Expect possible layoffs and lots of office politics.

I worked at Sallie Mae

ProsDecent benefits and compensation. Some promotional opportunities if you are willing to give up a lot personal family time (probably not a big issue if you are single).

ConsVery political atmosphere. Really need a mentor (someone in your senior management chain who likes you and appreciates your work) to have the best opportunities for advancement. People who just work hard and try to do their job (but don't really play office politics) are often not rewarded.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake steps to eliminate the "boys club" atmosphere. Too many people are promoted based on who they know, or who they are friends with in senior management, instead of their contributions to the organization.
