The world isn’t standing still, and neither is Allstate.  We’re moving quickly, looking across our businesses and brands and taking bold steps to better serve customers’ evolving needs.  That’s why now is an exciting time to join our team.  You’ll have opportunities to take risks, challenge the status quo and shape the future for the greater good.
 

You’ll do all this in an environment of excellence and the highest ethical standards – a place where values such as integrity, inclusive diversity and accountability are paramount.  We empower every employee to lead, drive change and give back where they work and live.  Our people are our greatest strength, and we work as one team in service of our customers and communities.
 

Everything we do at Allstate is driven by a shared purpose: to protect people from life’s uncertainties so they can realize their hopes and dreams.  For more than 89 years we’ve thrived by staying a step ahead of whatever’s coming next – to give customers peace of mind no matter what changes they face.  We acted with conviction to advocate for seat belts, air bags and graduated driving laws.  We help give survivors of domestic violence a voice through financial empowerment.  We’ve been an industry leader in pricing sophistication, telematics, digital photo claims and, more recently, device and identity protection.  We are the Good Hands.  We don’t follow the trends.  We set them.
