I worked at Sallie Mae full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I worked for Sallie Mae for almost four years back when headquarters were located in Reston. At the time, the company offered a very flexible work-life balance, with the option to work from home as needed and casual Fridays. Sallie Mae was a well managed, organized, and structured place to work despite the constant grappling that occurred with the federal government over the student loan business. The best part about going into work everyday were the people. Most people I worked with were incredibly genuine, down to earth, and efficient in their roles. It was never a very stressful environment even though the company went through some rollercoaster rides during my time there.

Cons

There is no real performance management that takes place at Sallie Mae and people are given promotions based on popularity. There seemed to be little innovation within the groups I worked for.

    Pros

    SLM provides one ofthe most flexible working environments, allowing folks to work from home very often. Casual fridays are great, and the new headquarters is gorgeous.

    Cons

    Compensation structure is very rigid, but is pegged to company performance. Upward mobility exists, but % changes in salaries are small. No position between Manager and Director, which makes it tough for those that normally would fall into a Sr. Management position at another company.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
  2. Do not work here ever!
