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

    Pros

    You get paid to show up there.

    Cons

    Many many moons ago, USAA was a honest, respectable employer. This company violates labor and state statutes. USAA is a greedy, massive insurance giant who will treat you like an employee number and nothing else. This place is a preverbial turnstyle for hiring and firing. Do your research, they are countless ex employee claims for wrongful termination. If you talk to a person who has been there for any length of time, they will tell you that they are the only one from their training class. You will be required to get to work early to start up your computer, log on to your phone and you won't be compensated for this time. If you show up to work right when your shift starts you will be considered late. Agents are non-commisioned, but they will ride you constantly if you aren't selling enough and even if you are selling enough. They pressure you into trying to sell other products and services to every customer that calls in under the guise of their mission. If someone calls in to have their insurance ID cards sent to them they want you to try and sell them life insurance and or an investment product. USAA is one of the largest anti gun lobbyist in the nation and defies the Florida State Statute 790., firearm parking lot law. If it is found that you have a firearm on their property they will fire you, no questions asked. They don't provide an armed escort to and from work either. The fact is USAA does not care about the saftey of their employees, they see firearms as a liability and they don't want to get sued. If you are desperate then all means apply at USAA, if not, then don't work there. You'll be unhappy and you will have your rights deliberetly violated each and every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Brass: Take a good look in the mirror and think what the 20 officers that started the company would think about your behavior. You should be ashamed.
