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

    Pros

    The management is excellent in regards to both your regular supervisor and the managers above them. The environment as well is welcoming and friendly albeit quiet if you're not on the sales team.

    Cons

    When I left, the micro-management that started to become implemented was far too much. Every minute you're on off the phone was essentially monitored and use as an evaluation of you

    Also, they heavily sell the idea that you can make thousands upon thousands through bonus which is achievable but you have to really be in the upper tiers of the sales floor. If you aren't the hourly that you make isn't so much worth what the job entails.

  3. "Claims Adjuster"

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

    Pros

    -pay is great
    -benefits are even better
    -many opportunities for advancement
    -GEICO makes an effort to have a diverse workforce, even in Coralville, IA
    -training is more than sufficient

    Cons

    -it's a call center job
    -it's a call center job
    -did i mention it's a call center job?
    -management is cult-like in it's worship of the company and Warren Buffett. you'll basically be indoctrinated into how great GEICO is as a company because management believes if you love GEICO, you'll be a more effective sales/cs rep. (not unlike any other company, tbh)
    -many of the opportunities for advancement that they advertise are basically still call center rep positions, except you get to take even more phone calls
    -schedule will not usually be 9-5, M-F

    Advice to Management

    it's an unreasonable request, but please be less cult-like in your approach to training sales agents and be forthcoming about the threat auto insurers face from self-driving cars for employees looking to build a career with the company

    Pros

    pay is good and always opportunity for a raise . every year the have whats called merit rise and depending on your performance from the past year you can get a raise on your base pay

    Cons

    performance metrics are always changing. monthly goals change to frequently. by the time an employee has a chance of improving his/hers score card the metric has changed again

    Advice to Management

    Be constant when it comes to score metrics. leaders should help employees master the score card before moving on to a new goal

    Pros

    Great benefits, profit sharing is great, great people to work with. I enjoy being able to get off at a reasonable time and the ability to switch Saturday's if something comes up

    Cons

    Stressful, constantly busy, Saturday's working are terrible, only 6 minutes of personal time, lunch options are very over priced. If you like change this isn't a good job for you

    Advice to Management

    More staffing

    Pros

    They are a great company to work for and only want you to succeed. They invest a lot of time into you.
    The benefits are great and as long as you accept it for what it is, you will thrive.
    The 401K really helped
    Training is provided and all your insurance appointments are kept up with.
    There are a lot of great people that work there
    You get what you put in it. If you want to be a worker Bee its a great place there are lots of phone jobs.
    There is lots of room for movement all over the company.

    Cons

    It is a call center so expect to be talking a lot on the phone
    The stakes are high. There is a quality assurance team and they monitor all the time. There are 10 calls monitored a month and you are graded monthly on the calls
    This is not a 9 to 5 job you have to be prepared to work all different schedules based on your performance. If you do well you get the good schedule. This can be a pro or a con based on your attitude and personality.

    Advice to Management

    Overall I think that management is Great! I loved the managers and supervisors I worked with. Thats not to say that there are a few that need to work on their people skills. I had a couple of managers that seemed like they didn't care much for the people working for them as they did for the performance. Honestly, you will get that with any company you work for.
