Current Employee - Manager in Chevy Chase, MD
Current Employee - Manager in Chevy Chase, MD

I have been working at GEICO full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Excellent stability; even through a bad economy, geico continues growth and is able to provide profit sharing to its employees
Good place to start careers; young college grads are trained and offered additional education to help develop them into more knowledgable employees.
Geico is embracing technology.

Cons

Old meets new; many people stay for a long time and hesitant to change, making it frustrating for younger workers.
Salary; salaries are low in comparison to other industries.
Environment; building and furniture are very old and outdated.
Work location; no work from home or hotelling accommodations.
Staffing; people make the company, but it is too difficult to get the staff you need to perform well in staff departments.
Rewards for hard work; annual merit raises are too limited, making it difficult to adequately reward your staff for their tireless effort.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Update your management policies to allow work from home programs. Try to better understand the resource needs of staff departments better. Upper management places the emphasis on insurance staff and doesn't seem to respect the essential needs of staff departments. People are getting very burned out and will leave when the economy picks up.

    Pros

    The pay was good and so are the benefits. They are open 24 hours so get a shift that works for you isn't that hard.

    Cons

    Alot of the mangers who work there have no idea what they are doing. Also with this being a call center environment it is like being in high school all over again with all the drama.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to send in company spy's to work jobs in the Macon location to see how inappropriate and unskilled the management is.

    TCR1 at GEICO

    Current Employee - TCR1 - Claims Adjuster in Lakeland, FL
    Current Employee - TCR1 - Claims Adjuster in Lakeland, FL

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Relatively easy job if you don't mind doing busy work and getting yelled at on the phone from time to time. If you aren't a "go getter" this is a great job to make a career out of. Profit sharing is awesome as well. There is a slow, but guaranteed climb to the top if you work hard and grind it out.

    Cons

    Boring. You are going to do the same thing over and over and over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys do a good job. Don't be afraid to reward someone for being awesome out of the blue.
