Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Sallie Mae full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Some great people doing a great job. Large enough company to find those who can assist you learn the business but not dynamic enough for internal career growth.

Cons

Lack of leader from the CEO. He appears to only look out for himself under the guise of shareholder value. It gets old quick.

Advice to Management

Time to develop employees if you want to retain talent. Top talent is not looking to go here. In the financial services world there are so many better companies to work for. Value and reward your employees better than you have historically.

    I worked at Sallie Mae full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, loved the corporate cafeteria and on-site gym

    Cons

    There wasn't much room for advancement in the recruiting department due to the structure, but I probably would have had room to grow in other areas of HR if I had wanted to and the layoff didn't occur.


  2. "Great environment, high energy, fast paced..."
