I worked at Ally Financial full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

401k; I was able to save more in 5 years with Ally than I did in almost 8 years with my previous employer. This was due to a generous company match and year end discretionary contributions for 3 years running.

Cons

Lack of leadership at mid and upper-mid levels; Directors and 'Executives' (@ VP level) are weak in terms of leadership skills; many lacking in vision-setting and overall charisma.

Chaotic work environment; exceptionally high turnover rate; +35% within my functional area over the prior 2 year period coupled with layoffs in early February that caught many off guard. Not a place where you look forward to going to work every day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

LEAD comes across as just another management catch phrase du dour. Senior leaders need to be more visible to the rank and file in locations outside of Manhattan.

  2. Small town thinking, must be in the 'in crowd"

    I worked at Ally Financial full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance, pay is good

    Cons

    Similar to high school - need to be apart of the in crowd to succeed. A growing company with small town thinking.
