I have been working at Esurance as an intern (Less than a year)Neutral OutlookNo opinion of CEONeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
1) Let's start with the one a lot of people pay attention to first. The pay rate. Esurance pays its employees absurdly well. As an Intern, I'm getting paid at a rate of $21/hr. 2) Now let's talk about the people. The people are friendly and nice in the company and once in a while they will host a fun event for the employees. 3) Location: It's a few blocks away from the Embarcadero BART station and has a few parking lots nearby so transportation is somewhat simple. As for restaurants for lunch, there's many places nearby to grab a bite to eat. 4) Environment: This can be either a pro or a con depending on what your tastes are. I've seen places where the lights are dim and lights are bright, places were people are rowdy and places were people are quiet. The building in which we reside has good lighting and in terms of background noise, the atmosphere leans towards the calm and quiet side but the employees are still social.
1) The people: This is really aimed more at my department in QA. The people in this department are somewhat anti-social and keep to themselves. Where you see the people in other departments being energetic, QA is this extremely quiet spot. The people are really nice but it takes a lot of work to get them to open up and socialize. From my short time here, I noticed that the people in the QA department tend to be more guarded towards newer employees but if you can get them to open up to you, they are very friendly people. 2) Holidays: The number of company holidays are noticeably less than the number of holidays other companies get. Here, there are only 6 holidays a year which the company will provide days off for. They generally are spaced out well enough so it doesn't burn you out but it's quite an endurance run early in the year.
