    Positive Outlook
    Positive Outlook


    Most managers cared about the people they led and supported the culture that senior executives wanted to create. This created an environment where co-workers were engaged and cared about their work and the people they worked with.


    As with any organization, there were some managers and employees that did not enjoy their jobs, which could make work challenging at times, but the numbers were limited.

    Advice to Management

    Continue fostering a positive work environment and work life balance while helping managers and employees that are not engaged to find opportunities they would be happier with and provide greater value.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Nelnet (Lincoln, NE).


    Two interviews - the first with the hiring manager and HR and the second with peer managers in the department. Both were very routine interviews, but all parties involved were very welcoming. They were honest and upfront with questions I had about the role and work environment.
