    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

    Benefits are awesome. You will not find better medical insurance and everyone looks forward to profit sharing. Company contributes 10% of your salary to your 401k each year which is pretty sweet.

    Cons

    Closure based selling goals. The company cares more about you selling a certain ratio of your calls than about answering the phone. It is the McDonald's of insurance and makes sure you know how expendable you are. Revolving door of phone counsellors and low level supervisors because of the ridiculous expectations of management. Unless you get into to a fast track program there is little opportunity for advancement. Politics and nepotism rampant especially in the Macon office. Benefits as great as they are not worth the stress. Company is making a concerted effort to get rid of tenured agents.

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out of your rear ends and look at what you are doing to the people who actually do the most important jobs in the company, deal with the customer. The phone agents are still being treated like red headed stepchildren while you fast track people right out of college into management.

    Pros

    Good benefits.
    Decent pay for entry level.
    Training time off the phones was maybe the highlight of the whole experience.

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance. Don't expect to work anything other than for days a week meaning ten hour days. I was adamant that I was focused on school during the interview and was assured they would work with me. I was terribly disappointed as time went on it became more and more apparent that this was a fantasy. I was explicit about wanting a normal morning five day schedule and in the beginning was told there were plenty of opportunities, but as time went on when I asked I was literally laughed at for even thinking it was possible. Tried to position myself for switching to part-time and they claimed they would get back to me but never did for months. When I tried to inquire about it they would essentially say later. Would not recommend this job to any students.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lead employees on with false hope. And seriously work on communication.

    Pros

    Geico reward you based on your performance not because your "nice" I loved it when it was profit sharing time!

    Cons

    The work load is quite intense. You would have to multitask quickly to be successful.
