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

    Pros

    I worked for GreenSky for a number of years. When I first started I knew nothing about the Home Improvement Industry, loans, interest rates, etc. If you're looking to get in with a growing company and industry leader this is the right place. The training, leadership, and work environment is 2nd to none! "If You’re Offered a Seat on a Rocket Ship, You Don’t Ask What Seat. You Just Get On.”

    Cons

    The gourmet coffee machine, casual work environment, terrific benefits, team outings...should I keep going?

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire top talent and lead by example!

    I have been working at Greensky full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The money is great and that is how they will hook you. They will come to you like a siren and convince you to leave your company for the money.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance the will grind your life into powder including nights and weekends. You may have the money but for how long, the attrition rate here is horrible and if you don't tow managements particular line and have an opinion that could help they will fire you in a hot second. I have witnessed countless members be let go around me and it breeds the fear that it seems they are looking for. All these people have family's to support. There seems to be very little team work even though they are trying to foster it. The constant restructuring and fear they produce keeps the team building they try to do a moot point. It is hard to want to team build within your team when people are constantly leaving, being let go, fired, or moved to another team.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people and then restructuring people out of work. It is rude to promise people away from their company's just to fire them, force them out after you are done using them. Your team work needs some retooling it has more to do with the fear you foster. Try harder to team build when you have a static team and are not having issues with employment. Actually care about work life balance. Being a salary employee it is understandable that we will have to work some long hours sometimes, but when it is a constant struggle and always being overworked it becomes hard. Also your work from home policy needs work you act like the salary employees are punching a clock. We can work 15 hours a day but if you are not at the office it does not count and we are treated like micromanaged clock punchers. You can always pull our VPN logs if you are concerned about hours but in the end we are salary you should be worrying about quality and quantity not staring at us while we work, it does not help morale.

    Pros

    Pay was fair, and receiving a paycheck is always good.

    Cons

    Bad company culture, poor training, and lied to about the amount of commission that was going to be made.

    Advice to Management

    Better training program. Try to make the office environment more enjoyable so that going to work everyday does not feel like you're entering a dungeon.

    Pros

    Growing company with great benefits

    Cons

    Training class is more like a psychological(mind-reading) class more so than a learning environment depending on the trainer.

    Advice to Management

    During training. One day needs to be set aside for all the compliance docs instead of being rushed through it.Penalize the trainer and not the new hire's. Trainer should stick to material instead of the high level of sarcastic delivery.

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

    Pros

    There are no pros when commission goes down even though you are making goals.

    Cons

    Large numbers of accounts are taken out of your portfolio with no warning or discussion. Commission drops. You have to start building again.
    Also, the commission plan is changed mid-year and commission is lowered. The company is breaking profit revenue records.
    New Account Managers make the same commission as ones who have worked hard for years.

    Advice to Management

    Do not control commissions. Adding reps to expand the department should not drastically decrease commissions.
    Appreciate the people who have helped the department grow. When a rep asks to be rewarded look for reasons to help them, not reasons not to help them.

    Pros

    At least you get a paycheck...

    Cons

    Lead by fear, everyone is unhappy with upper management, not a product you are proud of, severe lack of honesty, integrity and morality.

    Advice to Management

    From the top down there is always a sense of fear created among employees. Stories of people getting screamed at or fired in meetings abound. This unhealthy culture needs to be fixed.
