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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, friendly people nice place to work if you don't want to be promoted quickly

    Cons

    Everything moves too slowly. No concept of deadlines. The salaries and performance review process need overhauling. Pay low in comparison with outside but people stay fpr the flexible working patterns

    Advice to Management

    Look at the external market falling behind. Revamp the salary and grading process especially for those at the top of their current grade. Very difficult to progress in this geographical area yet other countries appear to promote more easily.

    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    Good stability. Good initiatives for work life balance. Some good training opportunities.

    Cons

    Rigid old school management in place so hard to develop new ideas. Slow to truly embrace change and not open to challenge. A lot of red tape and networks to navigate, including personality management.

    Advice to Management

    Truly reflect and refresh. Listen to the talent within and be prepared to be wrong. Embrace change and challenge the status quo - oh and take responsibility rather than casting downward!

    On the whole, good people in northern Ireland to work with

    If you want to attract the best tech people you need to pay them.

    I have been working at Allstate full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    flexible working available, monthly beer and pizza, lots of organised health, sports and social opportunities discounts given when paying £4 a month!

    Cons

    difficult to move up the pay scale no matter how hard you work, no clear pay structure which is quite demotivating and they refuse to publish pay scales which is frustrating. also the luck of the draw with team managers you could get one who really supports your skills progression and others not so much

    Advice to Management

    bit more consistency in the interest and support provided would inspire people to venture into other areas for a promotion rather than playing safe with a good manager
