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

    Pros

    Friendly, caring, family oriented. The Local GEICO Office in Savannah Georgia works as a team.

    Cons

    The corporate office mandates a phone script that is monitored and must be followed exactly with no variation. This can make sales more difficult, removing individuality.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, the management is exceptional!
