Pros

GEICO promotes from within before hiring outside of the company. Has very reasonable workloads. Great job security.

Cons

Pays for time in job, not work performance. Difficult to advance based on the merit of work. Stagnant IT force. Management has very difficult time identifying top talent.

Advice to Management

Identify IT talent and hold onto it.

    Severe supervision in phone units. Every move you make is tracked. You can never escape the advertising GEICO does.

    Pros

    Good pay for starting and many opportunities for advancement. Great profit sharing every year. Good benefits with 401k and flexible work schedules. Many departments you can advance to in the same area or nationwide.

    Cons

    Micro management on all levels with very challenging goals. Almost impossible to meet all goals. The company rules for quality and underwriting a policy can change on a daily basis. You must expect to adapt to a changing environment to be the low cost provider with a max profit margin. Learning new material will be part of your daily requirements so try not to miss any time off of work because there will be a lot of catching up to do. You must be there at least 97% of the time or you will fail to meet dependability requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have a daycare center even if we must pay a little extra for it. Will be better for the office culture. A multi billionaire company should be able to have some program for the GEICO families when comes to daycare.
