Nelnet encourages individual employee growth and has not yet overcome problems of cross-company (lack of) communication.

Pros

Rewards employees for job well done. Allows for and encourages growth. Education opportunities. Great people. Strong leadership through change; no doubt the company will survive. Providing a useful service.

Cons

Upper management can be arbitrary in decision-making. When a business group decides on a new project, it doesn't consult across the company to see what efficiencies can be gained from already existing projects, or what knowledge can be gained from those who have implemented similar projects. Business lines do not follow procedures as laid out, which can lead to problems at a later time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage/enforce communication and the following of procedures.

    Positive attitudes, fast-paced, sometimes disjointed

    Pros

    Nelnet is a very fast-paced work environment where expectations are generally set very high and often met. Because of successes, the overall attitude is positive and there is definitely a can-do culture present. Benefits and time off are a plus.

    Cons

    The can-do attitude can sometimes cause associates to push others too hard without sufficient resources or information. While there is tremendous potential for personal and corporate growth within the organization, some flexibility and work/life balance will have to be sacrificed in order to advance past lower-level management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue integration strategies to get all associates in all locations working together toward common goals. Also, possibly start additional communications to allow all associates to know what is going on in different parts of the company and how it might personally relate to their jobs and workload in the future.

    I worked at Nelnet

    Pros

    benifits are good, my direct managers were great. The information from on top was never what the situation turned out to be once all is said and done. this makes it hard to trust you job will be there.

    Cons

    I was told that I would have a job for over a year and in the end, 1 month prior to the big day, I got the axe. All my performance reviews were outstanding.l

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do not tell an employee one thing, and then change your mind at the last min. Any employee would rather be given the worst case and then get good news instead of what you did to me, best case and your gone with no time to find other oppertunities.
