I worked at USAA as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Interesting team based work
Got to meet with lots of senior management

Cons

Could tell our work wasn't really needed. They were more or less scouting out our talent to see if they wanted to recruit us.
Very conservative company.
Even if you work super hard you won't be promoted much faster than anyone else

    I have been working at USAA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice physical office and property. Nice parking garage. Great security on-site

    Cons

    Extremely condescending new-hire manager for the insurance classes. Job is extremely micromanaged by a bunch of policies set by simpletons that would sink in the real world if it were not for their "diversity".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its sad to see how your continuing to ruin a great company with your incompetence.

    Stop outsourcing to companies that do not value their employees or step up to help those struggling.

    I worked at USAA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    USAA itself seems to be a good company with great benefits and wages but the companies it outsources to (Teletech in particular) are awful.

    Cons

    Using third party contractors that do not care for their employees beyond the scope of what did you get for your last MSAT score does not help the company. At the third party company I used to work for, people were treated very poorly. If you were sick, instead of healing at home they would make you sit beside a garbage can and take calls. If you are in the emergency room, in a car wreck or something else unfortunate happened, they did not care. You would be threatened to be fired for anything. The third parties USAA contracts with does not train their employees, does not give raises ever (instead they pocket any money USAA gave us for raises), and constantly threaten to fire people for anything, including missing work for Jury duty or Military Drills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take an active interest in the welfare of the employees working at the outsourced sites beyond a mere glance, after all these people service your members too.
