    Pros

    It's a nice company to work for, if you're wanting to learn more in order to advance you can.

    Cons

    Micromanaging, you won't become a manager, you can try to become a lead but that's it. There's really no advancing in this company. Pay could be way much better

    Pros

    - Opportunity to learn about the subprime market of automobile lending - Decent training and help available in learning most job functions - A few nice supportive people

    Cons

    - If you have any type of college degree, you're too smart to work here. Most of the people are lower-middle class high school graduates and it's pretty obvious from their work ethic and lack of manners/morals. - Technology is backward. They still use paper files!! Processes are slow and inefficient and most people, management included, don't know what they're doing. - Communication is poor. When problems occur, people just try to find scapegoats. - This company had a million dollar lawsuit filed against them because they weren't reporting customers' payments to the credit bureaus, which was resulting in these customers credit scores not being updated correctly.

    Advice to Management

    This will probably fall on deaf ears, but try to at least get your Bachelors degree or take some management training. It's depressing to work for uneducated low class people who are complete imbeciles.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Casual dress code. Good group of employees.

    The company plays "favorites" with employees. Low salaries when the company make changes.

    Advice to Management

    Arrogance will stop any change from constructive criticism, so no advice at all.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, decent overtime during peak seasons.

    Cons

    This job doesn't require any education. I recommend someone that's just getting out of school with no experience to get the decent pay for a recent college graduate. No growth, lack of training, lack of resources, poor communications, 401K is horrible, no long term growth, no employee stock options, work almost every Saturday andvsimetime Sunday's. No educational or health promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management: proper management training, professionalism needed, communication, business ettifquette, email ettifquette, etc.

    Pros

    The employees you work with are nice. A job with this company is okay if you simply need a job while you look for something else.

    Cons

    Low pay, micromanagement. Little room for advancement unless you are someone's favorite.

    Pros

    Benefits are plentiful and recently the company has integrated a learing tool called FIFS (First Investors Financial Services) University for its employees to continue in their learning abilities to progress in their current role. The purpose of FIFS develops a learning organization that acquires the knowledge and core competencies that will sustain competitive edge and optimal performance.

    Cons

    Not enough team building to keep team members motivated and activated. Opportunites for advancement are politically inclined and limited.

    Pros

    Good job if your just looking for something to pay the bills while you look for a better job

    Cons

    Lied to about the job description. Basically a Call Center with paperwork on top of that. The management is terrible and don't have a good method to train new employees. Very hard to advance. The mangement prefers to keep people where they are. Pay is highly undervalued.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice and care of new employees. Actually try to make it possible to advance career not make it a one track mind.
