    Pros

    Loyal to their employees....but to a fault Good benefits. A movement towards differentiating from the check Young and hungry employees coming on board

    Cons

    sales force is way too old. Too much leeway is given to AE's who have put in a lot of time. New solutions are too mail centric. Direct Mail is going the way of the check and too much is invested there. Investing in the wrong business, ClickSwitch>LoanEngine You need to et rid of the check managers. Too much arrogance, they live in the past

    Advice to Management

    Start a creativity program. Encourage employees to come up with their own solutions rather than going out and acquiring a flavor of the week. Stop focusing on direct mail "data driven" solutions. You need a younger management team that involves millenials....especially as your boomer aged salesforce has become irrelevant or they do not fully comprehend solutions. Enough with the arrogance of the check, it's 2015 not 1988.

    Pros

    Leadership is fantastic, and always communicative. Company is very customer-focused, and that makes for a very effective team, regardless of your role.

    Cons

    It's a big company, and it's easy to get a bit lost there. Like most large companies, there are plenty of silos, and lots of tradition. Lots of "because we've always done it this way".

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking at improving by listening to employees.
