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

    Pros

    Management was good and fair. They treated me with respect.. I had no problem with them laying me off and they hooked me up with a good package. They called me back not too long after they laid me off.

    Cons

    They never seemed eager to "get in the game" and be a major player. I guess that is a con but they knew what they wanted to do. It just wasn't as aggressive as I would have liked.

    Advice to Management

    Management at AmeriCredit is top notch. Keep doing what you are doing. I enjoyed my time at AmeriCredit, it was just a bad fit at the time.

    Pros

    An okay place to get underwriting experience. A few of the credit managers are good to work for. Good location.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to competitors, micromanaged, poor communication, high turnover rate, always a "but" after any type of praise, takes forever to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees do the job they were hired to do without being micromanaged, and give praise when it's due. Quit focusing on phone time and focus more on the talent that you have and the good job they're doing. It's about the quality of the phone calls not the quantity. Quit being overly corporate.

    Pros

    If you naturally enjoy underwriting then you will be okay.Fun relationships with dealers

    Cons

    No room for growth, diminishing bonuses, promotions are for "friends" of management only and not for performance. Constantly changing goals. disparages in treatment of others.

    Advice to Management

    senior management needs to keep a tight watch or how the satellite branches are run. Seems they are pretty much doing what they want.
