    Pros

    Tremendous career advancement and great benefits. I started as an analyst and was able to progress to Officer level based on the merits of my work.

    Cons

    Tough industry, high-stress at times . Lots of talent has left. Unfamiliar with the culture since being bought by GM.

    I worked at AmeriCredit full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    An okay place to get underwriting experience. A few of the credit managers are good to work for. Good location.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to competitors, micromanaged, poor communication, high turnover rate, always a "but" after any type of praise, takes forever to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your employees do the job they were hired to do without being micromanaged, and give praise when it's due. Quit focusing on phone time and focus more on the talent that you have and the good job they're doing. It's about the quality of the phone calls not the quantity. Quit being overly corporate.

    Pros

    Good work space and area.

    Cons

    All employees are walking on egg shells no one will look you in the eye.
    Roles are set but not to industry standards which means if you are a project manager you only do a 1/3 of the actually work of Project Manager.
    Because of the fact Texas is the Right to work state if some managers find out that you are gay you might find yourself out the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn what Project Managers, Netwok Engineers, Business Analyst, etc actually d and allow them to do their jos.
    Stop Management from micro managerng employees let them do their job.
    Train managment to understand that religous out looks have no business in businss.

    Pros

    If you naturally enjoy underwriting then you will be okay.Fun relationships with dealers

    Cons

    No room for growth, diminishing bonuses, promotions are for "friends" of management only and not for performance. Constantly changing goals. disparages in treatment of others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    senior management needs to keep a tight watch or how the satellite branches are run. Seems they are pretty much doing what they want.

    Because I was a supplemental I got to make my own schedule

    Cons

    LIke any other call center you're expected to be on the phone at all times and there is absolutely no room for advancement with your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better incentives to get employees to stay. Make the enviroment more enjoyable to work at.

    I worked at AmeriCredit

    Pros

    Good benefits. Pay was pretty good. Great people. Lots of feedback on your performance beginning on your first day on the floor to the 90th day so you see your progression. Supervisor monitored calls each month, shows exactly what call was listened to and usually get the results the same day. Overall and pretty good place to work.

    Cons

    Changed systems out of the blue. Change of higher management = BIG unnecessary changes. Unwilling to work with schedule change requests.
