Stressful and unrewarding.
Customer Service II/Underwriter (Former Employee), Woodbury, NYJuly 15, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: management, job-life ratio, stress
Stressful and unrewarding. Nothing is ever good enough, even if you achieve a 5 rating in most areas, you are chewed out for the one 3 (which by the way is the company standard). You are expected to make your way to work even in a blizzard when your local government has issued a warning and urged you to stay indoors. No place for family life in this – more... company. – less

Work your own hours
Insurance Transcriptionist & Homemaker (Former Employee), Fredericksburg, VAJuly 14, 2014
A typical day at work consisted of picking a few hours a day to work.
I worked on deadlines.
The management was extremely helpful and responded within a timely manner.
There were no co-workers, I worked from my home.
The hardest part was being able to hear all the audio.
The most enjoyable was the flexibility I had working from home.

RUN, DON'T WALK AWAY FROM THIS JOB
insurance agent (Former Employee), Coralville, IAJuly 10, 2014
Pros: you become friends with your fellow trainees, like in an awful bootcamp
Cons: windowless, cheerless environment. you are nothing but a statistic
Do you want your every breath and gesture analyzed and given a number? Then this is the job for you. Soul-crushing. Promotions based on who can kiss ***the fastest and best. Current service leaders wear jackboots well.

Great company to work for and a great experience.
Sr. Underwriting Technician (Former Employee), Fredericksburg, VAJuly 8, 2014
Pros: for those on the telephones, numerous incentives for efficiency in completion of tasks, profit-sharing, in-house gift shop, gym and vendors were brought in to supplement for shopping time.
Cons: lunch time was too short (30 min) and only 1 fifteen min break
A typical day at work would be arriving at work, eating breakfast in the cafeteria and then on to the everyday posting and report completion and when required (2 hrs per day Monday, Wednesday and Friday) on the phones answering calls from customers; updating their accounts, answering their questions and offering additional benefits available to them. – more... The interaction with the customers was very satisfying when all of their questions/complaints could be handled within a minimum amount of time.

Management was typically active in visiting the sections and updating on any changes that need to be made, additional training needed and followed up to ensure that the changes were implemented. When inclement weather struck, the management implemented it's policy for that event. I know of no other company that will provide accommodations and meals to the employees who are not able to make it home because of said weather. They also provided transportation to and from said accommodations.

My co-workers were one of the best parts of the job. I met and am still conversing with approximately 20 individuals even though I am no longer living in Virginia and not working for GEICO.

Lastly, the hardest part of the job was going to work when it was dark and coming home when it is dark. – less

Challenging work environment
SUPERVISOR (Current Employee), Marlton, NJJuly 5, 2014
Responding to previous days e-mails and voice messages
Quick meeting with my group of Associates
Meeting with Management
Review previous production day numbers
The hardest part of the job is to get the management to understand the the morale of the associates and also to be able to sell the management views to the associates
Tho most enjoyable part – more... of the job is the family atmosphere of everyone working together for a common goal – less

Extremely stressfull, but great benefits.
Auto Damage Adjuster (Current Employee), Salt Lake City UtahJuly 5, 2014
GEICO is a good company if you don't mind working many hours off the clock, and constantly being critiqued for things that are mostly out of your control. A person tends to be a number expected to meet numbers. There is great job security and great benefits though, and they are growing constantly so there is opportunity if you put in the time at a lower – more... pay scale. – less

Felt like a slave
Claims Examiner (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 3, 2014
Pros: some benefits
Cons: big brother, tragic circumstances
exactly 30 min lunches, that means you need to walk to their cafeteria, get in line and get all of this while also enjoying lunch.
they record every phone call and treat you horribly if your tone is ever not pleasant.
1 hour of traffic to and from work, advancement was given to those that show no empathy towards another living person.
I wish my job – more... hadn't been to treat each person as a transaction.

you do not get paid sufficiently to be a grief counselor.
The situations you hear about can crush your heart, when you want to give someone a hug but instead must tell them they aren't covered because of this exclusion and that exclusion. how awful i felt. – less

LICENSED INSURANCE AGENT (Former Employee), Woodbury, NYJune 30, 2014
great training program and pay, but the company is not lenient at all with time off, you aren't really allowed to miss even a day during the 1st 6 months. But after that you do get your PTO/sick time, etc. Parking is atrocious, Sometimes you have to walk half a mile from your car to the entrance but overall its still a solid company to work for

Fast Pace Call Center Environment
Commercial Auto Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Fredericksburg, VAJune 26, 2014
Pros: strong benefits, in house gym and dining hall
Cons: short breaks, potential high stress
Typical day included taking anywhere between 20-50 customer calls with regards to their business auto policy. Strong training with regards to the insurance business and commercial insurance benefits. Learned how to be more professional and was trained on multiple different systems that would be used. Became independent of coaches and management unless – more... there was a unusual situation.

Job can be very stressful when busy, and enjoyable when slow. Lots of fun people, management tries to make the day go by faster by having themed days or bringing in food for everyone to enjoy.

Agent rating system for Commercial insurance is poorly conceived. – less

solid company but the pursuit to make a profit weighs on the work life balance of its employees
Trial Attorney (Current Employee), Melville, NYJune 23, 2014
Pros: financial stability
Cons: pursuit to be a low cost provider and make a bigger profit has cut into the quality of work life.
geico is a solid company financially and one of the Berkshire Hathaway companies. overall a decent company, but management in my professional department has tried to align itself with the corporate structure and that makes it difficult to practice law. the workload is too much and to try and balance a work and home life is very difficult.

Customer Service / Insurance Agent (Former Employee), PowayJune 23, 2014
Pros: benefit and caring about employees
Cons: things can change so fast not even management knows
GEICO is a great company to work for. They are very very supportive in training and home life. There are some hiccups in the training process simply due to trying to improve the process. Plenty of room to advance , just be prepared to work hard to make it happen.

Trained and managed sells staff. Sold Property and Casualty insurance to prospects over the phone and face to face in the office. Assist agency owne
Management, Marketing and Sales (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJune 18, 2014
Pros: meeting quote, team moral
Cons: low team moral and not meeting quotas
A typical day consist of assisting staff to sell property and casualty insurance within company guidelines and quality standard.

I learned to be patient with potential customers, how to be clear and concise when communicating.

Management was good however, lacked leadership. although I was part of management, i focused on employee moral and creative – more... sells tactics. My coworkers were knowledgeable and fund to work with. The hardest part of the job is selling to those that cannot afford the product.

The most enjoyable part of the job is when I met my quota of sells. – less
