Allstate Megastar: Kylasam

Allstate Megastar: Kylasam.

Senior Consultant - Technology, ASPL India

Coming from an agricultural family in Tamil Nadu, I had a simple life. I realized that hard work is the only way for me to have a better tomorrow. But I never imagined that Allstate would be the link to my future success.

I had earned my degree in Engineering and bagged my first job at a coveted MNC and my family was happy. But I knew my ambitions had a higher calling. In the month of November, 2015, I got a call from Allstate, Bangalore, welcoming me to join their organization. This became the biggest milestone of my life. I finally found a platform, where I could learn and develop my potential to reach greater heights in my career.

This year, Allstate received two industry awards for leading in Learning and Development practices from NASSCOM and Zinnov. This has reaffirmed my belief that I am in ‘Good Hands'.

My work involves working on Automation solutions using Jenkins and Python, this coupled with the exposure that I get from our strong insurance business helps me connect the dots between my work and needs of the end customer.

I have always been a family-oriented person, for me it's important to give my family the desired attention. In the past 3 years that I have worked at Allstate and even with an increase in my work responsibilities as a Senior Consultant in the technology development team, I have never seen a dull moment both on personal and professional fronts.

The work-hours accommodate my usual morning strolls amidst nature, as well as the occasional bike trips on lesser-traveled roads. Just like a nurturing family, Allstate has made my personality thrive. So much so, I no longer count the days here. I rather count the memories I make.

I have always wanted to do something worthwhile for the society, and with the active participation of Allstate in social welfare activities, I have had multiple opportunities to give back to the community.

Working with Allstate, I have had several proud moments that are etched in my heart. Like the time my photo got placed on the Wall of Fame, or the time when I received the Standing Ovation award. But the most rewarding of them are the moments when Allstate's welfare activities put a smile on the weaker sections of the society.
