    Pros

    All kinds of unique perks! (on-site parties, NFL tickets, auctions, trips, etc.)

    Cons

    Corporate locations are somewhat far from common living areas. Commute will be long unless you can afford the expensive areas close to the location.

    Advice to Management

    Expand your recruiting techniques. Use online job board more often (Monster, Careerbuilder, LinkedIn, etc.)

    Pros

    You can move sideways, up, down, it's all up to what you want from working at Geico. Most managers have an open door policy (or open communicator, or open email, whatever).

    Cons

    Since you can leave your team so easily, you have a lot of instability within teams. However, that makes working at Geico more organic, more evolved, than if you were stuck in the same place doing the same thing forever.

    You do have to wait a while to participate in profit sharing rather than getting matching 401k right out the door, but practically everyone that works here works for decades.

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

    Pros

    Endless opportunities all over the country, in nearly every area or specialty you could possibly think of. Great culture. Competitive compensation. Profit sharing. Job security - owned by Berkshire Hathaway. Great work/life balance, particularly at the headquarters in DC however this will vary based on the department you work in (regional office, field, etc.).

    Cons

    Vacation accrual on a per-paycheck basis... takes time to build up when you first start. I previously worked in claims and it was a stressful position, with processes changing at a fast pace.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making us profitable so we continue to get fat profit-sharing checks!
