Good place to work, but they work you hard.

I have been working at Progressive Insurance full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Progressive seems like a great company so far (just 1 year of service). I really like the people I work with and I have been promoted fairly quickly (which I hear is abnormal).

Cons

The workload is heavy and you are salary. When we are fully staffed, it can be pretty fun, but unfortunately it seems someone is always getting promoted, switching roles, etc, and then it can be a ton of work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall I feel management is pretty in touch with what we are going through. My only advice is to hire just a couple more claims adjusters and we would never have a crushing workload again.

    Pros

    Pay is great. No one can touch that in this area.

    Cons

    You will be worked like a dog and anyone who objects is labeled negative. The best advice I got was"Progressive says they want your opinion and feedback, they really don't. Just nod, tell them every idea they come up with is great." She was right! Five years later, that woman is still working there, getting promoted while her peers who spoke up are gone. I tried speaking up a couple times, not worth the label of being negative. As an example of my newly restored belief in just doing what I'm told, we had a powerpoint about a new program. One of the pages (after a quick technical explanation) said "Trust the numbers...the numbers are correct" People laughed, but after six years, I said, yep, I trust the numbers. Because, really, who and I to tell management how to run the company in the ground. They need no help!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your million dollar bonuses while they rest of us took pay and benefit cuts was a low blow. Peter B Lewis used to say that his employees were Progressive's largest asset. Please treat us with respect , listen to our "Friendly Feedback" and I may actually start caring about Progressive's well-being again. I keep waiting for the day we our told our jobs have been outsourced to Canada or what not. Stop being cheap greedy bastards.
