    I have been working at Ally Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ally Financial has a very friendly environment, and the benefits are very good. Management encourages input, and helps you perform well in your role.

    Cons

    Not many cons with Ally Financial, except that sometimes we need to work over the weekend for deployments, and the week before deployment tends to be very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a good job with the one-on-ones and performance reviews, which are very useful to see where you stand, and how to better yourself in your role.

    I worked at Ally Financial full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stability. Same thing everyday if you like that sort of thing. Decent benefits. No real attendance policy.

    Cons

    Micromanage time with tracking system, promote from outside and new people with not nearly the same experience as tenured employees who are qualified and have good reviews. Sucking up gets you promoted. You have to be a yes man and over participate to make yourself marketable. Leadership is expected, but no time for classes on the clock and no real ways to exhibit it unless you get super inventive.

    Not the biggest fan of the location in Detroit.

    I have been working at Ally Financial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits/Discounts at other businesses/Work-Life balance

    Cons

    Miscommunication between departments/disconnect between upper management and those in the field/uncompetitive salary, no cost of living raises in the last 6 years

    Advice to Management

    There are employees in your automotive section sales/buyers that have become disillusioned with the direction of the company. No raises since our pay cuts in 2008, We have an Incentive Comp plan that fosters hostility among peers because you are competing against each instead of working as a team. There is no rhyme or reason to the pay plan and theres no way to determine whether or not the final quarterly numbers they give you are the true numbers. They can manipulate the numbers in order to reward those favored employees. It really is ridiculous

    I worked at Ally Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There ARE NONE!! Stay COMPLETELY AWAY from this company that treats their employees like EXPENDABLE SLAVES!! They ride your back side EVERY MINUTE and threaten to FIRE YOU every other minute! I would have rated it a half star if I could. They rule with THREATS, INTIMIDATION AND FEAR! Do NOT work for this company unless it is the LAST JOB you can get!

    Cons

    Change their mind every other day on how they operate! CONSTANTLY being threatened with "up to and including TERMINATION" phrase. Collections site manager LITERALLY told everyone in collections: "If it comes down to my mortgage getting paid, or your mortgage being paid, MINE WILL BE PAID FIRST!"

    Advice to Management

    I hope your poor management bankrupts the company!
