    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 Management

    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

    Growth is off the charts. If you work for the right person your possibilities are endless. Pay in metro areas is pretty competitive and still decent in more rural areas. Profit sharing and 401k best around

    Cons

    Hours are very long. So process driven that soft skills are declining. Each region is like its own company, if you get in the wrong one your career screeches to a halt.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let growth and size ruin what made GEICO successful in the first place.

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits, good people, lots of shopping and good restaurants nearby. In some locations they have the only jobs that don't pay minimum wage.

    Cons

    limited opportunities for growth, favoritism and nepotism abound, You'll probably never get a promotion after you reach 35 because management believes that young people are inherently better and smarter.

    Advice to Management

    You guys probably should stop publishing pictures with your new officer announcements. It might be a little disheartening to employees to see all of those white male faces.

    Pros

    a small list of pros, benefits and coworkers.

    Cons

    Its a call center and Geico treats the employees as such. Every second you are in the office is being monitored. From the seconds you take after getting off a call to the minutes you take going to the bathroom. It can be a very overwhelming thing to get use to. Morale is often low and stress is high. You are treated like a number.
