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

    Pros

    None, horrible company to work for!

    Cons

    The worst company to work, save your time and apply for job at another company. As a claims rep your just micro managed way too much and very strict core metrics. There is no work/life balance, very stressful.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work ...employees are so well easy going for such a high demanding job

    Cons

    Job has been made more difficult due to management forcing rating system as #1 option .....so much work,so little time ...underpaid

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about ratings so much and start caring into helping examiner with the workload that's obviously way too much

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

    Pros

    Profit sharing. Need to stay 2 years to receive but worth it (from what I hear). Full benefits and 401k.

    Cons

    Over worked, under appreciated. Company prides itself as a low cost provider to reduce rates for their customers. In doing so, you work on antiquated systems and a run down work environment. Hard work is compensated with minuscule promotions and giveaways like "good parking spots" or "Ducks tickets" (not the mighty ones...) It's a tremendously large company and they arent lying about the opportunity to move up; mainly because of the immense turnover in the claims department. If you can stick it out, you may just work your way up.. into more claims. And from there, you can go onto supervise claims adjuster. Pay is competitive but on the lower spectrum compared to other companies. A great entry level opportunity with room to grow but that's if you can handle the stress for being dealt an unrealistic amount of work and unrealistic goals. Finally, rules and regulations are constantly changing and there are constantly contradicting themselves. Causes more mayhem in an already chaotic environment.

    Advice to Management

    None. They're in this mess with you.

    Pros

    Opportunity to make a lot of money. Raises are consistent and in the early years of working in the Sales Department can be quite large. You get rewarded for doing well and in the first year I received raises totaling over $12,000. However, these raises get smaller the longer you are with the company. The company is very diverse and encourages diversity. Profit Sharing each year is also a nice perk, along with tuitions reimbursement and great health benefits.

    Cons

    Micro -Management
    Stressful Goals
    Constant Changes
    Hire outside of company for certain management positions.

    Advice to Management

    There are current employees who are more than equipped to take management positions. Perhaps encouraging and supporting current employees to be promoted should be considered. The morale is often down when you have your Supervisor or Manager asking you questions, when they don't have true knowledge of the job and are your superiors.
