    I have been working at Springleaf Finance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture and atmosphere created by great people that are hired within or externally. Flexible hours and unlimited overtime (I know, right?). Ample opportunities to move up within the company and have a voice, that actually gets heard. Constant recognition and praise, with certificates, raffles, contests and employee appreciation day each month. I absolutely love my job. I no longer have the stress of not liking my job or not being happy with the people I work with...not here ! Bonus structure and quotas are obtainable and they payout generously

    Cons

    Not a lot of Parking spots as we have filled up the collection floor over the last 6 months and running out of kitchen supplies too quickly. That's all I can complain about lol

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what your doing! You care about your team members and it shows.

    Pros

    Finally good pay, finally reasonable hours after 3 years of Hellish conditions. Interesting and challenging work with dynamic priorities and strategy. My department has exceptional freedom in accomplishing objectives. My direct leadership seems to appreciate and value innovation and hard work. The teamwork and team spirit within my group is the greatest I have ever experienced in an office. We have gone to war with one another and would go to war again for each other.

    Cons

    Highly political pre and post acquisition. No sense of security. Communication has not improved since regime change. Many people question their direction and importance.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more and be direct and honest. Politicized environment is often a detriment to productivity and is putting off talent not interested in games.

    Pros

    Smaller Company and therefore less red tape to get things done. Fun place to work with several onsite amenities. Great people with a willingness to get things done. Open lines of communication to Senior management. Growing business with further opportunities for future growth

    Cons

    Stability of positions due to ongoing integration activity. Lack of proper controls in certain key areas opens the business to excessive unnecessary risk that can damage company reputation and severely impact ongoing growth.

    Advice to Management

    Maximize efforts to implement controls in integrated environment quickly. Establish some risk training for all employees to help maximize efforts to incorporate more risk awareness

    Pros

    Decent pay. Decent hours. 3 weeks of vacation time. Insurance sales training and licensing. Decent sales training if you are new the industry.

    Cons

    The word I would use to describe the work environment would be sweatshop. Sales quotas mean nothing as management is never satisfied. Even if you meet and exceed your sales goals! The job itself isn't the problem. It is the company culture expecting robots and not people. I worked here for 3 months and ran as fast as I could.

    management should stop stop stop stop micro managing the branches and give autonomy to all employees when performing their duties
