    I have been working at Esurance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some amazing, talented and dedicated people working here. It could be an amazing place to work and grow, because there are always new projects and new systems being created.

    Cons

    There is a huge gap between the goals and the promises made to Allstate and whats possible. It is well known that the most senior level product mgrs philisophy is "if I give a realistic timeframe, people will take their foot off the gas" and "I don't care, make it happen", it has turned what could be an exausting yet exciting environment into what feels like scaling Mt Everest every day, except that the mountain is growing as fast as you climb. You feel like you can't win, you can't succeed and you don't have time to do your best work.

    Advice to Management

    I believe goals can still be agressive and stretch your people, but must also be attainable. When new initiatives come, the business leaders should be involved in the decision making so that these decisions are not made in a vacuum, but are being made by the people who know what it takes and what else is also planned during that time and frankly whether or not it's possible. The more we promise unrealistic goals, it makes it harder and harder to trust leadership.
