I have been working at Progressive Insurance

Pros

Progressive has lots of opportunities to learn different things. Whether it be in R&D, claims or pricing, the Progressive way is one of movement - if you don't like something, do something else. Something Peter Lewis taught each one of us. Movement is typically encouraged. Pay isn't awful Work and home balance is a good thing. Very few are here past 6 pm each night. This place is fantastic when growth is good. Can be depressing when growth is bad. Been here for almost 10 years and have seen both good and bad times. Good is better obviously but we learn from the bad and come back better than before.

Cons

As we become larger, we're losing sight of some of the things that made us Progressive and without trying, creating a glass ceiling for those of us that are left. You work hard to reach a certain point and all of a sudden, hit the last promotion of your career and people are surprised that people leave. Although I think we're reacting the other way to that now. We focus so much on career development (or at least as a catchphrase) that there's no place for a product analyst that likes their job and would do it for a while anymore. Everyone needs to be thinking about that next step.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your top talent is leaving as everyone is passed over for favorites of a select few.

    I worked at Progressive Insurance

    Pros

    If you are a talented technology worker you have the opportunity to work with some of the most capable people in the area. You are likely to have access to better training opportunities and will learn a lot in a short while.

    Cons

    If you are not in technology chances are the pressure to perform up to expectations may be a bit over the top. Progressive have been known as the technology company that just happens to sell insurance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better humanizing relationships with your customers are needed for Progressive to do well.
