I.H.R. (In-House Retirement) for Accountants

Staff Accountant (Current Employee)
Chevy Chase, MD

I have been working at GEICO full-time for more than 3 years

ProsEasy workload. Decent salary. You get your own cubicle.

ConsGEICO is a low-cost provider. The company treats EVERYTHING as a cost as opposed to an investment. People come to GEICO to gain starter experience, then jump ship quickly before they get into IHR mode. I'm about to do the same within the next year.

The Accounting department is a place for lifers who just want to come to work, sit around, and collect an easy paycheck. There is very little incentive to work harder because promotions are often based on seniority. Once promoted, people love to sit back and coast.

Advice to Senior ManagementRETIRE. All senior management are in their late 50s and early 60s. Tony Nicely is nearing 80. Get some younger people fast-tracked to senior management roles so that they can revamp this dinosaur of a company and attract smart, young talent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
