    Pros

    Closed most holidays, bonus system is great, and company is always looking for ways to improve.

    Cons

    Depending on where you work (service area), goals can seem unattainable and unrealistic. If you don't have the "can do" attitude upper management will make a point to get rid of you. No room for growth, once you are a Branch Manager that is where you will stay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to spend money on branches to make money. A lot of the rural branches could use a make over to help bring in more customers.

    Constantly changing goals
    No appreciation for accomplishments
    Very clunky
    Women are limited Its a boys club
    Upper management is out of touch with day to day operations

    Pros

    Nice coworkers, decent pay, decent benefits

    Cons

    There is no way this company will be around in 10 years. Fortress is polishing the company to be it's best just so they can sell it off and make a profit. Large layoffs every few years. Don't plan on sticking around forever. You can only move out of your current position if you know the right people or if you get laid off. Skills don't really matter here. Managers are disconnected from their employees.

    I worked at Springleaf Finance as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay for internship and company hires from within

    Cons

    You can end up doing a lot of filing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interns in business college should be used to grow business to business relationships since we learn a lot about it in school and typically dress to impress. This way the intern will also learn a lot about the business since they will have to well versed on it to market it.
