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

    Pros

    Not extremely demanding or stressful environment. If you choose to stay for over 7 years, you are fully vested in profit sharing

    Cons

    benefits are terrible, no insurance for 3 months, promotions only tenure based, not merit based, pay is below industry average, not many holidays off, no teleworking, lack of flexibility, no maternity/paternity leave

    Advice to Management

    You need to show better appreciation of employees, many company wide policies are archaic and need a complete overhaul, don't treat analysts like call center employees

    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.)

    I worked at GEICO as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits. Good annual bonus

    Cons

    Horrendous work-life balance. GEICO expects your blood but does not return the favor in appreciation or money. Being sick if negatively frowned-upon. Taking vacation is a challenge. Very stressful and draining

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up on employees taking time off and get rid of the 24/7 on-call demands.

    Pros

    Very stable, as long as you show up on time, and do non-zero work, you will keep your job.
    Turnover is high, which gives you a lot of opportunities to do meaningful work while you're still brand new.

    Cons

    Things move slowly. It can take years to go from a completed project to actually putting the product into the business.
    Upper management is solid, but a lot of middle management lacks experience.
    Due to high turnover many are promoted due to need rather than being ready for leadership.
    Salary is OK, it's enough to live on, but it pays less than the rest of industry. That is the main reason for the turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay, modernise policies, and improve speed of innovation. Keep up the ethical standards. The corporate ethics is one of the strongest in Corporate America.
