We need Biden to deal with student debt like a business would. Cancel an amount that will provide completely relief to 70% of debtors. Those who abused the system still have to pay off their balance and everyone else can invest their resources into reinvigorating our service based economy.

    They don't value their employees

    Pros

    - There are a lot of smart people who work at Amount - Unlimited PTO - Work life balance was usually pretty good - Good place to learn if you are able to work without much direction or support

    Cons

    - Poor compensation, its clear that retaining talent is not a priority. As a minority female employee, I was severely under-paid (for the market as well as within the company), made the same amount as a male teammate who was two role levels BELOW me. Had to fight for more than a year to be properly compensated. Funny that they talk about diversity, equity, and inclusion, but don't care enough to take compensation parity for underrepresented groups seriously. - Constant re-orgs with no solid plans on execution (if there were plans, they were not communicated to the people impacted) - C-suite was pretty much all white men - No training or support for managers - Lots of burn out, its hard to stay motivated in that environment - Weak product leadership. There was no direction, priorities shifted constantly and product roadmaps were at the whim of BD and Sales.

    Great Opportunity, Solid Company

    Pros

    -Leadership is very honest and open about opportunities and challenges. -People with strong tech experience -Major enterprise deals -Great culture for developing junior talent -Amazing work-life balance. Nobody is online before 830am and after 5pm

    Cons

    -Pay is low. You can easily leverage your Amount experience to get 1.5-2x your total compensation at other firms (including ones in Chicago). -Reorgs a few times a year. -Too much implementation work. Sometimes feels like we're just an tech outsourcing shop. -Turnover is fairly high. Mostly attribute this to the low pay and the fact that Amount is now a Series D company.

    Growing, but lots of holes

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Good place to learn - Surrounded by great talent

    Cons

    - Boy's club mentality - if you're not there from the beginning or not friends with someone - its over. You're not going very far. You can give your all and work 20 hour days, weekends, but no one cares. Upper management just uses you and doesn't give credit. - Talent is there, but you can clearly see that they are leaving for other companies - Pay is horrible; Benefits do not help offset bad pay.

    Fantastic and Exciting Company to Work For

    Pros

    Bright and approachable leaders, smart and collaborative teammates and cross functional partners, incredibly important work to tackle every day, tons of growth opportunities, energizing and positive work environment. It's exciting to come to work everyday at Amount.

    Cons

    Not a con, but we're a start-up and actively building some employee structures more mature companies have in place. It's exciting to be part of building this but if you like to come in with a prescriptive playbook handed to you - a start-up is likely not your optimal environment.

    Interesting Work, Growing Industry

    Pros

    - Tons of opportunity in the BNPL (buy now, pay later) space. Amount is in a good position to have solid reach in the market against competitors. - Smart, helpful colleagues - Room to “create your own destiny” in the company as it is still growing rapidly and expanding - Flexible PTO which offers so peace of mind for mental health - Products offered are interesting and competitive in the market

    Cons

    - Health insurance is bad and extremely expensive for the coverage you get. This is the biggest downfall for me. - Some org change decisions are confusing, but I suppose that comes with working at a start-up
