Pros

The people that Progressive hires are outstanding and that's why you stay. Progressive treats their employees well as they have seen the value of that investment in how the employees then produce for the company. The compensation is competitive especially as you move through the company.

Cons

In the end, it's not about the relationship that you have built with your peers or other leaders, it is a corporation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do the right thing for people in every situation and your workforce will follow you through anything.

    Pros

    Very competitive salary, benefits, re-investing in employees with things like continuing education are second to none that I have worked out. it is a fantastic company!

    Cons

    Projects take too long to get approved [years]. Red tape can be suffocating. Often legacy tech and infrastructure requires investment in time in old deprecated IT Skill sets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline governance, replace all legacy tech that uses deprecated IT Skillsets [Notes, COBOL, Domino], right-size balance consulting vs. internal IT staffing

    Pros

    Progressive is possibly the best company I have ever worked for.

    The workplace is very relaxed. There's not really a dress code unless you're in management. There's usually some sort of event going on to get away from work-stress...farmer's markets, cultural education events, etc...

    The gainshare program is fantastic. Work efficiently and effectively, get a nice bonus at the end of the year.

    Compensation is right at the national average (but is generous for the position). Benefits are very affordable.

    Managers are very understanding of personal issues and are willing to work with you in case of family hardships. Schedules are also fairly flexible, especially if you are still continuing your education.

    The higher ups actually take time to visit even tier 1, listen to calls, and provide feedback. I'm talking about the CEO and his direct reports, not just "upper" management.

    Programs are in place to move up in the company. Mentoring, shadowing, etc...

    Cons

    Tier 1 management is a bit of a revolving door (though, not entirely due to attrition). It can be tough when you have a new manager every year. Due to this, you can get a so-so manager that doesn't really understand the Service Desk job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some stability in tier 1 management. Experienced and motivated managers there can set the company up with really good entry-level talent.
