    Helped me grow my skills in attention to detail and effective communication to convey my thoughts concisely.

    Sometimes it's hard to get a desirable shift depending on the department but with the pay you really can't complain.

    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.

    I have been working at GEICO full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The good.... Profit sharing, great benefits, time off, GREAT bonus' in sales, 401k, security.

    Cons

    The bad.... Even if you find a way to eventually get off the phones and become a supervisor you have a better chance of winning the lottery than becoming a manager. There is a chosen few by upper management that "they" know who they will let get to that level and even most of them work their tails off to get ahead. You are expected to stay on the phones every minute you are there. They micro manage like nothing I've ever experienced. At the end of the day its a call center and call centers are difficult to deal with at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The UGLY.... Management stop thinking of us as number and start to get to know your employees.

    Pros

    no ceiling on commission. 401k matching.

    Cons

    They regulate - to the second - how much time you have spent in the bathroom, on lunch, off the phone etc. Top salesmen are robots that take all OT possible to get top comission. Bonuses/commission are not based off what you sell but where you are in relation to all others. You are treated like you are 5.

    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.
