They throw around words like "flexible" and "holistic" while being the exact opposite.

I have been working at Progressive Insurance full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Artwork, gain share, onsite gym

Cons

Terrible hours, it's like pulling teeth to change your schedule even if it's a dire need like caring for a sick family member - they don't care. They also don't give you any more money for becoming licensed yet give you more work due to that fact and because you're "more skilled" you have to fight even harder to get any time off approved. Just don't work in the call center, it's not worth it and there are far less opportunities to move up than they like you to think. If you do start in the call center, a word of advice - do NOT get tricked into extra skills like Special Lines or USAA calls because there's no boost in pay or extra recognition for that either, you just get a busier phone.

Advice to Management

Less lip service, more doing.

    Pros

    Large Company Good training opportunities Talk the walk - good intentions Job Security

    Cons

    Can be pretentious. Too many large egos that talk like they are team oriented, etc but in the end are focused on themselevs and their career. Need to watch for back stabbing,

    Advice to Management

    The IT Culture has changed over the 20 years I've been at PGR. Much of the culture is great - career development, communications, golden rule. Some of it bad - I've witnessed an attitude that had developed in the last 5 years in Sr Mgmt - almost feels like a clone army of simular styles and allot of yes men. In the early days individulaity was encourged and rewarded, this led to allot of innovation and rewarding relationships. Now it seems relationships are base don getting ahead and more political. This reflects the perosnality and style at the top of IT. Its too bad.
