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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    GEICO 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 ManagementAdvice

    RETIRE. 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.

    I worked at GEICO full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great job security, almost impossible to get fired. Not a lot of long hours. Recognized brand; better location than a lot of other insurance companies.

    Cons

    Low salary; high bureaucracy; very similar to working for the government (salary structure is explicitly modeled after it with "grades"). Difficult to see advancement except through going through "the regions" or just sheer waiting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can probably save a lot of money on consultants if you just hired competent people and paid them what they were worth.
