Geico is an amazing organization to work for.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at GEICO

ProsGreat for recent graduates and young professionals. This company requires you to complete a comprehensive training program.

ConsTakes a while to receive pay increases. The only con is that the work load is always extremely high because recent graduates think they are above working for Geico, therefore they don't apply for some reason.

Love Geico so far, wish I had done it years ago

Sr. Outside Investigator (Current Employee)

I have been working at GEICO full-time for less than a year

ProsPay, benefits, perks, yearly bonus. My supervisor is great and extremely supportive. The team atmosphere is great also. I love merit based raises, you get what you put into it

ConsNone so far. I'm sure at some point there will be less than rosy days, but as of now that's not the case.

Advice to Senior ManagementComputer systems could use some tweeking

You Choose Your Own Career Path At GEICO

Home Owners Insurance Agent (Current Employee)
Getzville, NY

I have been working at GEICO full-time for more than a year

ProsYou are responsible for how far you want to go. The opportunities are there if you CHOOSE to take advantage of them as some people do. Other just sit comfortably where they are and GEICO has no problem with that. Everybody helps everybody so it is a great support system there. 99% of the managers and supervisors are extremely pleasant to work for, easy to get a long with, and are exceptionally friendly. The pay is great and so are the bonuses. The benefits package is as good as it gets. If customer service is for you, this is definitely the place to work. I will also add, there are PLENTY of positions available that are not phone jobs and you can start applying for them after only a couple months of working there so getting off the phones is rather easy to do.

ConsThere are only cons if you create them for yourself. Most people don't like to hear it but it is a real job. So yes, managers monitor calls to ensure you know what you're doing, they are very structured just like any other major company, and have the basic dress code, again, like any other major company. They don't do all this to punish you but rather, to make sure you are on top of your game. The managers don't yell or get mad if you make a mistake. They have a friendly chat with you and encourage you to do better.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep On Pushing For More Company Growth!
