    Pros

    Great location in SF financial district and free refreshments available at SF office.

    Cons

    There is no chance for growth unless you are a suck-up or bootlicker.
    Low pay, expectation to work 24/7. Low employee morale and productivity as all sticking out until the immigration clears.
    Managers keen in the fat paycheck/huge bonus and overworking the teams. Managers don't take no as an answer from subordinates and will never say no to their seniors. Most managers are long tenured employees promoted within with outdated skills.
    Senior management repeatedly fails to understand how software development works, there is only focus on how the end result will be bug free.
    Highly political environment. No effort to get it done right. Plenty finger pointing. No clear accountability.
    No good decision taken by Senior management to fix or understand any issues.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people in IT development who understand software development fundamentals. Hire managers that care about the product/people and company and not just paychecks.

    I have been working at Esurance full-time

    Pros

    They have jobs but you're better off looking elsewhere.

    Cons

    They expect you to work more than 60 hrs a week. They also offer very low salaries even in some of the most expensive job markets. No work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees fairly and give them opportunities for work/life balance.
