Our Work Culture
Our name says it all. We’re Progressive. And we are progressive. We live and breathe our Core Values: Integrity, Golden Rule, Objectives, Excellence, and Profit. These values set our culture apart and support our belief that how we achieve something is just as important as what we achieve. And we carry these values out every day—they guide our business decisions and define how we treat each other, our customers, our business partners, and our investors.
Progressive people work hard to keep us at the top of our industry, and are rewarded for it—with competitive pay, great benefits, the possibility of bonuses based on company performance, work-life balance opportunities, on-site fitness and health centers, and other special perks.
And we know that cultivating a diverse, inclusive, and flexible work environment is critical to our achievements. That’s why we promote from within, work hard and get rewarded for it, and win the right way.
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) play a key part in leveraging our differences to support an inclusive culture and provide insight into our diverse customers. These groups provide development tools, networking opportunities, and interactive cultural celebrations that are just one piece of our open, supportive culture.
Progressive isn’t what you’d expect from an insurance company… or any company, for that matter. We live and breathe by our Core Values: Integrity, Golden Rule, Objectives, Excellence, and Profit. We believe that how we achieve something is just as important as what we achieve. And we know that cultivating a diverse, inclusive, and flexible work environment is critical to our achievements. We're a Fortune 500 company with forward-thinking approaches, state-of-the-art technology, and endless opportunities to risk, learn and grow. Think working in insurance would be boring? Rethink Progressive.

“We have a really good culture at Progressive and the opportunity to make it happen,” Pawan said, “Progressive is full of these surprises.”
And those surprises kept him at Progressive for 18 years and counting. In that time, he found a passion for data, voiced ideas to executives, and led several innovative projects. “What will tomorrow bring? I don’t know and that’s the exciting part,” he said.
One thing he does know is that he'll continue to solve problems both in and outside of work. Like fixing small engines on the weekend or creating art through wood turning. “Building things and fixing things—that’s what I do,” Pawan said. #PeopleOfProgressive #LifeAtProgressive
Protect Yourself Against Job Fraud
Keeping jobseekers as safe as possible is critical. We know searching for a job that’s truly rewarding can be challenging. Progressive is aware of employment scams in which someone falsely claims to be an employee or recruiter from our company to steal sensitive information or money from people. These scams can sometimes be unsolicited job offers that ask you to provide personal or financial information up front.
If you’re considering Progressive as the next step in your career, keep in mind that applications are only accepted through our website at progressive.com/careers.
Beware of these scam warning signs:
1. You’re contacted by a “recruiter” from a suspicious email address. If you’re ever contacted by a Progressive recruiter, they‘ll have an email address with the domain firstname.lastname@example.org
2. A job ad doesn’t point you to a company’s official job opportunities page. When searching for our jobs on Indeed you’ll always see a blue button labeled, “Apply on company site”. This will take you directly to our official application. We’ll also always have a job number associated with our openings. For example, Claims Adjuster Trainee, job number 123456.
3. Your interviewer has a job title that doesn’t make sense for the position at hand.
4. You’re asked to buy equipment and be reimbursed later.
5. You’re contacted by chat apps such as WhatsApp, Signal, or Google Hangouts; you receive a text message without first providing consent; or you get a random direct message on Facebook or Twitter.
If you’re questioning if a Progressive job posting is legitimate, always feel free to contact our recruiting team. Visit https://www.progressive.com/contact-us/ and select “Send Email” and choose “Working at Progressive”.
We wish you a successful job search and stay safe out there!
Benefits and Perks
Our employee benefits are intended to support and invest in Progressive people. Our affordable, comprehensive medical plan options promote a continued healthy lifestyle for you and any dependents in your family. We offer plans for eligible full-time and part-time employees that include free flu shots and preventative health screenings.
Our financial benefits reflect the contributions employees make each and every day. You'll earn competitive compensation and have tools and resources like money-saving programs and retirement plans to prepare for your financial future. We also have a companywide gainshare plan, an annual bonus program dependent upon company performance which all eligible employees—not just our execs—have the opportunity to share in.
We offer resources and benefits to help you navigate through life. All eligible employees earn paid time off, which starts adding up on the very first day of employment. If you’re a regular full-time employee, you can earn up to 17 days off in your first year. And our benefits don’t stop there. Whether it's consultative services for important life events, ensuring you have time off to relax, or matching donations to your public charity of choice, we value the things that make you … you.
Our Military Commitment
We're proud to hire members of the military. We've found that the same qualities that help service members succeed in the military have helped them succeed at Progressive. Just ask any of the 1,300-plus Progressive employees who've served our country proudly or who continue to do so as reservists. Whether you're managing a project, leading a team, or helping a customer, you can apply the military skills you developed to nearly everything you do at Progressive. And through our military Employee Resource Group, we come together to support, honor and give back to those who serve our country.
Flexibility for Your Work-Life Balance
Our corporate headquarters are in Mayfield Village just outside of Cleveland, Ohio, but many of our employees across the country work from home, whether full-time or on a hybrid basis, with some days worked from an office. We also have large locations in Tampa, Austin, and Colorado Springs!
With a robust slate of online communication tools, virtual training, career development resources, and Employee Resource Groups, Progressive offers all of its employees plenty of opportunities to get involved and advance their careers. If your work is on-site or if you work or live near a Progressive facility, you may be able to take advantage of on-site health care, a fitness center, and one of the largest corporate art collections in the country!
