    Former Employee - Claims Adjuster 
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Progressive Insurance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay is good for what you do starting out. Great work environment and independent once you know what you are doing.

    Cons

    Not a work life balance as they claim. Very stressful and with the required goals can be at unhealthy levels. Supervisors are not on the same page and some get so comfortable they make it hard for their team to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Have to figure out a way for the people at the bottom of the ladder the claims adjusters will want to continue to excel in that position. That position has the most illness due to the stress levels. Physical and mentally. Supervisors should not be able to keep the same team for years. Supervisors should be in rotation so that employees learn a vast of skills. When it comes to promotions/raises some employees are held...

    I have been working at Progressive Insurance full-time

    Pros

    Fast growing company, lots of opportunities for moving up. The pay and incentives are decent, but only if the company does well, it’s all based on gainshare. Access and openness to management all the way up is incredible.

    Cons

    Not so great work life balance. Customers are abusive and inappropriate on the phone and a supervisor basically said you should suck it up and sell the policy, the focus is on growth and increasing profitability not employee experience. They pride themself on transparency and integrity, but I have seen others be intentionally misled from the interview process, to the promotion...

    Take a step back and think about the employee experience, solve problems with the long term in mind. Realign yourself with your core values and prioritize the values for the company.

      I worked at Progressive Insurance for more than 3 years

      Pros

      While there are some nice things to say about Progressive, It is insurance. - It is what it is. -Flexibility -“Work Life Balance” - In this group you will rarely have 40 hours of work to do. -Casual Dress -Working From Home Opportunity -Health center & fitness center -Location

      Cons

      To Note: These Cons apply to the special lines pricing department as I cannot speak for other pricing analyst groups within the company. -This is not an Analyst Role, it is more administrative. If you can write in R,Python, or SQL - avoid this group, as you won’t be using any of it. (Mostly editing PDFs and Documents) - They do not like innovative change. Working in a early 2000s technology atmosphere -Politics are...

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your employees and drive change. Do not let your group play the clock of life and refuse to innovate in a constantly innovating industry. Start becoming Analysts instead of administrative busy work. Optimize time instead of having wasteful weekly meetings. The Tenure is a huge problem here and it is inhibiting others opportunity. Quit relaying on other groups to create templates and use technology. Instead...

      Pros

      Good co-workers , good pay

      Cons

      No work life balance. Your hard work is not appreciated just expected. Evaluations exception based. What you have done wrong, not what you do right

      Advice to Management

      No loyalty to employee. Only cares about the numbers. Will quickly turn on you. Glass ceiling for women and people of color
