    I worked at GEICO full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Stable Job, good benefits 2. Warren Buffet owns this company

    Cons

    1. Very old fashioned company 2. "old boys" club in lower and middle management 3. Many managers and leads do not have college degrees

    Advice to Management

    Please move people around. Many lower management folks are so comfortable in their positions, that they rarely do a good job. If it was not for the low compensation, you would not be able to make money with this crew that you have in place.

    I worked at GEICO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great employee environment, stable company. GEICO has not had any layoffs in the last 30+ years, so stability is nice. Benefits are great - I left to join the Federal Gov't, and GEICO's benefits were superior. GEICO's HQ is in Chevy Chase, MD, which has tons of ammenities.

    Cons

    Cheap management, easy to get lost in the crowd, little room for advancement. There is little flexibility for work/life issues. Most departments are large, and they tend to promote from within, so you're constantly competing against coworkers for advancement. They're cheap - the building was built in the 1960's and is showing its age, but they keep refusing to redevelop their site.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee development

    GEICO is a great place to work right after college. You will learn a lot of skills that will be useful in your career plus you have great hours and a lot of co-workers around your age. The benefits are great too!

    Pros

    Great training on actuarial and technical skills, opportunity to present to senior management

    Cons

    Uncompetitive but manageable salary, horrible building, raises barely keep up with inflation, high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Realize that DC is has an extremely high cost of living and the salaries are not competitive. Low salaries can be dealt with if you don't have to deal with a building over 60 years old.
