Bad

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsVery friendly environment. Officers usually offer perks if deadllines and expectations are met. There was plenty of over time opportunities.

ConsLack of a future for better or for worse. Since the industry of selling student loans is gone, the company has remained stagnant.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are no advice for management. They did their best. It was the economy which messed up everthing. They will just have to wait it out.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
