    I have been working at Esurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have worked on the work life balance in the Sales department. You a guaranteed a commission even without hitting qualifiers. There is potential for growth for the right individual. Majority of people are nice and will help wherever possible. Great first insurance job. No cold calling.

    Cons

    There is not as much overtime as there was in the past. The compensation plan works well only if you can cross sell all products of insurance. Majority of the partner products cannot be sold by the basic sales agent, it must be passed over to another agent. Management is only concerned about conversion and sales per day, not about quality unless there is a problem. Management does little to address the individual concern, instead they quote research as if that is the only fact to take into account. No uniform policy. Some management will say one thing, others will do the opposite. I have had arguments with management about processes and after a month of bantering the manager admitted they were wrong. No kickback on renewal business. Your book resets at the beginning of every month.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the potential your employees have and allow them to grow. Do not sidestep questions with complicated answers. Instead of focus groups of five to ten agents, allow for more agents so that a broader scope can be discussed. The new comp plan of $7 a policy is not enough to keep people motivated.

    I worked at Esurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fosters innovation, cutting edge of insurance if there is such a thing, less red tape than most companies, headed generally in the right direction

    Cons

    Low salary (decent bonuses depending on year), tries to be techie but without the techie company perks (free coffee is it), hardly any opportunities for advancement (even for top performers), some managers should not be managing

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone is in the proper place within the salary band, not just that they're within the band. Reward top performers. Identify bad managers (longevity and tenure does not equal success at managing).
