I ran across this site by way of one of our users.
A while ago I made a post about how Progressive Auto Insurance offered to plant a tree in my name if I chose to go paperless with them. Well s2tigger replied to that post with a link over to the Venting page for Progressive employees… and it doesn’t look too good.
I think that Glenn is a smart man and I support him personally. I think his great failing is that he has promoted lackeys, sycophants, and yes-men (and yes-women) internally for the past 10 years and this is killing the company (and thus him and everyone else). So you see it reflected in this board in all of the reviews (I have seen a breathtaking amount of talent leave voluntarily and involuntarily). You see it reflected in our continually asinine commercials. You see it reflected in our perpetually stupid IT policies and management where costs and priorities are out of control because we’re stuck in the 1990s (and still running Windows 2000 if you can believe that).
Hmm… probably a common complaint across a lot of big companies from folks lower down in the chain, don’t you think?
