    I have been working at Navient full-time

    Pros

    There are many talented, smart people at the company.

    Cons

    Leadership talks about the company values, but it's mostly just talk.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to improve employee engagement, you need to foster a more inclusive culture that values people at all levels with actual programs and benefits for them.

    I worked at Navient full-time

    Pros

    The people I worked with were amazing and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Navient is trying to find a new niche as loan portfolios to service are dwindling and the government contracts are in limbo. Direction is constantly changing and sometimes after spending months on a project the plug gets pulled without much if any explanation.

    I have been working at Navient full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent tuition reimbursement, amount of PTO awarded, cafeteria on site, convenient physical location (Wilkes-Barre office), and some excellent coworkers who care about the borrowers.

    Cons

    Low wages, poor training, toxic culture, management disconnect with day-to-day operations. Management fails to respond to employees’ emails and questions about accounts, which hurts the borrowers in the end. Many of these questions wouldn’t need to be asked in the first place if the employees were actually trained how to do their jobs. Then again, management doesn’t know how to do their own jobs, let alone have a realistic picture of their employees’ workloads. Even though constantly changing standards can be stressful, they are tolerable if management at least notifies their employees about these changes. Retaliation for speaking up about opportunities for improvement also exists. If you try to transfer to another department, your supervisor can prevent you from doing so by lying and giving the hiring manager a bad review in order to keep you in your current role. This has been documented.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees how to do their jobs! Provide them the tools they need to succeed and stop setting them up for failure. Stop coddling ineffective middle management that openly gossips about employees on the floor, creating poor morale. Do not understaff departments to the point of forcing employees to work nearly double time. Treat employees with the respect they deserve under the culture you are trying to appropriate.

    Pros

    Good people to work with for the most part. Although nobody usually stays past 6 months. Th facilities are nice though.

    Cons

    Never any constancy in pay or management styles. We’re going though “operational efficiencies” meaning we do more with less pay and benefits. With the big lawsuit by the government I don’t see them staying in business if they loose.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. You apparently don’t know how to write emails or talk to anyone. Also stop staying locked in your office all day to avoid your teams.

    I worked at Navient full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It’s relatively easy to get hired. “Okay” health insurance.

    Cons

    Very negative work environment (similar to the childishness of being back in high school.) Never forget that you are one hundred percent replaceable! Why pay someone who’s qualified the wages they deserve? They can replace you with someone less qualified and pay them less money! Policy inconsistencies. Lack of communication between departments and teams. Customers are absolutely not their main focus. Management is made up of mostly unqualified individuals (often they’re promoted internally due to favoritism.) There are large lay-offs every other year or two. When they’re letting people go, it doesn’t matter if you’ve been there for one year or twenty-five. Absolutely NO job security. It’s nearly impossible to separate the stress of work from your home life.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting/hiring unfit individuals that replace the QUALIFIED people you let go! Let the people go whose performance dictates it! Put the customer first. This is a business, not high school. Act like grown adults and hold everyone to the same standard.
