    Pros

    Most of the people are extremely young and right out of college. You get to move up very quickly and gain a lot of experience and responsibility. A lot of face time with upper level management. Good place to work for a short amount of time.

    Cons

    Lower than market salaries, they promote on tenure not worthiness, and the executives are very old and set in their ways. They also care more about saving costs than their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the change in the market and your employees than always saving costs.

    I worked at GEICO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    pay was fantastic, benfits were good

    Cons

    very micromanaged not able to have an opinions, high stress environments leading to unhealthy and needing to use any and all available time off, rude managers, and poor info provided i quite after 11/2 because anxiety and migrains which 95 % of people complain about who work their crapy computers and head set in addition to an over the top micromanagement some one always finding a way you could have done something different or better not worth the pay when you go home every days sick and cranky

    Advice to Management

    less managers looking over shoulders finding flaws and more room for opinion to micromanaged from call maps to word tracks making everyone sound like a dam computure lacking real compassion or empathy more manager help on upset customers verses us being on calls for 45 plus mins getting screamed at for something that you cant help and still offering to transfer to property and maybe more managers that actually take the calls so the agents are not killing the cod(calls oer day) and or a ci oppotunity when clearly we can cut the cost or pay their bill .....
