September 2019 • Getzville, NY

What I liked

What I wish was different

Working remotely due to covid made it more difficult to reach out to management for quick assistance and I prefer the in person contact that we had leading up to March. It helps me stay focused and motivated.

business leadership intern

June - July 2019 • Tucson, AZ

What I liked

The atmosphere. The people at GEICO are very welcoming and willing to help.

What I wish was different

The internship was not very structured and I wish we had more hands-on tasks and fewer seminars.

Advice

Ask questions, make friends. It seems like you won't need to do this, but that's what I wish I would've done more from the start.

Business Leadership Intern

June - August 2019 • Richardson, TX

What I liked

The internship was very helpful in determining whether or not you would be a good fit for GEICO. In addition, the internship did not just involve "manual labor," but creative problem-solving on different problems facing GEICO. We presented our recommendations to the Senior VP of the Dallas Office.

What I wish was different

I can't really think of anything!

Advice

Make sure to network with whomever you meet and always take initiative when you can help.

Leadership Intern

May - August 2019 • Macon, GA

What I liked

I liked the program's structure, the mentors, and the pay! I felt like we were doing real work for the company and solving problems with excellent guidance. I made some great friends and learned the ups and downs of both insurance and what it's like to live a 9 to 5 lifestyle.

What I wish was different

The housing that they provided was awful although they are improving upon that. Additionally, there was a very wide array of maturity levels and intentions for taking the internship which made some team members frustrating. Finally, we had to work with another regional office and the rivalry was too strong by the time we worked together, resulting in less productivity and collaboration.

Advice

I would say find a mentor immediately, don't be afraid to ask questions, and don't take yourself too seriously. Feel out the crowd that you are working with and realize that although this is a corporate internship it's okay to make friends and goof off a little. Also, get ready to work in a LOT of teams, some that will have incapable people, loud people, but some awesome people.

What I liked

A lot of teamwork and projects that include teal business problems

Business Leadership Summer Intern

May - August 2019 • Macon, GA

What I liked

The quality of this internship was incredible! From day one, the leadership team at GEICO encouraged their interns to "dig in" to real business problems that the company is facing. They utilized us as consultants of sorts, tasking us with coming up with solutions to pain points across several lines of business. And in one case, we actually proposed a solution that was placed into effect within a week or two. They truly listened to our ideas and encouraged us to look deep into data, beyond the surface of problems, and into the root causes.

What I wish was different

Honestly, this internship was perfect.

Advice

The doors of upper management are wide open... Seek guidance as often as possible and build relationships with the leaders of this billion dollar business.

Business Leadership Intern

June - July 2019 • Tucson, AZ

What I liked

GEICO is very focused on increasing growth opportunities for associates. The four projects we completed as interns incorporated that growth mindset and exposed us to all areas of the auto-insurance business. We learned about the day-to-day operations from an associate, supervisor, and manager perspective as well as having sessions with corporate executives (including an in-person session with the CEO) that helped develop our understanding of GEICO's business strategy.

What I wish was different

The potential downsides of this internship are that the pay is less competitive than other corporations of this size and the internship is shorter (it lasted for a little under two months). I would have appreciated a higher hourly wage and the opportunity to spend more time doing the internship. Bear this in mind but do not let this hold you back from pursuing the internship!

Advice

GEICO is very encouraging about their open door policy and gives you the chance to build a professional network with some amazing individuals. Do not hold back in scheduling meetings and creating opportunities to talk with company personnel. They really value their interns!

What I liked

I was given very real business problems to solve. Also, assigned us mentors, which was great. The presentations were my favorite part.

What I wish was different

The intern coordinators Cody and Taylor did a great job.

Advice

Be focused. It is easy to get distracted working with a large group of interns.

Business leadership summer internship

June - August 2019 • Renton, WA

What I liked

It was a great experience that helped me make new business connections. The job was fun and not stressful, and I received an offer that I accepted

What I wish was different

Nothing, the people were great and it was a great experience

Advice

I would say that the biggest thing to do now a days is learn how to communicate with people. Everyone is now becoming more introverted with the new advancements to technology so people skills are a top priority for most jobs.

Management Development Program Intern

June - August 2019 • Katy, TX

What I liked

The environment was great, and we were able to work on a variety of projects, while at the same time meeting a lot of new people. We were all able to shadow managers in our time there and got extremely valuable experience. There was not one thing I did not like.

What I wish was different

I wouldn't have changed anything, you will not regret the experience!

Advice

Take away as much as possible. GEICO provided so many people to learn from, and everything I learned was valuable and something I will use in the future. You must act like a sponge and absorb everything possible.
