Founders of the Consumer Credit Research Institute

We’re looking out for consumers everywhere. That’s why we founded the Consumer Credit Research Institute (CCRI). Taking a scientific approach to understanding the ways consumers get into financial trouble, the CCRI aims to identify better ways to break chronic debt cycles that can lead to ongoing financial distress. The institute represents an industry-leading effort to differentiate and describe an important—and often neglected—consumer segment. By partnering with leading universities, non-profit organizations, and governmental agencies, Encore Capital Group and the CCRI continue to advance thinking in areas from public policy to financial education.

    I worked at Encore Capital Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very open and transformative environment. You will learn a great deal as they are trying to both grow into new things and improve their existing lines of business. Visionary IT leadership always looking for ways to improve and make things better.

    Cons

    Very fast-paced and results-oriented. You must be able to learn new ways, skills and tools and get proficient at delivering with them very quickly while operating with others who aren't always inclined (or incented) to do the same.

    Also, they are a debt collection company and that might make some uncomfortable but most retail companies are in the debt generation business, so take your pick.

    Advice to Management

    Have organized and supported programs and performance goals to allow employees to work in different roles and listen in on calls....understanding internal and external customers will make everyone more effective.
