Great company to work for, just a little slow.

I have been working at Progressive Insurance full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Pays well, good benefits, lots of time off, flexible work arrangements, some innovative projects to work on and great co-workers. Also most decisions are based on data, and not subjectivity.

Cons

Projects take too long to develop because of too much unnecessary complexity, red tape, and a culture of slow IT development. I would say as bad as it is, Progressive is the best of its competitors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move IT operations to Silicon Valley, NYC, Chicago, Austin, etc where you can get a pool of developers that are used to working at a faster pace.

    Pros

    variety of work, great networking with small business, develops leadership skills. you also have great flexibility scheduling your day. salary ok but with a good gainshare, very competitive

    Cons

    heavy workloads, very process driven, no room for an individual to think outside the box or be creative, must fit everything into the progressive way. promotions seem arbitrary and not merit based. you get the feeling they are trying to push experienced reps out the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    create a work environment that allows one to take pride in the company through continuous development of employees. don't grind people to a pulp
