    I worked at Chrysler Financial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great training and enough time to understand it.

    Cons

    At the time the hours were crazy 11 hour days. No work life benefit whatsoever. Some managers micromanaged and others were very lax. The company was going through an identity crisis and was looking for a buyer which ultimatley happened while I was employed. Rigid and strict.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees time and know they have a life outside of working 11 hour days. Treat employees better and do not be so open in your favortism - yes it's going to happen but at least keep it under wraps. Wonderful training program. Continue to keep that going. Also you had many talented individuals with some impressive resumes at this time but treated them poorly. If I was management I would have taken advantage of that talent because you were getting a deal on experience in the great recession.

    I worked at Chrysler Financial full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There were no Pros to this job aside from the great coworkers. The managers had no idea how to talk to their staff and it made the job even more difficult.

    Cons

    Alternating schedules every month, had to work every other Saturday, mandatory overtime...no way to have a life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your employees personal lives into consideration because if you don't, you won't have happy employees who want to do good work.

    I worked at Chrysler Financial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company Car program (gone), Tuition Reimbursement (gone), Pay was ok. There were some pretty great people who worked there, the company culture wasn't too bad.

    Cons

    Pay, it was just ok and when all of the perks (car, tuition) went away, it wasn't worth it. It was a typical call center environment. The hours were crazy.

    Former Employee - Dealer Credit Analyst in Auburn Hills, MI

    I worked at Chrysler Financial full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Advanced positions quickly (18 months)
    Developed financial and strategic abilities
    Strong network of employees
    Continuing education reimbursement

    Chrysler Financial was a great place to begin my career, moving quickly from Customer Service call center environment to retail credit and commercial credit lines. I held two supervisory roles and had several ad-hoc projects to bolster my resume.

    Cons

    Limited to a niche industry - Automotive finance
    Predetermined career path
    Industry was heavily affected by 2008 credit crunch

    The work was very specific to the automotive industry, although applications exist in other industries. Having now moved out of the automotive and credit environments, I realized the experience was somewhat limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As with any company, clear and direct communication to employees is critical.
