      Pays well. Good team and good management. Really handled the transition to 100% remote very well.

      Cons

      Lack of opportunity to convert to a direct hire position from the contract role. Upper management let a few great employees leave due to the 18 month contract rule.

      Pros

      The co-workers are nice 95% of the time, and great for those wanting to work banking hours.

      Cons

      Upper management tends to lie or give little to no details about what will be going in the company, and have lie about promoting people to try to make them work harder.

      Pros

      The staff was great. My pay was raised to national standards.

      Cons

      The goals can be unrealistic at times. Different areas will produce different clientele. Upper management doesn't care about that.

      Pros

      Good PTO and Sick Day Bank

      Cons

      Racist coworkers and constantly being overworked. If upper management does not like you they will find ways to get rid of you. Probation period has low tolerance for mess ups and even if you do not do anything wrong since other people are trying to save their job they will pin the blame on you. Nasty coworkers and little diversity in the company.

      Pros

      -competitive 401k match. (6%) -most colleagues are nice -very stable bank -work life balance is excellent

      Cons

      -MICROMANAGEMENT- if you get a job within operations, expect to be micromanaged. Management expects you to update them on what you are doing every hour of the day. They will literally walk around and ask you what you are doing again and again. And at the end of the day expect you to write down a timesheet that breaks down everything you’ve done for the day. And the next day will question every small thing you did. -horrible work environment and paternalistic work culture. While colleagues are generally nice people, the unrealistic expectations as well as the micromanagement fosters a very hostile atmosphere that colleagues cannot even talk or get to know each other. The moment you try to even have a brief chat with a colleague about anything, managers will give you a side eye and will make some snarky comment about whether you have enough work on your plate. Absolutely awful. -compensation is some of the lowest in the industry -technology is EXTREMELY backdated. -you cannot work from home (even though most of your responsibilities can be done remotely). -zero room for advancement. If you’re hired for another role internally, you will get about a 2-3% raise. Only specific people are picked for promotions and higher raises and everyone else is ignored no matter how hard you work. -the health insurance was a joke -unrealistic expectations. Managers expect every single employee to do several jobs at once but refuse to pay people higher salaries. Managers also are not thankful of employees efforts. -communication is horrible. Upper management disseminates information in a very inefficient manner. I was under the impression that upper management hoarded information from others. -very high turnover. This place is a revolving door. People come in, and eventually realize that there is a very toxic culture and leave. There have been periods where entire teams would be vacant for months at a time. -parental leave could be better If you want a decent career please look elsewhere.

      Pros

      Remote work and like the people.

      Cons

      $10K max out of pocket medical policy really sucks with high deductible. 2% increases and increases aren't based on performance. Constantly feel like being taken advantage of. What upper management says direction for staff is and what they do are different. Business outlook is good, but feel at the cost of the employees. If you join, get all you can get out of them to start. 401K is decent, but they only contribute half of what other companies I have worked for do.
