    I worked at Direct Capital as an intern

    Pros

    Direct Capital:
    -is a results driven environment that rewards people for accomplishing goals
    -has an excellent leadership team that values input from employees!
    -is a fun work environment
    -is a comfortable size (200-300 employees under one roof)
    -is growing

    Cons

    The one con (for me) about Direct Capital is that it is only in New Hampshire and I am looking to work on the West Coast. Aside from that, it is a great place to work!

    I have been working at Direct Capital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Located just off of Woodbury ave. in Portsmouth NH. I've loved it here since day one. There is a lot of opportunity for growth, and can climb the ladder quickly. The culture here is an attribute that I believe keeps a lot of employees around. Compensation is extremely solid as well.

    Cons

    I would like the option to work from home sometimes, but that will come down the road. I understand the mentality of trying to have everyone in the building, it creates energy and togetherness.

    Advice to Management

    Management has been amazing in my time here. I'm in sales and from the entry level position to where I am now, each manager along the way has provided a road map on how to excel and climb to the next position. I can't say enough great things about the management team here.

    The parking lot fills up quick.

    Pros

    The 10 Core Values of Direct Capital are no joke and their importance is consistently reinforced by DCC's way of doing business. I came to Direct Capital from a company that placed little value on entrepreneurial spirit. I've found that the management at Direct Capital not only appreciates, but encourages, questions, ideas and opinions. It's an environment that fosters employee engagement, creating a healthy work environment and cultivating innovation. I look forward to a great future with the company!

    Cons

    It would be great to have an on-site representative from CIT Corporate, our parent company, to handle questions related to payroll, benefits, etc.

    Advice to Management

    The effort to involve employees in every day decisions and to create forums that encourage discussion and participation does not go unnoticed.

    Pros

    Direct Capital allows unlimited growth potential. The company is supportive of individual's careers and helping shape their path to success. Direct Capital is built on core values and making sure it's employees truly embody these values in their actions everyday.

    Cons

    If you don't like change this isn't the place for you.

    Pros

    Endless opportunity for those willing to grow. If you see change as a open door then this is the place for you. There are great opportunities with DCC as they grow. Controlling your career by doing the right things every day will get you there.

    Cons

    Not a good place for those who are complacent. If your seeking a job that is easy and the scenery never changes this is NOT the place for you.

    Pros

    Innovative company, growing quickly, with amazing people and a truly compelling vision.

    Cons

    Growth pains; progress is often slowed down as a result of getting bigger. Direct Capital suffers mildly from this common symptom of success.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in world-class people. Entering the top tier of an industry requires brilliant people, that are likely not cheap or easy to find. Invest in getting those people.

    Pros

    Excellent leadership (not management but leadership) fast paced, change driven environment. Employees are empowered to make decisions and are encouraged to do so. HR team is knowledgeable and extremely helpful and company has events to keep employees motivated.

    The negative reviews on here are easily identified as former employees who were looking for a place to coast - which isn't here. Direct Capital is really a place for the truly motivated.

    Since the Direct Capital / CIT partnership the benefits and pay structure have improved greatly. We now have tuition reimbursement and cost efficient health insurance. Heck we even have Pet Insurance!

    Cons

    The free coffee isn't the best, but it is free so that isn't too bad. Feels like the company should have a game room as we have a gym and a "Beatles Lounge" - but again not really Cons. The only real con I have found is a lack of parking after the lunch hour

    Advice to Management

    Keep the company living up to the core values - this will enable the company to continue to grow especially with the recent partnership.

    Pros

    Without a doubt, this is the most energetic company I have ever worked for. Every employee is driven with a common goal and all departments work at full capacity to achieve it. As a newer employee, I had a great overall experience with the hiring process. From application to interview to offer, I was given exceptional attention by the HR team. I have joined Direct Capital with optimism and excitement as I expand my career in business lending!

    Cons

    Too new to judge; so far I am finding little not to like!

    Advice to Management

    Stay enthusiastic; it is the best motivator!
