Play ball! Get ready for baseball’s best

By on October 2, 2014 at 4:34 PM

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and not because the kids are back in school, although that’s nice, too. Rather, I refer to the wondrousness that is playoff baseball. I’ve been an Orioles fan almost all my life, and we’re giddy to have our team back in the post-season. It has been WAY […]

For me, it’s a time to recall the early history of this company, and the people who built the company where I’ve been […]

Memory of the Month: Dance like there’s nobody watching

By on August 26, 2014 at 8:40 AM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett, whose company owns GEICO, has said he enjoys his job so much that he tap-dances to work every day. That’s a feeling apparently shared by this group of GEICO employees. Judging from the […]

Memory of the Month: GEICO, a groundbreaking company

By on July 24, 2014 at 11:48 AM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. On this very day, 57 years ago, GEICO’s founder, Leo Goodwin, sank a shovel into the earth to begin (symbolically, at least) construction of the building that would become GEICO’s new headquarters. With his business steadily growing since […]

Memory of the Month: Miles of files

By on June 20, 2014 at 2:00 PM

During my career, now in its fourth decade, I’ve seen a lot of things change here at GEICO. But there have also been some constants; for example, we’ve always been a data-intensive company. When I started here in 1984, our IT operations were more or less in their infancy. We were converting paper policy records […]

Memory of the Month: ‘Workin’ at the car wash, yeah!’

By on May 28, 2014 at 4:06 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. One of the things my colleagues and I enjoy about working at GEICO is the company’s commitment to good corporate citizenship. GEICO employees support a wide variety of charitable causes – national organizations, like United Way, but also […]

By on May 27, 2014 at 3:31 PM

Next time you’re watching a NASCAR race, keep an eye out for the 13 car – mostly white, with green, blue and military camouflage accents. Behind the wheel of that speeding beauty, you’ll find Casey Mears. And behind Mears and his racing team, you’ll find GEICO and a great commitment to serving members of the […]

Memory of the Month: the most important meal of the day

By on April 25, 2014 at 2:18 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. I’ll have one – or two, even! Griddles sizzling, crepes cooking … why wasn’t I invited? Well, it might have been because I wasn’t working at GEICO yet. I’m not exactly sure when this photo was shot, but […]

Memory of the Month: Racks of records

By on March 25, 2014 at 9:14 AM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. This mid-1970s photo shows how GEICO stored policy records and other company information as it moved into the computer age. These IBM 3420 tape drives held about 120 megabytes of data. But converting from paper files to this […]

Memory of the Month: Print and mail

By on February 27, 2014 at 12:10 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. When Leo Goodwin launched GEICO in 1936, his fledgling company was built on a foundation of direct mail. The operation required lots of printing, so to keep costs as low as possible, GEICO had its own printing facilities […]
