    Pros

    There are some amazing, talented and dedicated people working here. It could be an amazing place to work and grow, because there are always new projects and new systems being created.

    Cons

    There is a huge gap between the goals and the promises made to Allstate and whats possible. It is well known that the most senior level product mgrs philisophy is "if I give a realistic timeframe, people will take their foot off the gas" and "I don't care, make it happen", it has turned what could be an exausting yet exciting environment into what feels like scaling Mt Everest every day, except that the mountain is growing as fast as you climb. You feel like you can't win, you can't succeed and you don't have time to do your best work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe goals can still be agressive and stretch your people, but must also be attainable. When new initiatives come, the business leaders should be involved in the decision making so that these decisions are not made in a vacuum, but are being made by the people who know what it takes and what else is also planned during that time and frankly whether or not it's possible. The more we promise unrealistic goals, it makes it harder and harder to trust leadership.

    Pros

    Office atmosphere. Co workers, managers and fairness with employees. There's basically limitless overtime during the busy months. You can make decent money.

    Cons

    Compensation is based of the median. If you arent better than the guy next to you, you wont make much money. Compensations plan changes continuously.. but for the better. It seems like they still really dont know what they want their business model to look like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys do a great job motivating and being down to earth and listening to employee feedback. Theres pretty much nothing you need to improve on. Everyone in the office is valued.

    Pros

    Compared to many large corporate insurance companies, Esurance is definitely on the younger, hipper end. Great place for you to start a career and learn new things.

    Cons

    The company tries to make itself seem as a startup or compete with startup companies, but definitely is not good at it. As the company expands, it's becoming more corporate and less transparent.

    I worked at Esurance full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, pretty good salary, great people

    Cons

    Work-life balance was pretty poor, and the company culture is more insurance company than dot-com technology company. It was almost as if the company had an identity crisis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking about Esurance as an insurance product. It severely limits the user experience. Re-think it as something new, different, innovative.

    Pros

    The Culture, the openess, the incentives and appreciation given are priceless. Oh, and the great benefits are a great plus, and there is a schedule around the clock that is usually suitable for anyone.

    Cons

    You might have to start off with a out of the ordinary schedule but there is always room for that to change to something more suitable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the Great Work . Integrity is always at work here.

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

    Pros

    decent salary, some nice managers, if you are lucky, you will get a decent one.

    Cons

    Where to start.....Absolutely cut-throat....do not assume that 8.5 years of being a very good, hard-working employee will protect you from anything awful, because they do not care about you in any way. While it is common to have to continuously "prove" yourself in a sales environment, they are extreme in their disregard for long-time, good sales people. They do not value true "salespeople", and do not make any concessions to try to keep you happy. Forget making plans/commitments on your off days, because your schedule will change (and sometimes dramatically) every few months. Forget feeling any sense of security, you will have none, and you will have to continuously meet higher and higher expectations to not only receive a bonus, but to even keep your job. The Good news is that if you don't like something, it will almost always change, unfortunately, it will not be in your favor. As I said, run away as fast as you can to avoid the misery of this job!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and reward your true "salespeople"! Consider creating an environment of trust and support instead of threats and fear. Set reasonable standards and stick to them...Realize that your salespeople will not be at their best when you constantly change their schedules and threaten their employment with your company. Be Fair and reasonable!
