Pros

The company used to be great. Benefits, stock options, dynamic job.

Cons

Now the company is sliding into a pit. The current moral level at the company is horrid. Due to layoffs Fridays at Sallie Mae are like waiting for the headsmans ax. Most people are only staying at the company in hopes of getting a severance package.

Advice to Management

Quit looking at the bottom line and not at your people. If your people are happy and on board, the bottom line will follow. The company has lost it's goals. Providing students with loans has become secondary to making money for management. Employees are only doing enough work to survive, never to advance in any way. You need to change or die.

    Pros

    a paycheck. you work independently

    Cons

    The company robs the students. I cannot sit there and honestly sell. I have a concious and these kids are starting out with 20,000 in student loans and when they graduate their student loan bill is 40,000 in interest. this is just an example the interest is robbery.

    Advice to Management

    stop spending so much time going outside for a cidgerette when 5 employees walked,out in 4 days. the mgmt stick together among them selves . It is a call center!!! you can't trust anyone and they will stab you in the back if you turned to fast. I am sure i am leaving next i am just miserable there. TOO MANY CHANGES TOO FAST

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    There are some very bright people here to learn from and grow. The work like balance is strong with recognition that time with family is an important aspect of job satisfaction.

    Cons

    The salary is not very competitive. The company is going through some difficult times so some departments have little job security. The future profitability of the federal guarantee loan business is also in question so that makes the long term attractiveness of working at the company questionable.

    Advice to Management

    To compensate their employees at a much closer rate to their market value. And to communicate with them about their performance and expectations.
