    I worked at CompuCredit full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great compensation, smart co-workers, very little hassle and no bureaucracy. The company expects you to be available, but the general hours kept are very family friendly.

    Cons

    The one con that I think is apparent to many who work in the sub-prime markets is that there is a lot of regulatory oversight and that means that there is added stress to any normal workday. The regulatory environment introduced a lot of uncertainty.

    Pros

    Full authority to work and manage the way you think best, looking for results, so long as you don't break the law, do anything immoral or unethical.

    Cons

    Compucredit just outsourced most of its credit card work off shore, so the company is downsizing. It's sad, because the work the in-house call centers did was outstanding, especially dealing with their subprime portfolio.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the deal....let people plan their future....

    Pros

    open door policy with all management, friendly and young staff, fast-paced environment, flexible hours and work-life balance, competitive salary

    Cons

    management used to have quarterly meetings about status of the company until a couple years ago when major layoffs began and the meetings stopped as well as all communication within the company, letting employees go without sufficient knowledge transfer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take note of employees who are becoming less available and praise employees who are always available

    I worked at CompuCredit

    Pros

    CompuCredit employees some of the brightest individuals in the finance industry, it is great being able to work with such a bright group of individuals.

    Cons

    It occasionally felt as if senior managment was pre occupied with the potential of new projects before allowing current projects to be fully cemented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think employees could benefit from a more open outlet of communication about current stake and company affairs so they aren't guessing what is coming next.

    Pros

    Smaller Environment
    Ability to make a difference and so multiple things

    Cons

    Really the only con was that the economy tanked and the business model collapsed. Eventually it may come back, but they are working on other products.
