I worked at Security Finance Corporation of Spartanburg full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

SFC is one of the two largest consumer lending institutions in the US. The Company has great financial statements and in good health [for now]. When I was there, the Company had branches in just about every state where predatory, consumer lending is legal or not regulated out of profitability and 80+ branches in Mexico. The corporate HQ has a really nice gym.

Cons

EXTREMELY POLITICAL organization. It's a family owned business and the current owner is the founder's daughter. My perception of her is that she would periodically step in to the management of the business and stir the pot, back out, and peridically return. The Company tends not to hire educated personnel, other than key positions. The Company perception of the company is that the VP of HR is the most powerful person in the organization because she is good friends with the owner's daughter. Not to mention, you have to find a way to justify/rationalize the fact that you work for a predatory lender that ruins the lives of its uneducated, naive customer base...

Advice to Management

Work on the Company's perception of Management, work on the perception of the Company, hire more educated people.

    Pros

    great insurance for whole family or individual employees.

    Cons

    unethical business practices. Forcing employees to give out bad loans to make numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop forcing bad loans for numbers that will turn into bad debt. This is part of economy being bad.

    Pros

    Some of the pros for working for SFC is management lets management run their own office that fits the geographical area, hours, clients, organization, management

    Cons

    The downside to working for SFC is clients not paying, very slow days, and staff not taking job seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get too stressed out, even if they like you sometimes they don't pay! If a manager is underperforming take the time out to find out whats wrong. It could be a simple issue that could get them to succeed.
