    Former Employee - Management Trainee in Fredericksburg, VA

    I worked at GEICO full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Well run organization, so you learn a lot just through observation and being there everyday.
    Reasonable performance metrics and ability to advance through hard work.
    My manager was a delight to work with.
    I feel like things that I learned helped me with my later career at other organizations.

    Cons

    Sometimes ultra low cost mentality can be a bit of a nuisance, but I guess that's a result of the cost management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For your software systems, don't flip flop between architectures / codes all the time. It creates unnecessary cost and risk for the business (and stress for the IT employees). Get someone with a more balanced set of both technical and managerial skills for the top IT management team.
