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

Pros

Base Pay to start entry level, promotes from within

Cons

Stressful job, hence the high turnover, hard to get promoted

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's understandable that you need to have your agents on the phones but the tendency to get burned out is extremely high. People are not robots and have frustrations and a natural competitive edge to succeed, try to prolong the burn-out phase by giving more breaks from calls to regroup. I feel that would lead to higher morale and lower turnover.

    Current Employee - Insurance Sales in Woodbury, NY

    I have been working at GEICO full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Can start at any level and move up. It depends on how hard you work and how people perceive you (pro and con). If you take business courses you can get into a management position. You can relocate to any State they have a brick and mortar building. They encourage this and is the best way to move up.

    Cons

    Have to drink the cool-aid. You probably will not get anywhere if you don't. Do NOT be late or take an emergency day off. It WILL count against you. Expected to be at work no matter what--even with several feet of snow. ll management cares about is numbers not the people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales and service employees have lives too. Be respectful.
