    I have been working at GEICO (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love working for GEICO. I wish I stated here right out of college. I love the family environment and the awesome management. GEICO has always taken care of me. GEICO is such a great company to work for!

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons. I have read though a lot of the other cons and I am sad that everyone hasn't had the great experience i have had at GEICO.

    Advice to Management

    The management is great! They are always working for their people and do everything they can to help them out. One this I will say is that they are really busy. If I had to give management advice i would say please make more time for your people.

    Pros

    Great Team environment. Supervisors are helpful. Benefits are above par. Geico believes in training its employees. You are always well prepared to do your job.

    Cons

    Such a large company that it is hard to be heard as a lower employee. They do a lot of round table meetings but little to nothing come of those meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your lower employees. They are the direct link to your customers.

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

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits and great opportunities

    Cons

    Very high goals to handle 2 major parts of your job. You have to take a certain amount of claims and handle a certain amount of claims.

    Advice to Management

    Review the claims handlng job itself. The job could be more organized in the sense that you can have a team take new claims and a team that handles claims. That would be less stressful to have to do both.

    Pros

    Great benefits and many departments to chose from. Growth potential is unlimited. Great family atmosphere and working environment. Flexible schedules. Great pay.

    Cons

    Some hours can be complicated. Alot of drama in some departments. Show less favoritism. Be less strict on dependability and monitor on a case by case.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on numbers and more on the people and their skills

    I worked at GEICO full-time

    Pros

    Air conditioning is a plus in Florida summer.

    Cons

    Everything else. You are a number only. A cog in the wheel. You are fully aware you are considered expendable. I realize this is corporate America and there is a bottom line but when you constantly run off your top performers by refusing to pay them don't be surprised you have incompetent adjusters handling serious claims they are not qualified to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair and do what is right. The bottom line is important but stopping cutting off your nose to spite your face.
