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

    Pros

    Office culture was wonderful, nothing to corporate but still structured enough. Great work life balance and they gave people the freedom to know when they needed to get stuff done rather than always micromanaging.

    Cons

    There was a lack of focus on management when I was there. It seemed like the goals shifted on a weekly basis. It could have been more of Sallie Mae than Upromise directly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on a few things and do them well rather than changing all the time

Upromise doesn't promise to pay for your kid's education -- but it might help. By joining Upromise, customers receive rebates on purchases from thousands of retailers, restaurants, grocery stores, and companies -- ranging from Exxon Mobil (1 cent per gallon) to Bed Bath & Beyond (1% on purchases) -- that are credited to a college savings account. Upromise manages about $19 billion in 529 college savings plans (tax-advantaged investment programs for future higher education expenses). Upromise is owned by education financier SLM Corporation (known as Sallie Mae).
