Pros

Smart co-workers who are dedicated even when the environment has been tough. People are very creative in problem-solving and I really enjoy my co-workers. It's actually a really nice work environment. People who work at Sallie Mae are dedicated and want to succeed. With the right direction from senior management, there is a good chance for long-term growth and stability.

Cons

Lots of cuts in the last 2 years. Budget and people have been slashed to the point where the organization is very lean. It is hard when you don't know when the next cut is coming and what it will mean.

Advice to Management

The CEO is more of a visionary and has taken the company through some great and tough times. The President/COO lacks this vision and lacks leadership skills to truly run a company (rather than manage its finances). Worry that our heir-apparent to the CEO is not the right fit for the job.
