I have been working at Bread Financial full-time for more than a year
I've been in a professional working environment for 10 years and this is the first employer who really "sees me." The company helps me achieve what's important to me, counts on me to provide my... expertise, both listens and makes me feel heard, includes me in company strategy, and cares enough to recognize successes (big and small) along the way. This sound a little weird... but I'm often shocked at how kind and approachable my colleagues are here, across all teams. Time and distance don't seem to matter -- everyone here is ready to hop on an MS Teams call to talk, explain, or show you how to do something. I'm very grateful to find a place where I feel I can be the professional I've been preparing to be for 10 years. I have arrived!!
My only con to share would be that there are some opportunities in the delivery of IT Hardware and equipment. I needed some extra support in setting everything up and the Help Desk came through... a... little extra directions could have been helpful. The Help Desk team has been great about getting me everything I need -- from a conference call "puck", a fancy webcam, dual monitors, etc.
Advice to Management
Since Ralph joined the company, we've seen so many improvements -- the addition of new paid holidays, flexible time off, increasing our gas / home internet stipend. The real improvements are the... intangibles -- he spends time each month answering live questions from associates and gives honest, authentic answers which is incredibly valuable to me, as someone who doesn't interact with the CEO directly.
