    I worked at GEICO (More than a year)

    Pros

    Potential compensation and benefits. Also your promotions are performance based so it's completely on you to get paid more. Very free from politics.

    Cons

    Very repetitive work. Inbound call center so it's back to back calls and burn out is high. Some supervisors nitpick over break length and are minute watchers and clearly do not understand that they are their to help you not punish you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging.

    I worked at GEICO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Unlimited advancement opportunities for those who work for it. Easy to move up with hard work. Excellent pay and benefits, profit sharing, and 401k. Pays for college classes and books to further your career. Not just a job but a career.

    Cons

    As a call center it can be very stressful handling 80-110 calls per day. If you're up for the challenge, it's an overall great company.

    Advice to Management

    Management was fantastic. Quarterly rewards for employees, annual raises based on performance, constant feedback to help you improve yourself.

    Pros

    Training is excellent! Benefits and time off accumulation is fair. The company is always looking to promote from within and tries to motivate employees with gamification

    Cons

    If you're doing well expect little feedback. You're practically rewarded with time off the phone if your numbers are bad to have an hour long chit chat with your supervisor. There's always one or two supervisors that hate their job, and you ask them for help and you practically get shut down.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a monetary incentive for lateral promotion

    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.
