    I worked at Ally Financial (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people and culture in Minneapolis location. Work hard, play hard team that was knowledgeable and stepped up when necessary.

    Cons

    When the HQ moved to Charlotte, things changed quite a bit in Minneapolis and let go of a lot of good people as part of workforce reduction.

    I have been working at Ally Financial full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working for Ally, I was able to see a clear career path. I enjoyed the people I worked for and with and will keep in contact with them on a regular basis.

    Cons

    I would rather not list cons, as this is more of a company proprietary topic. Every organization has areas of opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    This is also proprietary, as if anything needed to be shared, I have done so already.

    Can move up the career ladder a bit, can make opportunities and some of the work is interesting with the client

    Hold people accountable particularly in mid/upper management, there should be processes and flexibility
