    Pros

    CompuCredit offers a lot of flexibility as far as working full time or part time. There are also different shifts that you can work which allows a lot of people to work and a lot of new jobs offered in the area.

    Cons

    Working on subprime credit cards and collecting was terrible. The people you are collecting from have the worst credit possible and it's hard to get them to pay. You are compensated on how many people you can get to pay thier past due credit card.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more advancement opportunities and training for employees. Stop sending all the jobs overseas, no one wants to hear from somone from overseas.

    Pros

    Full authority to work and manage the way you think best, looking for results, so long as you don't break the law, do anything immoral or unethical.

    Cons

    Compucredit just outsourced most of its credit card work off shore, so the company is downsizing. It's sad, because the work the in-house call centers did was outstanding, especially dealing with their subprime portfolio.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the deal....let people plan their future....

    Pros

    The people are the best. Everyone works very well together.

    Cons

    Communication is not very good between management and employees. The business units don't communicate with each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your employees more informed on what is going on. Each of the department heads need to talk with each other.

    I worked at CompuCredit

    Pros

    open door policy with all management, friendly and young staff, fast-paced environment, flexible hours and work-life balance, competitive salary

    Cons

    management used to have quarterly meetings about status of the company until a couple years ago when major layoffs began and the meetings stopped as well as all communication within the company, letting employees go without sufficient knowledge transfer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take note of employees who are becoming less available and praise employees who are always available

    The company has many issues with nepotism and desire to promote individuals that are not necessarily qualified.

    Pros

    Most of the employees that work there are intelligent and just need the proper management to nurture that drive and discipline.

    Cons

    A lot of the knowledge was housed within the senior management staff and not transferred to those that needed the knowledge to do the work properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should work on training the senior management staff. Just because you have worked there for several years and survived through the lay-offs does not automatically qualify you for the management role.

    Pros

    The company in general is entrepreneurial. They are willing to pursue new ideas and new industries. Management is heavily vested in the company and willing to be aggressive in making major decisions. Also, job roles aren't always restrictive, so one can provide input outside of their specific area. Depending on the area, the company is mostly not bureaucratic and very much merit-based in how people are treated. Also, their compensation rates have historically been on the higher side for the industry. Further, CompuCredit is genuinely trying to offer a better value proposition for its customers, so it's good to know that the company, despite stories to the contrary, is trying to do things the right way.

    Cons

    The prospects for consumer lending for the subprime population is very poor. Given the challanges facing this entire industry and the limitations on funding sources, this company is simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Much will be decided in the next year regarding the continued viability of the company. Also, the benefits package is limited, though compensation is normally solid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay aggressive. Look at process improvement more in trying to cut costs.

    Pros

    CompuCredit employees some of the brightest individuals in the finance industry, it is great being able to work with such a bright group of individuals.

    Cons

    It occasionally felt as if senior managment was pre occupied with the potential of new projects before allowing current projects to be fully cemented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think employees could benefit from a more open outlet of communication about current stake and company affairs so they aren't guessing what is coming next.
