Company summary

The  Progressive Group of Insurance Companies has always lived up to its name by being one step ahead of the insurance industry, and finding new and affordable insurance solutions. We began in 1937 with the first drive-in claims office, became the first to introduce reduced rates for low-risk drivers, and then changed the insurance shopping experience by offering comparison rates on the Web.

Progressive continues to find better ways to serve you with our personalized  Snapshot® program and our  Name Your Price® car insurance shopping option.

Who we are

Products, services

Since 1937, drivers have trusted Progressive for their car insurance.

Fast. Fair. Better. That's what customers can expect from  Progressive Direct. Everything we do acknowledges the needs of busy customers who are cost-conscious and increasingly savvy about auto insurance and good service.

We're here for you 24/7, online and by phone. We can provide quotes, update your policy, even answer "what if" questions if that's what you need. From auto quotes in about 6 minutes to our superior claims service, we find new ways to show you that we respect your time.

Company outlook

Progressive's vision is to reduce the human trauma and economic costs associated with automobile accidents. We do this by providing our customers with services designed to help them get their lives back in order again as quickly as possible.

Governing our vision, decisions and behavior are our Core Values — pragmatic statements of what works best for us in the real world.

Integrity

We revere honesty. We adhere to high ethical standards, provide timely, accurate and complete financial reporting, encourage disclosing bad news and welcome disagreement.

Golden Rule

We respect all people, value the differences among them and deal with them in the way we want to be dealt with. This requires us to know ourselves and to try to understand others.

Objectives

We strive to communicate clearly  Progressive's ambitious objectives and our people's personal and team objectives. We evaluate performance against all these objectives.

Excellence

We strive constantly to improve in order to meet and exceed the highest expectations of our customers, agents, shareholders, and people. We teach and encourage our people to improve performance and to reduce the costs of what they do for customers. We base their rewards on results and promotion on ability.

Profit

We seek to earn a profit by offering consumers products and services they want. Profit is how the free-enterprise system motivates investment and rewards companies that consistently create value.

Benefits

Progressive employees enjoy benefits beyond the standard fare—from basics like medical and dental, to career development assistance, to medical and fitness centers in our major locations.

What we offer

What is special about working for us?

They say if you choose a job you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. To many of us at  Progressive, that quote rings true.

There’s a reason that people have worked here for years and years and years. It’s because  Progressive is a special type of place:

  • Where taking chances and pushing innovation is a way of life
  • Where you don’t stop until a job is finished
  • Where hard work is celebrated and rewarded
  • Where you can meet interesting people who can teach you amazing things

It’s not window-dressing or feel-good recruiting language. It's the way of life for our more-than-28,000 employees.

How would we describe the company culture?

Our culture ties to the Golden Rule, one of our Core Values—we treat others the way we want to be treated. The Golden Rule weaves through everything we do for our customers, our employees, our agents, our investors and our communities.

A diverse and inclusive work environment means we celebrate different ideas, different approaches, and different ways of seeing and thinking about the world.

It means we're free to bring new ideas forward…to learn and grow with confidence.
