    I worked at Allstate full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you are located in a great place, you can look at making 60,000K. A lot of various opportunities should you be working near head office.

    Cons

    Paid based on a advance on commission. Very high pressure to sell and reach your monthly quota and very aggressive to push you out of the organization should you not reach it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to know your employees and provide genuine insight into how agents can build a better book of business. Do not simply assume that when one thing works for one agent that the same will be for another.

    Current Employee - Insurance Agent in Columbus, OH (US)

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can purchase the "book of business" from the former agent. Which means you will need. Cash 50K to 1M or a bank loan. You then become the owner of the income stream from the policies.

    Cons

    You (the new agent) become responsible for all rent,phone, employees, advertising, marketing, supplies, taxes, the debt load could become unmanageable....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The agent should get the benefit for "every policy" the agent sell. Stop using vacations as incentive, in my opinion "vacation" incentive in from the past and in not appropriate for all agents

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
