    Pros

    Learned a lot, good social opportunities, nice building and facilities (Belfast), relevant work experience

    Cons

    Many colleagues have worked there for 10+ years so less understanding of new experience / needs, not many younger employees, inflexible hours for certain positions

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

    Pros

    Good dental. Most people are okay.

    Cons

    Senior management/directors are dillusional. Zero career progression. Be prepared to rot in a role because moving to a new position is near impossible because the requirements are based on bands not willingness to learn or skills. When you look around in the office seeing far less talented people in more interesting challenging roles is part of the frustration. Don't join if you expect training. They throw pluralsight at you and expect you to learn skills from it when you cannot use them everyday. Many people leave or move because of dissatisfaction of pay/compensation. Graduates leave in hoardes.

    I have been working at Allstate Northern Ireland full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people you work with are generally fantastic, only reason anyone works there.

    Cons

    Upper management do not care about staff. Openly have quarterly meetings bragging about how good things are when it is a complete disaster that is covered up by floor managers. Managers are awful, micromanaging each person & there is no fair progression in the company unless you are a yes man & a company stooge. No recognition for work. Metrics are a joke & everything Allstate uses system wise is a cheap excuse for a product, crashes everyday & leaves staff to take brunt of complaints for clients. Pay is poor, sports and social is awful, people don't listen to ideas & it's the same people in every group. The yearly review is a farce with goals for the department you can't meet so you get punished for it individually. People will stand by and watch as others get ahead by being favourites & using family links to get promotions ahead of qualified people there years.
