    GEICO has its own very unique culture. It's split up into IT and Operations, where everyday work is customer oriented.

    I have been working at GEICO full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great starting career, you can meet a lot of successful employees and receive great mentorship starting off. Profit sharing is probably the best time of the year. Solid 401k benefits, and you get discounts on GEICO auto insurance. GEICO is a Berkshire Hathaway company.

    Cons

    Salary is usually below national average. Work can be very redundant at times and can be very difficult to deal with angry customers (depending on your job).

    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Macon, GA

    I worked at GEICO full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They pay for licensing. Also a great bonus package if in Sales, and many opportunities to increase salary during the year. Open door policy so able to speak with management at any time. The people working there are pretty nice.

    Cons

    Hard to balance work/life schedule. Very strict as far as sick days even with a doctors note. Sometimes care more about the phones being answered than your overall health.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider revamping time off policy. If you miss a day and you fall under a certain dependability standard then you are ineligible for raises even if you are meeting your goals. I think at least absences with a doctors note should be excused and not count against someone. Or at least maybe have the normal hit. Also give more fluidity in schedule making. When I started there you could just work every weekend if you wanted too, but now at least in the Macon office you have to work every other weekend. I know it's easier for scheduling if everyone does this, but it makes things harder to plan and lot's of people actually like working weekends.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. There are many advancement opportunities. Fast growth potential early. Excellent training programs for the job. Good Wages for the area.

    Cons

    The workload is unreasonable. Your results are set by company goals which can be unobtainable or not within your control. Workload and goals make it almost impossible to be a "Team Player". Constant pressure to succeed. Company growing pains causing many Management re-assigning. Too much negative feedback with little positive feedback.

    Pros

    Great benefits! GEICO offers medical dental insurance, 401K and profit sharing. You have the opportunity to work with attorneys and learn from them. This is a good place to work if you want to be an attorney or if you just graduated.

    Cons

    There's no room for growth, unless you move to Lakeland, Florida where there corporate office is located. It's really hard to get a a raise or get promoted. There's no annual review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GEICO should open a corporate office in Miami.
