Good place to work, nice people, but senior technology management lacks understanding of technology.

ProsI worked at Geico Plaza in DC. Besides work, you can participate in various cultural/social/game activities. Great work-life balance. Nice people - friendly yet professional.

ConsThey are moving from Java to .Net & if you are a Developer, (even .Net), it's very chaotic.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to technology folks as far as technology goes.

Geico is an amazing organization to work for.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at GEICO

ProsGreat for recent graduates and young professionals. This company requires you to complete a comprehensive training program.

ConsTakes a while to receive pay increases. The only con is that the work load is always extremely high because recent graduates think they are above working for Geico, therefore they don't apply for some reason.
