    I have been working at Esurance full-time

    Pros

    The President/CEO has a solid vision for the company’s future. A great customer experience is the top priority and infuses everything we do. The CEO also truly cares about the associates (employees) and genuinely asks for feedback – which he responds to personally. I have never met a more people-focused leader. The people who work here are also some of the most fun and smart people around. It’s really a pleasure to come into work. That said, it’s also possible to work from home on occasion. Some of our staff are 100% work-from-home.

    The San Francisco headquarters are in a beautiful and conveniently located part of town, and parts of the office have water views. Walks along the Embarcadero at lunchtime can’t be beat.

    Cons

    The company is working hard to improve areas of opportunity – mainly bringing the tech that associates use in line with the cutting-edge, award-winning technology we offer our customers. As a mid-size company, opportunities for career growth can be more challenging to come by, but again, something they are giving a lot of thought to improving.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the communications to associates about the company priorities and goals, as well as reports on improvements being made. The transparency is definitely of value!

    Average, Good. Relaxed real world questions. No if I where a tree what kind of tree would I be? And why? No dumb personality profile tests. Warm friendly Human Recourses recruiting staff.
