Pros: my schedule, direct supervisor and manager (love'em)
Cons: no life work balance, poor hr decisions, people that don't care, no attention to people that work there, customer comes at the sacrifice of you
This was my 1st big company and I came here for a temporary time which turned into 10 years. I loved the challenge of making the goals and the rewards for being recognized for the work product I put out.
The sad change is that you are only a number, and the number doesn't count. I've been rated top 3 in the company and the reward for the work of the – more... eqivalent of perhaps 2 adjusters in any other major company yeilds to unsatisfactoy rewards.
The job security is nice, my custom schedule is nice and the time I have saved for vacation is as well. But, there is no time to benefit from the benefits.
Taking at one point a 35 hour work day (field work and travel with logistical issues) and asking for some sort of additional leave or job re-evaluation lead to being told that it's part of the job. No, I go above and beyond most of the other workers and give 135%. Don't recognize that and well, one can begin looking to see where all their friends and co-workers have gone. Looking at Facebook you see them smiling and lovin it.
My job is satisfying and set, but the environment is becoming more and more company focused and not associate based. Overtime is requested to fill the spots of all the people that are quiting. Maybe, they will learn when turn over increases to beyond what the building can handle.
GEICO has become the Walmart of insurance. Not a positive comparison. It's sad but I had so much hope. – less
