I worked at USAA as an intern (less than an 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

    Former Employee - Mortgage in San Antonio, TX (US)

    I worked at USAA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has excellent benefits and many on campus services. Great customer service is part of the company reputation and is well deserved.

    Cons

    Be prepared to have every minute of your day timed and watched including restroom breaks and lunch. Time studies are done to account for every minute of the day and not meeting impossible goals will result in performance issues. 10 hour days and working every weekend is the norm. Even with all of the overtime, the workload is more than what can be accomplished.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set reasonable expectations and treat employees like mature adults.
