I have been working at Progressive Insurance full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Pays well, good benefits, lots of time off, flexible work arrangements, some innovative projects to work on and great co-workers. Also most decisions are based on data, and not subjectivity.

Cons

Projects take too long to develop because of too much unnecessary complexity, red tape, and a culture of slow IT development. I would say as bad as it is, Progressive is the best of its competitors.

Advice to Management

Move IT operations to Silicon Valley, NYC, Chicago, Austin, etc where you can get a pool of developers that are used to working at a faster pace.

    I have been working at Progressive Insurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Pretty good pay for taking calls all day and having a license to take with you. Opportunities for advancement seem pretty accessible. Interesting bonus programs. Nice flexibility to leave earlier when business is slow.

    Cons

    Just that hours are pretty tough if you like your family or significant other. Seems to take a while (years) to get a nice close to normal schedule but at least you get differential. Unfortunately advance to different position and you are back to bottom of totem pole for schedule, which may inhibit some qualified candidates from making the leap to try and broadent their horizons. Oh. And rates are usually at the high end for insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Think about that loss of schedule tenure with career advancement. It's squashing possibilities. More at home opportunities. Especially for those monotonous inbound call takers.
