    I worked at Sallie Mae

    Pros

    - benefits

    - opportunities. Once you are there for nine months you can post in other positions and people were taking new positions all the time.

    - I said good for college grads because you start off with a low salary and entry level position but if you have the time (3-5 years) I could see someone becoming highly successful

    - If you like OT, then offer a lot of it

    Cons

    - Inconsistent information. I was told the hourly wages during the interview and come offer time it was less then discussed and not negotiable.
    - The department I was in had no direction and was in constant flux
    - No feedback or direction from Team Leaders
    - Did not like the incentive plan. No matter how hard you worked the statistics were never accurate and a lot of your figures came from accounts colleagues resolved
    - In order to be a top performer and get better incentive you would need to work a lot of OT
    - There were different policy from team to team in the department, no consistency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a more uniform system when it comes running a department. Come up with a an incentive plan that pays you for the work you do and does reward people who know how to work "the system"

    I have been working at Sallie Mae

    Pros

    Opportunity to get great bonus checks, no standing or walking around, benefits are offered, paid holidays ( restrictions apply to this). Monthly contests to win prizes

    Cons

    Basically have to overwork yourself if you want to hit goal, if you don't do a satisfactory job in relation to goal, you will be terminated after a certain period of time (3 consecutive months). No life work balanace

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it possible so that employees dont feel over worked and drained from this job
