    I have been working at Esurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some friendly faces and people trying to improve the brand and products. Many take their job seriously and believe in the company and want a good place to work.

    Cons

    Low morale, high turn over rate, people are learning there is low customer satisfaction and that has created some negativity in the company. There is no singular brand vision that has successfully resonated with consumer. For an internet company it has very poor quality technology for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop emphasizing the company is a low cost operator. Create a higher morale by showing you care about individual employees. Stop emphasizing the shrinking budget, it is scaring employees.

    I worked at Esurance (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are very bright, and enjoyable outside of the workplace Great internship program, had experience with all actuarial branches in the company

    Cons

    The entirety of the actuarial department is in one big room with cubicles. Did not foster a great work environment. Other departments of the company are new and exciting whereas it feels like the actuarial department is stuck in the early 2000's Could definitely have more social events after work hours, happy hours etc. Quiet workplace (actuarial department)

    Advice to Management

    Expand the internship program to a larger number of interns. Encourage more interaction between employees for work in general.

    Pros

    - Open to creativity - There's some talented and motivated people

    Cons

    My department was disorganized and some senior level managers were not excited about what they were doing, therefore it trickled down to other employees.

    Advice to Management

    - Hire people in upper management whoa re experts in their field and who know how to lead people - Stop living in the past

    Pros

    Great coworkers, always willing to collaborate and get the job done. Intelligent people, very approachable and willing to finish challenging projects no matter what. Benefits and vacation time are decent for the Bay Area company.

    Cons

    Work from home policies can be a little more flexible (currently up to one day per week). As the company is growing some things tend to take more time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good job.
