seem happy and are working on interesting things that actually ship. Breakfast is provided for free. My perception is that working in software outside CompoZed, there are fewer perks and it's more bureaucratic. Overall, Allstate is still an insurance company, not a tech company. They're trying to shift, but it's not a culture that's driven by engineering concerns, for better or for worse.
"I love my job what I do."
Executive Administrative Assistant in Dallas:
Pros: the entire scope of my job, the variety with in my job responsibilities and the fact that what I do utilizes my strengths
Cons: I work hard and get great reviews I am constantly taking on more work yet I don't get raises because I am at the top of my pay grade, I do not think good-long term employees should be punished when they do a great job, there should be exceptions. Benefits go up each year, without a raise I am basically losing money each year
"When accident occures claim will be generated and we pay them after all necessary actions are completed."
Claims Supervisor, Insurance in Pune:
Pros: To investigate claims, resolve the issue.
Cons: No direct contact with end customer
