    I worked at USAA full-time

    Pros

    Culture, benefits, people, opportunities, workspace amenities

    Cons

    The jobs involving the phones (MSRs as they are known) are some of the toughest in the company from an emotional stress/anxiety level. Back-to-back calls for 8+ hours a day, never knowing who is going to be on the other line, or what kind of mood they are in, and on top of that, having to meet "sales" metrics to keep your job...all adds up to be a very stressful job.

    I worked at USAA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great managers, colleagues/team leads, trainers, and an overall positive culture *depending on your position. The company is very mission driven. Multiple cafeterias and company events.

    Cons

    The company is very numbers driven. Sometimes I felt like another number due to the stress that came with the job position. I constantly spoke with insureds who yell and cuss at me all day. Constantly heard others crying in the bathroom due to the stress. Prior/current military insureds speak down on you due to their position in the military. No room to move up due to the large amount of customer service representatives and limited positions in other departments. The company seems to be tenureship driven, meaning they only promote you if you've been in the same position for over 10 years. If you are on the phones answering calls, you are treated like the bottom of the barrel when it comes to company priorities. Also finding out that some colleagues were being paid more than me with little to no experience while I was not able to negotiate pay during the hiring process was also a turn-off.
