    I worked at Sallie Mae full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Pretty good people for the most part. Telecommuting is a real plus but not well managed.

    Cons

    Poor, poor Company management. Penny wise and dollar foolish. Just look at FDR. They don't follow their own values. If the shareholders were aware of the money wasted they would vote out the entire board. And the CEO should have retired when he blew the FLOWERS DEAL.

    Advice to Management

    Get some management that actually cares about the company, values and it's people. Get a CEO that can be the face of the company (and can handle public speaking).

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Sallie Mae full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very good staff to work with. Management that reside in Fishers is pretty good to work with and for.

    Cons

    The organization has been divided into to companies, The company in Fishers is focused on Student Loan Servicing (Setting up and servicing loans, debt management). The company on the East coast is focused on personal financial services (savings/checking e-banking, credit card, Upromise rewards). May want to sell Student Servicing if a buyer could be found Staff layoffs continue to occur, although not as frequently and in smaller numbers.Probably not a place to find a long term career.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to Fisher's management, they know more about their resources and business processes. Improve benefits Staff keep wondering who will be next in layoffs, some actually look forward to it to get out from under the threat. Stop the layoffs, by now the company should be stable, if not start looking at top management.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Sallie Mae

    Pros

    Excellent place to learn and grow if you can navigate through the red tape.

    Cons

    Company is still going through a transition which has resulted in the loss of talent through attrition and severance. Partnership between business and IT is strained.
