    Pros

    Back when the industry was good and we held great employees, it was an awesome place to work, but past 2-3 yrs the company has gone down hill. The company still holds some great people to work with depending on the area you land in.

    Cons

    Downsized considerable and rather than trying to retain valuable employees by moving them into other positions they were let go. Management is poor at communicating what is expected of their employees or where the company is headed. If you work there at the present, expect to be overworked, untrained, and stressed.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate clearly expectations of performance to employees, communicate mission of company and projections of company to employees, and concentrate on core competencies.

    Pros

    Medical benefits are ok, free on-site flu shot, nice cafe. Sallie Mae offers tuition reimbursement. Location is close to I-95, easy commute

    Cons

    Sallie Mae was a great place to work. 3 years ago top management was taken over by ex-MBNA employees. That was the beginning of the end. Sallie Mae is no longer a place that values hard working employees. Constant talk to cost cutting, but you will see cubicles installed and employees moved in, then 3 months later all the employees will be moved, a crew comes in and tears down the cubicles and installs them again in a different formation. This cycle repeats over and over again.
