    Pros

    Nelnet is a young-minded company full of some of the brightest minds I've worked with. It had a supportive yet autonomous environment, and committed the resources necessary to meet our objectives.

    Cons

    I would include conservative management as an occasional drawback, but that conservative approach has kept them strong through trying times. I do think during my stretch there, they grew too quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to percolate ideas and innovation up through the ranks of managers and directors - there is a lot of talent in your field operations.

    Pros

    Great PTO... i absolutely loved having 4 weeks off to start off with.. they also provided good stock option for my role

    Cons

    They don't care about the employee and upper management knows how to take advantage of employees and does it very well.

    During my tenure the layoffs were planned and for me personally they lied and moved up all my deadlines. Never worked for such dishonest company and people.

    Note: I worked for Peterson's division.. the CUnet folks were great which is the group i was initially hired for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STart caring about your employees.
