I turned down a job at USAA because they were trying to lowball me. Also, I wasn't impressed with the lack of knowledge and experience of the interviewing managers and their department seemed like it was in complete chaos. From what I've recently been hearing from the news and from people who did jump to USAA, it's a real sh*tshow in the investigations world. Poorly managed, attrition through the roof, etc. Clearly the grass is not always greener on the other side.

Something to say about the quality of the 'We serve veterans' mentality... they sure do FIRE a lot of veterans they hire. I was working in IT and suffering with PTSD and getting treatment at the VA. VA's way of treating is trying every pill under the sun to dr-g you enough that you don't notice your PTSD symptoms. This obviously doesn't mix well when you're working in IT. Instead of understanding what I was going through and having the least bit of compassion, I was let go. I warn everyone that even talks about wanting to work at USAA. It was cool 10 years ago... it's all gone to $%*^ now.
They switched to astroturf because they can't get the grass any greener the natural way. Investigations is a dog and pony side show, sh-t sandwich. Dont be a su---r

Good decision. They have a lot of Directors that were promoted who only have USAA experience and they lack the right skills to be at that level as compared to the industry. I am for promoting from within most of the time but they have a lot of goofiness going on and are not serious about delivery.
