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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Good child care benefit. Lots of work to be done. Not enough time to do it. There is always something to do, just never enough time to do it. There are lots of technologies in use at SLM, and for the most part, there is a wide variety of skills to learn.

    Cons

    Horrible hours, and the company doesn't value their employees. Senior management is driving the company into the ground. Layoffs are happening left and right, and others are expected to fill in the slack. The company manages by reaction, and there is no communication between the business and IT areas. Even worse, the company treats their borrowers terribly, and does nothing to improve the overall customer experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Al Lord should be fired. He could care less about the employees.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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