    Pros

    Looks wonderful on your resume, political correctness never monitored, mentoring in Marketing, intimate seating arrangements

    Cons

    Big egos, lack of transparency, extreme frugality, lack of professional development and investment in employees, misogyny, chaotic decision-making, prioritization of bottom line over customers, interpretation and implementation of diversity throughout the business

    Advice to Management

    Please take the time to invest in the employees that pour their energy and work into this business with very little recognition or return. Whether through clearer career paths within the company or amenities and resources that help employees achieve a greater work-life balance, there is a lot that can be done to create a better culture with happier people.

    The near toxic culture of entitlement and power leads to exchanges ranging from passive aggressive to executives going red in the face, along with tension that is almost always too high. The lack of investment in technology and proper development of employees is inexcusable from a company that boasts itself as an industry leader.

    Please begin promoting and empowering women and people of color in this company as equally as you continually empower white males. Please care about customers as much as you claim you do. Please get water that doesn't run out. Please pay for Kleenex. Please tell male executives that women have names and don't want to be called Sunshine or other pet names.

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

    Pros

    Good starting base.
    Patient solutions is the department you want. STAY AWAY FROM HOME IMPROVEMENT

    Cons

    Managers are allowed to erupt in public, curse-filled, outbursts while slamming tables.
    Management is useless. There are too many managers and very few respond to your emails.
    There is no longer any culture here. No more mixers/holiday parties. They have a foosball table, but those who play, are frowned upon
    Nobody can explain where the commission numbers come from. The commission is not clear no matter how much they say it. They just show you an excel with your numbers.
    Onboard training is a joke led by someone who has never made a call themselves.
    There are no spiffs to incentivize sales reps.
    Books of business have been changing roughly every 8 months for the past two years. Hard to grow and create relationships when constantly getting a new book of business.
    Too many meetings that eat up selling time throughout the week. One week we had over 10 meetings, as tele-salespeople...
    Every department works against each other.

    Advice to Management

    Stop yelling and cursing in meetings. Learn to keep your cool.
    Respond to emails your reps send.
    Get a new training program for new hires.
    Hold regular one on ones.
    Dont have meetings just to have meetings.
    Bring back some culture.
    Get rid of reps clearly not doing the right things.
    Learn to motivate salespeople. Constant negativity is actually not the best way to motivate people.
    Treat everyone better.

    Pros

    The pay only . Benefits.

    Cons

    The trainer is rude, nasty, mean and pride his self of termination. If you talk when he talk termination, if y’all ur 1 min late your termination, the room felt so odd that no one will talk cause he pride his self on terminating. It’s his way or no way. He pride his self on how he don’t have to work cause his spouse is rich so if you don’t like what he say termination. I felt and also the whole class feels so uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    The trainer is going to stop the workers from even making it to the Florida r. He is rude and nasty

    Pros

    Great place to work if you like change, you will not get bored. Fun environment, plenty of smart people. Decent pay. Good business model that may rocket company to the top, although it may be just a matter of time before it's swallowed by big competitor.

    Cons

    Your innovative ideas will be stolen and someone else will take credit for it. If you try to show your best, your manager will feel threatened and you immediately will be suppressed. Upper managers are bringing in their own people and even relatives in droves that are totally unqualified for the job. too many overpaid directors and c execs who do pretty much nothing of value.

    Advice to Management

    Fix broken processes. Recognize and promote high achievers.

    Pros

    I got a paycheck and insurance.

    Cons

    This is a company that has NO written policies and it prides itself on this. For a financial services company to have NO written policies is simply absurd. This makes it extremely difficult to do the job. I mean if you are told you are doing something wrong you have nothing to refer back to to see what the correct procedure should be. How can you hold someone for an error if there is no procedure stating what the process should be?

    Advice to Management

    Create some written procedures!!!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of entire executive team and start from fresh especially on the healthcare side
