    I have been working at Elevate Credit full-time

    Pros

    Risk Team analyst for ~3 years: - Great collaboration among data scientists - analysts typically stay in the loop on most models/strategies being implemented - Analysts drive an important part of the company - one of the best things about Elevate is that any analyst can produce meaningful strategies with massive impacts - Open to new ideas/growth - Elevate welcomes novel approaches to solving problems and pushing the company forward. There is no set method for building a model or strategy - Friendly employees- this goes for the entire company - everyone is incredibly friendly and welcoming. The Risk Team typically has trivia or social hours every other Friday (virtually while we are working remotely)

    Cons

    - Tight timelines - delivery of models and strategies can sometimes be rushed but also thoroughly vetted by other analysts/managers. This seems typical of a FinTech setting. Not necessarily a con but this is a fast-paced environment where priorities can change often. Not all strategies/models are fully implemented and every department maintains a flexible project list.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Elevate Credit full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some good people, and nice workers trying to keep the company afloat and overcome a poor Executive Team

    Cons

    Flawed business model that relies on bank partners to "fund" operations which restricts growth plans. Poor executive leadership (particularly in Credit Risk and IT App Dev) is chasing away all the good talent. Heavy handed "command and control" empire builders without a true strategy, but quick to blame other teams when not delivering. This company can't get out of it's own way. Just look at all the good leaders that have left in the past 3-4 years including 2 chief marketing officers, 2 chief credit officers, 2 chief product officers, over 10 IT directors and VPs, and the CEO/Founder himself. So if you like chaos, constant managerial changes and having the blame passed down to you -- then this is your place!
