    Pros

    Good vacation time. Co workers in branch were great. Nothing else at all.

    Cons

    MICROmanaging to the max. No pay raises, only "incentive" programs that increase every quarter. Numbers are held over your head. Advancement opportunities are very limited. After BM there is really no where to move up. Every day you get emails that are negative, not positive reinforcement. Horrible top down management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees in the branch. Not managers, they are trying to cover their own butts 95% of the time. Put an effective training program in place and pay you're frontline better.

    Pros

    Co workers are fun to work with/good vacation time/ able to leave early if need be if your manager is cool with you.

    Cons

    Where do I start???? When you look up micro-managing in the dictionary, springleaf will be listed! Schedule is constantly changing, they want you to work every Saturday. Pay is horrible. Claim that the only way to get a raise is through the bonus incentive program but the goals are unrealistic. BM and up are clueless. BM's will throw you under the bus to save themselves. DM's are outdated. They're so negative. We receive a negative email almost everyday. THEY DO NOT VALUE THEIR EMPLOYEE'S. ALWAYS MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR JOB IS ON THE LINE. SPRINGLEAF HAS THE LEAD BY FEAR MENTALITY. I am trying my best to leave this company, ASAP.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your front line employee's! Ask us how policies work as we are the ones trying them out. Stop with the changing of the schedules, working late night on random days are not beneficial. Understand work/life balance... we do not eat/breathe/sleep Springleaf!

    Pros

    Generous vacation time...They really try to make it a "great place to work" by lots of giveaways and discounted tickets to local events, etc., nice facilities, are well entrenched in the local community. There is a commitment to enabling "team members" to follow their desired career path. I think that's really commendable.

    Cons

    Maybe TOO focused on making everything fun, cheer-leading gets a little old, sometimes I just want to work. Management team is not really monitored as to their effectiveness. Seems like some managers just attend meetings and talk the game upwardly (to their superiors), but then they are very unresponsive in the other direction when issues or concerns are presented.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage your email inbox better and be more responsive to those who do the work for you!!

    Pros

    Huge opportunity for advancement and great leadership at all levels. Good benefits, flexibility and profit sharing, good salary ranges and employee engagement.

    Cons

    Very fast paced, hard to keep up. Outdated technology but improving constantly. Suggest management look to upgrade current system with something already created.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strive to improve technology. With right systems, we are unstoppable! Continue the employee survey and goals of making Springleaf a "Great Place to work!" We are getting there! Continue to offer profit sharing, great benefit!

    Gossiping and putting down employees is not how you run a business. That's how you run a high school.

    Pros

    Good benefits, learn about loan process, good starter job

    Cons

    Didn't like having to solicit clients to increase loans and continue their debt cycle. The company doesn't help its customers but traps them in debt for as long as they possibly can.
