I worked at Progressive Insurance full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Good starting pay right now of college with benefits, gain sharing and time off.
- An excellent training program, one of the best I've experienced.
- I thoroughly enjoyed my co-workers, direct supervisor and branch manager.
- If you have the right type of personality and mind-set for this type of work you could be extremely successful and potentially move up quickly. But it certainly isn't for everyone.

Cons

- I felt like they took advantage of people being salaried, definitely not only a 40 hour a week job.
- The branch I was in was very, very understaffed causing those that were still there to have the work of two people.
- The job itself can be very stressful, speaking with people who are already very stressed an often time hurt after an accident.

Advice to Management

Please understand that people who are very tenured may be able to work upwards of 10-15 new claims a day, but people who have been there a year or less will struggle with it and that is something to be understood, not punished for.

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

    Pros

    Progressive seems like a great company so far (just 1 year of service). I really like the people I work with and I have been promoted fairly quickly (which I hear is abnormal).

    Cons

    The workload is heavy and you are salary. When we are fully staffed, it can be pretty fun, but unfortunately it seems someone is always getting promoted, switching roles, etc, and then it can be a ton of work.

    Advice to Management

    Overall I feel management is pretty in touch with what we are going through. My only advice is to hire just a couple more claims adjusters and we would never have a crushing workload again.

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

    Pros

    Job security, training. nice front line employees

    Cons

    Clique type environment, if you like being micromanaged, and prefer being promoted based on which team lead, & managers butt you kiss, ("bring an apple for"..."hang out with after work" ? Then this is the job for you.
     Find "no win" situations challenging and rewarding?Then work in claims for Progressive writing auto damage estimates.

    Advice to Management

    NONE
