    I worked at Pronto Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some great people working at this company. There is a sense of camaraderie within the work teams, and the company celebrates success on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch with what is happening within the organization, which makes it difficult to achieve goals. Benefits are terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read your company values and actually apply them. Your top level managers go out of their way to keep bad news hidden from the owners- nothing will ever improve this way. Bring back some honesty or you will keep treading water.

    I have been working at Pronto Insurance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity for advancement and income by meeting and exceeding your objectives. Pronto spends a lot of money on incentives and regular events- they even rent out Schlitterbahn for a day in the summer!

    Cons

    Training could be more structured and base pay is relatively low- a lot of incentive compensation, that is expected from a growth company. Benefits are just OK.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve training and benefit programs

    I worked at Pronto Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work from home, flexible, you never see your boss.

    Cons

    The pay does not match the market area, ie company is based in a little border town in TX and they pay the same low salaries to their employees in cities like Dallas, San Antonio, Houston. Other carries offer at least 15k more and provide company car and smaller territories.
    Benefits are also terrible, company does not match 401k and health insurance is expensive and lousy, maybe this is what the people at broke border towns are used to, but in the big city things are different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You get what you pay for.

    I have been working at Pronto Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fairly easy to be hired, and flexible schedules.

    Cons

    Very low wages and incentives to grow, this leads to high employee turnover.
    The company is always hiring to keep their offices staffed but this leads to low hiring low skilled agents.
    Customer dissatisfaction due to continues increases in premium, and incompetent agents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should listen to their agents, give them an incentive to grow and stay with the company. Instead of leaving the company for a better paying company when the first opportunity presents.
