    Pros

    Your co-workers who often times become your 2nd family.

    Cons

    - They adjust your title to avoid being in line with industry salary standards. The pay is not commensurate to any professional career in financing. Chase, Citibank and Wells Fargo (their competition) far exceed them in salary.
    - If you are not currently in management or connected to management, you will not advance far or at all.
    - Referrals are not accepted in higher grade jobs, again, unless you're a manager or an Analyst. They can get their untrained, fresh college grad in a "higher ranking" position over a seasoned employee easily.
    - HR is in cahoots with management. Managers are not reprimanded for their harassing and discriminatory practices ever! The ONLY time someone is let go is when there is pending litigation. So you have to retain an attorney before a formal investigation will be launched.
    - If you're a person of color, you are definitely hard pressed to advance. You are targeted in very subliminal ways and your grievances to HR do nothing, but end back on your Manager's desk with no resolution. You will now be the target of their retaliatory scope.
    - In 2013, The Department of Justice (CFPB) fined Ally 80 million for external discriminatory practices, imagine if they knew what went on internally. All of the unanswered complaints, the issues not addressed and the hostile environment wouldn't seem so airy as the recruiters above made the false profiles on here seem.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management is out of touch with daily operations and believe what is fed to them. Entry level management is who is pushing people away. Word to the wise, take the time to review the HR files, before it hits the news.
