Geico has weird ways of doing things. Here are they:
1.Geico keeps rotating employees and many times you end up with a lead/manager who knows nothing in the new domain. By the time they learn, they go to new team and story repeats.
2.contractor do not get parking if he is working in chevy chase. no way to park, you end up paying $14 per day at paid parking nearby. free parking is only for full timers. also contractor cannot avail carpool.
3.Geico offers contact to hire. When offered full time after 3 month contact, they offer one designation and while hiring they change the designation to some lower designation. Also salary. You are stuck because you are under the thinking that they will give what they promised, but it is not the case.
4.When offered full time, Geico benches the new hire for 2 months, WITHOUT PAY after he is selected for full time job & after 3 months of contracting. This is done in the name of background check. The new hire has no way to survive, as his/her three month contact ended and no other full time jobs in hand.
5.Geico is stingy. Do not expect complimentary coffee/tea, anything. You have to buy or bring your own coffee machine and use it in the office kitchen. Always there are 6-7 machines always there brought by employees.
6.Geico salaries are very less compared to other companies. If you are looking for competitive salary, this is not the place to be.
7.Geico is strict in timings.So people work exactly 8 hours. Many I know has second job after office, because they could not survive with one job.
safe job, time to time job
less pay, strict work timings, no free coffee/tea
