    Pros

    Great support and management. Train you on everything and pay for your licensing. Work really hard to get you to succeed and promoted.

    Cons

    Busy call center atmosphere. You get 17-18 calls monitored monthly and if you miss 2 then you are considered failing. Calls harshly monitored, you can fail an entire call for the slightest thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure all trainers have the same, correct information. Calibrate more often, especially with updates/changes

    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.
