    I have been working at Allstate Northern Ireland full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible and remote working, brand new facilities in a good city centre location.
    A variety of social benefits e.g. medical, dental, bonus etc - the same as most organisations now.

    Cons

    So difficult to progress, the band you start at and the organisation you start in has a lot to do with your career progression. A lot of managers (senior managers and directors) don't give two hoots about you and couldn't care less if you never progressed. Salary is poor, the longer you stay the worse it gets.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the delusion you're paying market rates, you're not and everyone knows it.

    Pros

    Flexible working. Good atmosphere to work in

    Cons

    Wages. Annual review process. Grades and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Start to pay people based on people's skills and qualifications.
     Get rid of the antiquated annual review process that has nothing to do with job performance.
    Since changing the bonus system and the annual pay rise implementation it has caused even more unhappiness among the employees.
