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

    Pros

    Great pay, lots of room for advancement

    Cons

    Attendance policy is ridiculous, as a mother with no family in the area when emergencies come up leaving or taking a day off negatively affects your attendance.

    I worked at GEICO full-time

    Pros

    Career Advancement and Profit Sharing

    Cons

    No Work/Life Balance. If you call out sick it goes against your dependability which is silly. Micromanaging isn't always a good and can hinder relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on trying not to have such a high turnover and look for ways to improve work/life balance. Doesn't make sense to train someone for months only to have them leave after a few months on the job.

    I have been working at GEICO full-time

    Pros

    Training is the best part but I would say watch your back when on the floor. Benefits are so-so but have to wait 90 days to receiving them. It's a call center job so not for everyone but has some incentives for sales but be mentally prepared to make calls all day for 8hrs. It's a corporate job so "branding" is based off how well you are doing or how much you are liked. If you don't have a life outside of work this is perfect.

    Cons

    Very cliquish and high school mentality. Nothing is just kept between you and your colleagues. Somehow everything gets back to management. They are number driven. Many people are just surviving on energy drinks, Adderall, Xanax and junk food. Not the healthiest environment with the stress and sitting down for 8hrs.

    Advice to Management

    See people as people and not just be number driven. There is a reason there is a high turnover rate.

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

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, awesome training, family environment.

    Cons

    Micromanage all the time. Everything is a number game. Promotions and new positions are for people who know how to be best friends with supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Give the employees a break. Don't hound when someone needs a breather after being on the phone non stop.

    Pros

    Make your own schedule, semi-autonomous, decen pay.l

    Cons

    Always adding.to job scope. Not enough time to complete all required tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Life in the field is a lot different than it looks from 10,000 feet in the air. Remember that someone actually has to put into action all your grandiose ideas.

    Pros

    Management is very encouraging. It isn't as bad as a lot of people make it out to be. Work hard, listen to what your manager is telling you even when you are having you're own opinion about something. Great benefits, good pay, I can't complain.

    Cons

    Parking lot is a cluster. Smoking area is on a loading dock. Customers get super annoying at times. (Don't loose focus!)

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for giving me a supervisor who matches my personality and knows how to train me based on my personality.
