    Pros

    There is plenty of work to keep busy all day.

    Cons

    The hours of operation changing Friday and Saturday from the rest of the week. I would work later in the day if my hours could be the same Monday - Saturday.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people equally in your team. Be hands on when seeing the new hires struggle to learn protocol.

    Pros

    GreenSky is a wonderful place to work, in every aspect. We have a great culture on our team, which allows a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Our leadership team is responsive, loyal, and more than helpful when questions arise.

    Having a job where you can see the direct impact on your clients business is more than rewarding, which is why working for GreenSky is so great. Sales/account management jobs can be hard and stressful in any environment, but knowing your clients are benefitting from your hard work is the best feeling ever.

    GreenSky is constantly growing within our space, and we are gaining a ton of positive brand recognition, which is really exciting.

    Cons

    Challenges/cons are similar to any other company that is growing as rapidly as GreenSky. There are days that can be frustrating because of growing pains, but nothing serious enough to complain about.

    Also- we love the free lunches but Jason’s Deli gets old. Can we change this up?

    Advice to Management

    Management continues to surprise me, as they continue to give their employees everything they’ve got. Every ounce of energy (even on a Monday), every word of advice, and every smile/joke- your employees appreciate you. Having a management team that technically has a “door open” policy is beyond helpful, and I wouldn’t ask for anything more (unless you want to buy us lunch tomorrow- we wouldn’t be upset).

    I worked at Greensky full-time

    Pros

    Pay is decent. Some people are wonderful.

    Cons

    CEO only cares about money. No investment in people. Money from recent IPO will only makes executives richer. Antiquated systems. Cut-throat environment. Executives believe that having a big ego is a substitute for talent. Lack of diversity - with the exception of the head of HR, all other leaders are white males. Good old boys club feeling.

    Talented applicants should stay away. This company is toxic. You will quickly burn out unless you become part of the "in" group and replace your talent with a big ego (think pointy-hair boss from Dilbert)

    Advice to Management

    You are rich already. Fire yourselves and get some real talent to run the company.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Nothing positive to report. One star is too many for GreenSky Credit. Turn over speaks for itself with this company.

    Cons

    False promises to employees - this company goes out of their way to make sure you are NOT compensated fairly or as they promised.
    Just like their merchant agreement, they refuse to put anything in writing regarding pay or commission to avoid being held accountable
    Goals set you up for your failure

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees and treat everyone as you treat yourselves and your board of directors
