    Pros

    The salary is fair for the position. Most positions have weekends off and the latest shift end time is 9 pm. Also, this location had several conveniences on-site, such as a store and a buffet-style cafeteria.

    Cons

    As anyone who has ever worked at a call center knows, the call center life can become very redundant as the day to day is the same.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with agents and less time hiding behind the desk. The only complaint that I have about my experience at Sallie Mae is that the supervisors did not spend much time with their agents.


  2. "Good people struggling to turn the ship to calmer waters."

    Pros

    Nice facilities and clean workspace. Onsite fitness center and full service cafeteria. Flexibility to work from home occasionally as needed. Plenty of on-campus parking available. Parking lots and sidewalks are cleared of ice and snow.

    Cons

    Perpetual downsizing and layoffs due to the loss of FFELP business model. Company is struggling to create new business lines to replace revenue. The cost of health benefits are high due to a largely aging workforce. Majority of computer equipment (5+ yrs old) needs replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to develop "innovative" products that students and parents do not need. Focus on proven business models and expanding lower risk debt portfolio. Sell the company.
