Pros

a paycheck. you work independently

Cons

The company robs the students. I cannot sit there and honestly sell. I have a concious and these kids are starting out with 20,000 in student loans and when they graduate their student loan bill is 40,000 in interest. this is just an example the interest is robbery.

Advice to Management

stop spending so much time going outside for a cidgerette when 5 employees walked,out in 4 days. the mgmt stick together among them selves . It is a call center!!! you can't trust anyone and they will stab you in the back if you turned to fast. I am sure i am leaving next i am just miserable there. TOO MANY CHANGES TOO FAST

    Pros

    Great mission, providing access to education for students. Great building with full gym with basketball and tennis courts. Great work-life balance. The colleagues are genuinely friendly and helpful and almost everyone wants to get things done. Right now, with the stock price so low, any stock bonus will appreciate significantly.

    Cons

    There was a big cultural and pay difference between senior management and the rank and file. The internal IT organization was too set in their 'old' ways and unable to adapt quickly to changing marketplace demands. Additionally, the organization became too big and has lost focus for some of their core competencies.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees. Don't forget from where you came and where you are going. Respect everyone.


  2. Work life balance is good, but pay is not good.

    Pros

    There are some very bright people here to learn from and grow. The work like balance is strong with recognition that time with family is an important aspect of job satisfaction.

    Cons

    The salary is not very competitive. The company is going through some difficult times so some departments have little job security. The future profitability of the federal guarantee loan business is also in question so that makes the long term attractiveness of working at the company questionable.

    Advice to Management

    To compensate their employees at a much closer rate to their market value. And to communicate with them about their performance and expectations.
