Cons: treatment of contractors
The people at USAA are very intelligent, motivated and successful.
The environment is good most of the time.
USAA is broken up into companies, then groups, then teams. Often, people do not work together well because everyone has their own orders from different chiefs.
If you are a contractor here, it's like boot camp. You're never allowed...anything, There are gyms on campus, employees can pay to use, contractors are not allowed. No benefits, no insurance, no negotiating pay, no company sponsored anything, no Christmas party invites for Contractors, either.
It's difficult to transition to employee from contractor. Contractor work time is limited to 1 year, then you're sent away. No matter who says you are a vital member of the team, 1 year!
This company is a stepping stone to start a career.
With Joe Robles gone now, 2015, who knows what will happen.
