    Pros

    You are reading this review. If you are a prospective employee, this tells you exactly why not to work here. That's the only pro.

    Cons

    Its a never ending list however I will try to keep it short. Instead of helping you overcome your weaknesses, managers will keep a track of everything you did wrong and make you feel terrible. There are apparently no training programs to help college grads transition into managers. This makes them too stressed about simplest things and tend to micro manage. The management treats employees like trash scum. These employees become managers in a few years and follow into the footsteps of their seniors. This has caused layers and layers of poor managers and the attitude change is almost irreversible. After 6 months, you keep doing the same stuff over and over again and again. Your career goes into a never ending for loop until you find a new job and quit. Once out you feel like you are finally free from Guantanamo of your career.

    Advice to Management

    The management doesn't care.

    Pros

    I think you get to learn a lot about the credit card industry and the fast paced environment is definitely challenging. There is a lot of learn early on.

    Cons

    The biggest Concern in my view is the management. There are groups within the teams and divide is pretty evident. People support each other because they have been friends in college and talk about every other team member. Managers are untrained to handle pressure from bosses and they change managers without asking the employee. The expectations are not set. if you want to change your team they will hang you in the air saying I support you and in the hindsight tell bosses that this employee is not interested in doing work. The managers are waiting to behind the back of higher ups to do whatever they feel like doing and not tell anyone about it. Performance reviews are a joke and Bonuses they give are not upto the industry standards. The ugliest thing about this company is that if you do 1 small thing wrong and 100 things right they won't care how much you have done. It's that mistake they will remember and blame you.The culture of the company is very biased in that way.

    Advice to Management

    I would say recruit good people and take care of them. Team structure should be more flat and give more voice to employees and not their managers.
