    The worst company I have ever worked for, hands down.

    Current Employee - Sales Representative in Coralville, IA

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

    Pros

    Good benefit package, although not cheap.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, unrealistic goals, not enough incentive, low morale, next to non-existant raises. You typically don't hear about something you are doing right, only what you could be doing better or what you are doing wrong. With the exception of a couple of supervisors and some very nice coworkers, this place is an absolute hell. There is no consideration for your family life or life outside of GEICO. When made aware of problems, whether with the equipment (computers) or something else, management just brushes it off and you end up getting penalized because you missed your numbers -- even though you are not provided with the working tools always. You are mostly threatened with disciplinary actions and termination. They set sum zero goals where only half of the people can hit or exceed them, and the other half is, therefore, by default missing them. Yet, 100% of us are required to somehow hit these goals. It is mathematically impossible. The bonus structure is ridiculous -- 'the dangling carrot' style. The management plays favorites and pick their stars -- their system makes it impossible for everyone to have a fair shot at making the extra money. Keeps getting worse by the month!!! Don't work here- you will literally hate life!!! And if you do decide to work here, you may want to stock up on some antidepressants, anti anxiety meds, and energy drinks. Cheers!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting with inability. Get the educated professionals who can do the job and retain people instead of keeping the revolving door open. Try treating employees as they are not numbers but human beings. Adopt to changes -- what worked fifty years ago may not work today -- things change! Most of your employees cringe and dread coming in to work.

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

    Pros

    Cafeteria in the building for lunch breaks. Annual bonuses. Great coaches/trainers that really work close with you to help guide you towards success.

    Cons

    Very close supervision (could be a positive if you like this sort of thing.) You will work strapped down to a desk as a robot. You work. You do not think. Know your role. You are also working in an extremely competitive industry. Insurance is a take away business. I would suggest using this job as a stepping stone to another insurance company that requires more experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more unified and progressive.
