    Pros

    Senior management fosters a culture that is pervasive and positive. The company seems to truly care about the employees and employ several methods to ensure employee development and opportunity.

    Cons

    Competitive business decisions within the credit culture have somewhat of a hangover effect from the economic downturn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to normal risk levels

    Pros

    High turnover industry makes it easy to get hired on. Most new employees don't stay very long, so it does not take very long to build up seniority if you plan on staying with the corporation.

    Cons

    Very micromanaged. Branch employees must make daily commitments of sales. If commitments are not aggressive enough, employees are questioned. If aggressive goals are made and not met, the employee is chastised. Contrary to what one other poster listed, only 10 days vacation are given until the year following the 3 year anniversary, then more vacation is earned. Most of the time, employees must send hourly "sales updates" which take about 10 minutes to prepare, recapping the activity from the past hour. On the corporate level, sales numbers for employees are updated about 3 times per month, generally the goal is every Thursday, but any kind of conflict such as month end or quarter end may delay the weekly update by up to a week or two, making it a very ineffective tool to use in a micromanaging environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work life balance is declining, with the no overtime push and inadequate staff to handle all activities causes employees to be required to take multiple short unpaid lunch breaks daily at a moment's notice. Also, branch employees must work 6 day workweeks with only 1 Saturday per month. Saturdays off during vacation requests are at manager's discretion only and you may be "required" to work a Saturday between days off you have or find a replacement.
