    I worked at GEICO full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and opportunity for growth. Fair salaries. Generous company as far as free perks - company picnic, movie tickets, discounts. Easy to schedule time-off. Diverse and intelligent workforce. Market leader in every sense of the word. Definitely a "winning team."

    Cons

    A lot of rules. Very competitive culture surrounding profit sharing. This motivates the sales team to find ways to skirt around the rules to meet and exceed their numbers. It also creates a culture of exclusion which weeds out any employee who seems a threat to the highest profits possible. Not for everyone. If you are a highly competitive, reasonably intelligent and conservative person, you will probably do well here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your drive for numbers may be exceeding your humanity.

    Pros

    Great place to work, great benefits, some decent management

    Cons

    Slave hours, sometimes crack the whip. They just expect a ton of hard work. It's a call center, so not that great.

    Pros

    the company offers a profit sharing plan which is the main driver to employee retention. they also offer excellent training in the industry.

    Cons

    expectations are aggressive and causes turnover. Management varies by area and has little change in middle to lower ranks of management.

    Pros

    Everyone is very nice and helpful. The company is growing very fast and there are plenty of opportunities for advancement if you are willing to work hard. Some members of management really care and try to help you grow. Profit sharing is great and very secure job as long as you perform decently.

    Cons

    High workload, especially for the Supervisor/Management prep programs. Base pay seems to be below industry levels but they do give profit sharing.

    Pros

    There's no micro managing & everyone wants the best of you, for you. There's constant movement, so a promotion is always around the corner. The benefits are good, although there's no short term disability. The work schedules are diverse with 8 hr/5 day shift times or 10 hr/4 day shift times. If your numbers are good, you can pick the best work schedule for your life.

    Cons

    Parking- The company has grown so much that there's not enough parking on site, so you have to park off site then take a shuttle to get to the building. Which means you have to get to work earlier & you can't move your car during lunch (takes up too much of your lunch time).

    Good company atmosphere ...a lot of food

    Cons

    Pay is not where it should be for what you have to deal with...I've heard numerous people complain about promotions .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a lot of qualified people from within that are overlooked for promotions/mgmt programs because of brown nosing
