    I worked at GEICO

    Pros

    Benefits; numerous career path options (if willing to relocate); sustained success, bright future

    Cons

    Not very competitive salaries for those that are strongly educated until you've worked your way up to an officer position.
    Employees could be treated better, often treated as an expendable commodity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget that while the customer is the end-user and important piece of a successful business, the front-line employees are the ones that will carry out that vision. They need to be treated better than just a performance scorecard.

    Pros

    Great company, decent vacation and time off.

    Cons

    Office changed with new management, nothing happened with complaints to HR about employees with serious or constant offences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR should know their policy better and management should be allowed to reprimand employees as needed.

    Pros

    Growth is off the charts. If you work for the right person your possibilities are endless. Pay in metro areas is pretty competitive and still decent in more rural areas. Profit sharing and 401k best around

    Cons

    Hours are very long. So process driven that soft skills are declining. Each region is like its own company, if you get in the wrong one your career screeches to a halt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let growth and size ruin what made GEICO successful in the first place.

    Pros

    opportunities for advancement abound. Strong training program. Great benefits and a real profit sharing payout.

    Cons

    Micro management to the 10th degree. Customer service based goals- you can handle your file by the book but if a customer scores you poorly on a survey, then all your effort was for nothing. Too many responsibilities for one person. Too many responsibilities for one person. Again, too many responsibilities for one person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a realistic look at the goals, expectations set for employees and remember that we are not robots.

    Pros

    Your coworkers are awesome. They provide really good continuous training plus excellent management support. The benefits can't be matched for a job requiring basically no experience. There is a very strong GEICO culture which they try to promote, makes you proud o work for such an excellent company. 90% of the time they promote from within.

    Cons

    There is sometimes a delay in notifying associates of changes. You are very micromanaged, almost overly so. You will always be on the phone, but you get used to it over time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A happy associate is an efficient associate. Don't focus so much on the numbers, that you lose sight of the human aspect of your work force.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, interesting and meaningful analysis, good location.

    Cons

    Focus on retaining experienced associates rather than hiring and training entry levels.
