    I have been working at Progressive Insurance

    Pros

    A paycheck that's always on time.

    Cons

    At Progressive, you'll get worked like a Hebrew slave with little to no regard from them for your actual well being. Sadly, the company says one thing ("we care about our employees," for example) and then does something completely different. In the call center, which involved customer service and sales (as well as other silly departments that basically do the same thing), you're watched like a hawk to make sure you're "available" as much as possible (~80% with lunch and breaks) to take calls from irate customers who seek to punish you for simply doing your job. PSP (in sales) is by far the stupidest and most meaningless thing I've ever come across. Management is full of phony smiles and high fives as a way of "showing appreciation" and increasing retention, but thankfully some of us see through the cracks. lest I forget, management thinks they're completely untouchable (which unfortunately they are) and seem to get away with things that are, to say the very least, unethical and probably illegal. If you want to be treated like a human being and keep your dignity intact, I implore you to search elsewhere for employment. this company will promise you the world to get you in the door, just to rob you starting on day 1.

    I have been working at Progressive Insurance full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling and Gainshare will help you feel comfortable.

    Cons

    Shift availability is Performance Based Scheduling. Your performance throughout the year is a factor on whether you get a better or worse schedule next year. The company's top pay in a band is impossible to reach. Supervisors have to get special permission if your pay exceeds 110% of the mean.

    I have been working at Progressive Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The training that Progressive provides its employees is amazing. They offer great work life balance with schedule flexibility, including work from home opportunities. The benefits are the best I've ever had. They actively encourage you to find your career path in the company, including interview prep with your manager. Everyone wants you to succeed and will go out of their way to help you. The culture is truly the best.

    Cons

    This is a busy call center position.

    I have been working at Progressive Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Once you're in you're in. Super easy tp move up in the company, especially right now in this time of huge growth. Most managers are really good, but if you get one that is lazy just to get your entitled raise will be a tedious task.

    Cons

    If you're in sales especially on the phones you are chained to a desk.
