I don't assume anything.
And if he has that many offers, he should be able to figure out for himself which one to accept.

(Actual answer: do all three!)

I have offers from them all, as I'm a student I wanted to hear the opinions of those with industry experience.

I'm sure they do BOP and some small market commercial stuff. But, those are not the same as types of commercial work you will do at CNA.
So, don't expect to be able to do both Personal and Commercial if you choose Allstate or Statefarm. It will just be really personal lines.
That was my thought. I really don't think of Allstate or Statefarm when I am thinking of commercial line insurers.

You have a decent shot at getting a graduation job offer from the company where you do an internship, but it's hardly your last chance to choose.

I, personally, would probably pick Swiss Re, assuming the locations are all the same to you. But if one of the big personal line carriers has a good rotation program, they may also have a well-organized internship that will give you good experience.

Commercial auto is a poor performing line, I'd avoid it.

Unless you can fix it that is, I think you can make a lot of money if you did that.

well statefarm does workers comp, commercial auto, and small business... allstate does the same (except workers comp).

How are these not considered commercial? Sure theyre small portions of the companies revenues, but I'd be surprised if you couldn't rotate into a commercial role if you really wanted to and you showed promise.

Allstate does BOP, which I guess is commercial, but it's priced more like personal lines than like most commercial lines.

I gotta say, when I was in personal lines, we talked about statefarm and Allstate as competition. When I've done commercial lines no one has ever mentioned them. I suppose I've played more in the large account arena.

For me it's a toss up between Allstate and CNA. State Farm is located in the boonies and so is Swiss Re (I'm assuming OP is in Illinois). Being in reinsurance is not worth living in Schaumburg, imo.

Allstate is now at Merchandise Mart, which is close to the Loop. River North is a great place to be if you like nightlife.

My impression is that CNA tends to be more uptight about exam progress whereas Allstate is a bit more laid back. CNA people historically have liked to brag about poaching Allstate employees, but I see that gap narrowing with Allstate's new location in the Loop.
