I have been working at Sallie Mae

Pros

Medical benefits are ok, free on-site flu shot, nice cafe. Sallie Mae offers tuition reimbursement. Location is close to I-95, easy commute

Cons

Sallie Mae was a great place to work. 3 years ago top management was taken over by ex-MBNA employees. That was the beginning of the end. Sallie Mae is no longer a place that values hard working employees. Constant talk to cost cutting, but you will see cubicles installed and employees moved in, then 3 months later all the employees will be moved, a crew comes in and tears down the cubicles and installs them again in a different formation. This cycle repeats over and over again.

    cuts to a lot of the benefits over the last five years
    upper management has final say in everything and doesn't consider options from the little man.

    Pros

    Your managers are professional but are friends. You can go to them with anything. Up level managers have floor meeting where they keep you informed of changes and new policies within the company.
    The office is just like the show "Office" very fun working envornment. They don't drug test once hired unless you come to work drunk or smelling..

    Cons

    Pay sucks. Bonus structure is a joke. High turnover
