Allstate is a great company for women looking for a work/life balance. They have great benefits, a decent maternity leave policy, and had several women in executive roles willing to be mentors and role models. If you are looking for advancing your career as a women, it may be difficult to do here. There was a big gap between early level leaders and Directors, with the Manager/Sr Manager stepping stone role almost completely eliminated in my department, and most other senior roles in other areas were held by while men. Unfortunately it was very hard to see a long-term career here, even though the culture and people were fantastic.
Overall it is a great company but it is still very male dominated.

I have been in multiple positions over my 8 years at Allstate. I have been encouraged to grow and develop my skills and training and have been given multiple opportunities to sustain a proper work/life balance.
I've worked at Allstate for over 5 years. There are quite a few women working here but most are in lower management positions. While they are generous with vacation, working over 10 hours days are common. You may also be working during your vacation by staying on top or emails and calling in for important meetings. Promotions and advancement do not correlate to performance but who you know and who is willing to be an advocate for you. Management specifically in the IT PMO has turned into a "Mean Girls" club and they are weeding out some great resources just based on not liking them.
Job Satisfaction Level
It's really turned into a mean girls club, might work if your willing to play the game.
I have worked here for a long time. However, the work culture has changed dramatically in the past 2-3 years and where a 40-45 work week was fairly normal and the work load was reasonable, now it is a 50+ work week and the expectations are often unattainable - unless you want to put in around 60 hours a week ... Work/life balance for exempt employees is non existent unless you don't meet expectations
