    I learned a lot in customer service and it was a joy to be able to help others out finanacially

    Assist Manager (Former Employee)
    Temecula, CA

    ProsThis company has a lot of perks like bonuses and they are very family oriented. This company has good values and being number 1 in customer service is one of them. There are a great ways to advancein this company too

    ConsThere is a quota of loans to make and a certain amount of profit to be made on each loan and you had to take vacations during certain months

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management was good because most of them started at the bottom and worked their way up so they truly understood what we were going through

    Poor middle to upper management

    Financial Representative/Management Trainee (Former Employee)

    Pros401k match, vacation and sick time, insurance good

    ConsWorked 2-3 Saturdays per month, worked late evenings either once or twice per week. Cannot take anytime off during last week of the month. Branch managers have no desire to help management trainees advance. DM doesn't make sure branch managers are held accountable for training new staff. High turnover rate. Bonus program is a joke if your not a branch manager

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on retaining qualify employees and making sure management trainees receive the training and advancement opportunities that were promised. Bonus program is a joke for employees, while branch manager is fair. Remember that is takes a team to make a branch successful, not just one person.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fast-paced and fun

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI enjoy working with smart people in a collaborative environment. Senior management seems focused on the right initiatives to keep Springleaf relevant in a rapidly-changing world.

    ConsBeing an older established company, there is sometimes a lot of bureaucracy that has built up over time that doesn't seem necessary anymore. It is often difficult to change these things that longer-term employees are used to performing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep moving forward in the right direction.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
