    Current Employee - Loan Servicing Spec  in  Fort Worth, TX
    Current Employee - Loan Servicing Spec in Fort Worth, TX

    Pros

    It's a job is the only pro. It is by far one of the worse companies I have worked for. The supervisors and management are either too laid back and indifferent or strict and over your shoulder all the time. They micromanage everything with their time and processed items programs they have. It measures productivity which in hindsight is a bad idea for the people with several job functions throughout their shift. You will get laid off if you dont meet their standards of productivity no matter how hard you work and how much you lend yourself to other departments

    Cons

    High turn over
    lack of management or managerial training
    Non department specific training classes
    Pick and choose what skills you learn for your department, you won't know everything if you needed to fill in for a member of your team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit your day job, lack of job skills on your part makes very unhappy employees

    Current Employee - Applications Developer Associate  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - Applications Developer Associate in New York, NY

    Pros

    Talented coworkers, a lot to learn, decent mobility within the organization, and it's generally a well-run place considering the huge volume of everything they do (though I would say less so during recent lean years).

    Cons

    Very hierarchical and political. Negotiate hard before you start because you won't get a raise, and bonuses can be laughable. Generally fairly stable work if not the best-paying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible - know the value of your employees and understand the amount of investment that goes into learning how these incredibly complicated systems work. If you find a talented, knowledgeable employee KEEP HIM/HER.

    Pros

    Lots of interaction with senior management. Great hourly rate for summer intern and 1500 dollar starting bonus

    Cons

    Its a hit or miss based on who your direct manager end up being. Sometimes you can have a great relationship with your direct manager and that'll in turn create an amazing experience. The other way around you will hate your job.

    Current Employee - Card Member Services in San Antonio, TX

    Pros

    Culture is great. Everyone is willing to help the customer.

    Cons

    Constant changes. Leadership need to find a better way to roll changes out. Once a week meetings which were cancelled most of the time is not a effective way to discuss changes. Even a simple 5-10 minute meeting before shift would work better.

    Former Employee - Analyst in New York, NY

    Pros

    There are a lot of institutional resources that help employees learn skills on the job. Having a global platform also gives opportunities to move around.

    Cons

    Work life balance is of no concern to managers
    Getting things done or having systems changed is hard with so much red tape

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're facing a talent exodus in your investment banking division. You need to implement work life balance improvements or young professionals will continue to prefer buy-side or tech-sector jobs.
