Pros

If you need a job to start your career, the pay and benefits are good. Profit sharing is good.

Cons

Promotions are based on who you know or if some one likes you or not, rarely is it about your performance. Perfomance plays a very minimal part in you getting promoted. The company is not very personal life friendly. Many of senior management are not Bachelors degree or higher and if you come in with a degree they secretly place obstacles in your way or talk about you so you dont advance. I believe many non degreed in management are treatened by that. Unrealistic goals while preaching that the're agent comes first.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get to know your people, take your personal feelings out of the promotion decision and base your decision on performance.

    Pros

    The growth opportunities are excellent. There are many levels available from a salary perspective and management is generally supportive of those seeking to improve their positions within the company.

    Cons

    The organization is so large that one has to take ownership of their work and sing their own praises a little too often. Better recognization of valued employees and their ideas need to be incorporated in a more natural way in the appraisal processes and promotional processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what has been done to keep the company successful. Add some additional support that will foster a better culture in all departments from IT to the production unit where sales and service agents are encoraged to grow and prosper within the company.

    Pros

    The benefits are good and what future employer hasn't heard of GEICO? My coworkers were friendly and helpful. I can't thank them enough for making the experience bearable.

    Cons

    Favoritism, incompetence of upper management, zero respect, no way to advance to anything meaningful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to the feedback from the employee surveys. You may have noticed how horribly the company did on the last one.
