It served its purpose, but it was painful

I worked at Esurance full-time for more than a year

Pros

Pay, bonus (year dependent), location, you can wear jeans, lots of coffee, it's a big brand. Best case scenario: get in, get out, go to a cool event or 2 and get out before it gets terrible.

Cons

Culture, management enjoys playing the blame game and you just might be the scapegoat, the technology is old, Allstate is asking for a lot and there are few resources, caffeine addictions, same accepted nonsense day after day, good ideas go to waste and then reappear later as great ideas from management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be pointless.

    I have been working at Esurance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Laid back, you get to dress casual. Nice coworkers, the ones who work in the trenches.

    Cons

    Impossible to make the kind of money they claim their agents make. Manager in Tampa Florida who sets requirements has no clue, he gets paid well to pretend he knows insurance sales. Because agents in Florida start 3 hours earlier, they have better quality customers who have C.C in hand and ready to buy. They started experienced agents on swing shift with the same sales goals as people who worked early in the day. Late night callers have poor driving records, $6,500+ per year, thus no sale. From the first interview they will bull-**** College grads about promotion opportunities to go into Underwriting, Compliance, Product Marketing, etc. Unless they have changed goals since I worked for this crappy company it's just a turnover mill. This company does not value their employees. I am surprised that Allstate bought Esurance, and more surprised that they haven't sold it off yet. The CEO and his cronies are the only ones who got rich when Allstate bought Esurance. No one down the line was rewarded, but the Health Insurance plans sure went up is cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management team who sets goals and compensation for licensed agents don't have a clue about the position. I challenge upper management in Florida and Rocklin to spend 30 days working swing shift selling on the phone in Rocklin, Ca. You won't cause you know your whole system is rigged against the agents. You don't have a compensation plan that was fair to your Rocklin Ca, swing shift agents. If you did you wouldn't have gotten the reputation from agents and employment agencies in the area that you are a turnover mill. Good Riddance!
