    I worked at GEICO

    Pros

    Pay is above average for the position and the free car and gasoline is a real perk!
    Flexibility is good for doing field work in between life appointments (which is essential since frankly your work NEVER ends at this job)

    Cons

    too much work! too much territory!
    The lack of experience in the management greatly burdens the people doing the day to day job. Having 10 - 15 assignments/claims a day with supplements and files of concern (fraud, liability pictures, old files, total losses) is just too much unless your working in a couple of cities that are adjacent - not a footprint of 75 miles across four bridges in Northern California (yes, this is a true story of two years long). That said, it's sad because you want to succeed, for yourself and the organization (claims adjusting isn't something you do to stay employed - you have to love people, insurance, the auto industry - something - fo rme it is all of the above, been doing git forever). Lots of favoritism, too little professionalism, and senior management is sadly just a bunch of uneducated climbers.....could be a great company if they just stood back, put the numbers away and started doing real ride alongs (not just pretend ones like the sheets say the front line management is doing). I believe it will turn around but I am already gone.....best year and a half of my life has been since I left (never thought I would say that).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good Lord: Take full weeks and ride with employees; figure out what they do, how they do it, and get real about learning what the field people do - best choice ever. Your employees care so much - do you?
