    Current Employee - Senior Consultant  in  Bangalore

    I have been working at Allstate full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1) Growth prospects are good in Bangalore Allstate, since its a new set up and is growing rapidly.
    2) Good work-life balance, free cabs morning 9:15 - 6.15pm :- No one stares at you if you leave at 6pm.
    3) Senior management is open to employee suggestions and encourage employee friendly policies.
    For example: Company had "formal" work attire policy. Due to employee feedback, they recently revoked the policy to allow casuals throughout the week.
    4) Good infrastructure : Honey comb structured cubicles. Loads of cubicle space. refreshment breakout tables and chairs provided close to workplaces. Actual "Ergonomic" chairs provided. everything is the same as in the US home office.
    5) Nice work culture as of now :- hope it stays the same. No politics encouraged as of now.
    6) Good salary offered :- given the requirement, they are ready to pay well for good resources.

    Cons

    1) Food :- No good food available. 98% people rely on carrying their lunch boxes.
    2) Since its a new facility, it would take time to get everything in place and up and running.
    3) No onsite opportunities, since the home office folks are already part of same organisation.
    4) Variable pay :- Paid in full 100% or more. But cycle is from Jan- Dec, and they pay in March(quite late). Note: - Even if you put ur paper down on March 30th , you dont get paid 1 full year's VP. If you put your papers on April 2nd, you serve notice and get out after 2 months. So u miss out "minimum" Jan- May end (5 months) variable pay. Basically dont count the variable for a year, if you resign.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Variable pay policy needs to be changed. This is the only unfair thing in Allstate Solutions Private limited now.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The organization in India is less than a year old, but has grown fast. It has Strong Management, is trying to incorporate an empowered culture and an Effective Reward and Recognition program - High 5.

    Cons

    Sense of urgency has to be accelerated and the US teams tend to be bogged down in the 'old' way of doing things. The systems and processes in India are typical to a start-up environment and tend to cause frustration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need new blood and people who can look at things with a fresh pair of eyes in Home Office

    I have been working at Allstate full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not much pros to talk about except few good chairs and infrastructure.

    Cons

    1. No Work-Life Balance
    2. Negligible KT for new joiners, for such a complex system.
    3. Poor poor Pay and management thinks they are one of the highest payers, lol.
    4. Multiple projects for one resource. Hectic.
    5. Old technology all the way, company full of mainframes.
    6. Worst facilities,not even good snacks counter, filthy cabs, no lunch facilty- not even paid, everythings closed after 7, stay late at your own peril. Even cabs are not provided on time if you get late.
    7. No Onsite.
    8. Poor systems to work on, network desktops with too many issues and lag.

    To sum up all, it is quite different than what Allstate actually is, its more of a rigorous cost cutiing centre or a step child of Allstate Chicago. Too much expected of an employee without giving proper business knowledge, company spends a lot on seats, sofas and chairs, but completely ignorant about employee facilities. Most of the policies are puzzling. None of the fortune 500 company features. Admin guys get the onsite but not the software people, just imagine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher Higher management needs to collect feedback from the employees not the managers just below them to evaluate the condition of ASPL.

    Pros

    Nice people. The company fosters an environment of friendliness and diversity. There is a huge emphasis on work/life balance in most departments.

    Cons

    It is sometimes difficult to get reports done on time within the deadlines. It is a very deadlined-based workplace. At least where I work: Finance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your entry-level employees better. It will motivate them to perform better and more efficiently.
