The company is very flexible, the majority of people in my office are women
I haven't worked here long enough yet to give it a good review regarding what women should/shouldn't know.
Terrible when it comes to maternity leave.
Be prepared to be a competitor, if you're not comfortable working in a fast pace environment, performance-base in order to be promoted, meeting margins and so forth then this is not for you.
The good thing about this company is that it does seem to provide the same opportunities for hard working individuals regardless of gender. That being said, the company is severely understaffed when it comes to its claims departments. I have worked in several claims related departments, and in every department I was in, staffing was an issue. With such a large, market predominant company, one would think that they would place a higher priority on getting adequately staffed to boost morale for tenured employees. Many people burnout after awhile because the goals and expectations are unrealistic considering the staffing issues. Good benefits to include paid vacation, 401k (no dollar for dollar matching, though), disability, life insurance, vision, FSA, etc. Not conducive to family oriented individuals - expect long hours and even weekends as a regular occurrence. IF you have children and work on a desk, you will be drained to come home and help them with homework and probably won't have energy to make dinner from scratch. Sick leave is a joke. Sick leave is tied into your dependability score, which is a part of your rating as an associate. If you have poor dependability, it can be grounds for termination. To use sick leave, without being penalized, it needs to meet FMLA guidelines (e.g., a recurrent serious medical condition, pregnancy, etc). Average colds and flus are NOT covered under FMLA, and being that GEICO is a cubicle environment, people who are afraid of their dependability being impacted will come in to the office and expose others to their cold/flu. For those that do not take sick leave and have good dependability, there is no reward other than being able to keep your job. You are not able to cash out your sick or use it for vacation. even if it does qualify for FMLA coverage, you are only allowed 12 weeks of FMLA leave per year, even if you have multiple fmla related incidents come up (let's say you were pregnant, plus had diabetes, or migraines and they each required time off at different times). The sick leave requirements were one of the most complained about issues throughout the company, and has been for years, but no changes.
woman can be a supr., but you have to be willing to lie in court for them. when upper management targets an employee, its your job to pick them apart. woman donot reach upper management often.- 20 years+ experience..
It a good company, you can work from home
I have worked here for a long time. However, the work culture has changed dramatically in the past 2-3 years and where a 40-45 work week was fairly normal and the work load was reasonable, now it is a 50+ work week and the expectations are often unattainable - unless you want to put in around 60 hours a week ... Work/life balance for exempt employees is non existent unless you don't meet expectations
