    I have been working at GEICO full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great collaborative environment. I work on a team that is both talented and fun.
    Benefits are better than average. GEICO sent me to a hands-on training opportunity at a well-known conference within my first 4 months to invest in me by helping me develop my career skills further.
    Very open to new ideas and team member contributions.

    Cons

    Profit sharing takes more than one year to take effect (I started in May '16 and won't see any profit sharing until Feb '18).
    Company is a bit more frugal than most.
    Virtually no vacation or leave possible in the first 6 months.

    I have been working at GEICO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are willing to help you out. Everyone is super laid back and the company is really stable to work at.

    Cons

    I work in IT and they are behind in that regard. They are also very slow to promote and only care about putting people from the executive leadership program in management positions.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, I have a Masters degree in IT and I still can't get to promoted to management because I wasn't part of the executive leadership program
