    Pros

    Great pay & benefits. Room for growth. Discounts on various vendors. There are a lot of things to learn on this job. Always classes to sign up for and extra training.

    Cons

    VERY strict dependability. No work life balance. Sometimes quite difficult to get time off- even in emergency situations so make sure you have a backup plan for your backup plan.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that people have lives outside of work. Allow more flexibility

    I have been working at GEICO full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the company for quite some time. The lower grade entry jobs are hard and stressful for not a lot of pay, but that is part of doing the grunt work. I don't see that as any different than any other company. The PRO here is that there are a lot of growth opportunities within the company locally or moving to other regions. Many have even gone from functional areas such as on the phones to working in IT. If you show a willingness to grow, they will help you with it.

    Benefits have been hands down the best part. Most departments and people I have worked with have been wonderful and worked as a team.

    Cons

    Sometimes goals feel unattainable depending on the department.

    They are very old school when it comes to telecommuting. It barely exists. It isn't needed for the phone units, but there are several departments where this would be a huge benefit and be helpful to boosting moral. If an employ can't handle it, don't let them do it. But don't take it away from those that would actually improve or benefit from it if they can prove they can handle it.

    Advice to Management

    I think it is time for the remote work policies to be revised. There are plenty of employees that could benefit from this and actually may perform at a higher level if given this opportunity. By not having an option for more telecommuting, I feel we are missing out on many other talents in larger markets because we expect them to move to a regional office. In some cases, the offices they work in are in a different state or time zone than where their supervisors and managers work from. So, in essence they are working remote, but in an office environment.
