SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Metromile, the pioneer in pay-per-mile car insurance, has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2017. Metromile is number six on the list in the SMB category and is the only car insurance company represented. The Employees' Choice Awards program, now in its ninth year, relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor®.
Metromile rates highly on Glassdoor with 4.7 out of 5 stars from more than 40 reviews. Ninety-four percent of people would recommend working for Metromile, 99 percent have a positive business outlook and 100 percent approve of CEO Dan Preston. Reviews cite smart and motivated colleagues, transparent leadership, unique and groundbreaking products as well as benefits as reasons they rank Metromile so positively.
"Company culture is the foundation to our success. This award is a testament to our efforts and an incredible achievement that will certainly help Metromile stand out to job seekers," said Dan Preston, CEO at Metromile. "We are humbled to be recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in 2017 and feel so grateful that this was determined by those that know us best, our employees."
Metromile has headquarters in San Francisco and offices in Boston and Tempe, Ariz. The company is actively hiring in all areas including engineering, data science and product.
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S. based employees between November 2, 2015 and October 30, 2016. To be considered for the U.S. SMB category, a company must have less than 1,000 employees and have received at least 25 company reviews from U.S.-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor's proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews. To determine the winners, Glassdoor evaluates all company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between November 2015 and November 2016, which ultimately drove this award.
