    Pros

    Change and improvement in process happen incredibly fast.
    Most of the management are great to work with.

    Cons

    Limited chances for advancement.
    Very closed and segregated top management.
    Speed comes at the cost of accuracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open more channels of communication with your staff, from collectors to middle management. Have your actions reflect your values and not be empty platitudes.

    Work life balance appropriate....good people in company.

    Office culture is relaxed, going public was a mistake, company has appeared to lose its focus.

    I worked at Santander Consumer USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is nothing positive working here except to find out what a mismanaged company is.

    Cons

    Leadership is from internal promotions from an Asm to rsm which are not deserved. Majority is women who are ill equipped and brain washed to manage by intimidation and no industry knowledge. As an Asm you are treated like a child judged on how many calls and emails you logged that day. You are subject to canned conference calls about what not to discuss or how to act at a national sales meeting, "no puke breathe, you will show up early and not leave until the event is done". More or less don't embarrass your rsm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue if you don't think sales adds value get rid of them

    Leadership at this company is a joke. They do not get it and they never will. Company execs too out of touch

    Pros

    I cannot think of one

    Cons

    no vision, could care less about employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend time in your operation. A/C doesn't work, bathrooms don't work, yet employees are required to work in these conditions.
