    Good place to work.. good learning opportunity and possible great prospects

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (less than an 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.
