    Pros

    -The opportunity to help people through a very challenging time of their life. Most people are very appreciative of everything you do for them.
    -Competitive Pay
    -Large amount of paid vacation/personal/sick days at an entry level position
    -Gainshare - Profit sharing program
    -Ability to move up in the company

    Cons

    -Hours can be very long. It's a salary position job, so there are going to be some late nights.
    -It can be a very challenging job. You're attempting to help people who could be dealing with a huge loss, whether it be their truck, Harley, or a loved one.

    Pros

    For the most part you are left alone and not micromanaged. Pretty easy to sell, as it's a good product at a good price.

    Cons

    Pay is low. They try and compensate with occasional contests where you can win gift cards. Supervisors are not interested in developing agents, as there is absolutely no chance for promotion or advancement. Instead, they spend most of their time online shopping.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the supervisors to work. Too much time is spent screwing around online doing nothing. Supervisors working from home is a joke. Most don't do anything while in the office. Make employees feel valued. A global company like Progressive should be able to provide a career, not just a mind numbing job.
