    Pros

    The only pro I got from working at this company is the experience and support experience I obtained.

    Cons

    This company brought me nothing but headache. I worked at a branch located off of Barrett Parkway and all that they did was micro-manage and provide the most useless forms of work.
    My manager at one point knocked on a full-time employees bathroom door wondering where she was. I also saw this manager heckle and put down all of the employees and always being disappointed in performance when there was nothing other employees could have done.
    Just recently I put in my two weeks because I received a better job. I respectfully put in my two weeks and they terminated me two weeks later and never followed up with me so I could get my things or to just say exactly what happened. It was a very immature work environment and I am supposed to be the immature one!

    Advice to Management

    Chill out and treat your employees like humans with real lives. It is embarrassing how you treat employees.

    I have been working at Springleaf Finance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work with great training options available. Opportunity for advancement is good. Great compensation and branch rewards for performance.

    Cons

    Monthly goals are sometimes hard to meet. Work some Saturdays in my branch for not meeting weekly goals. Sometimes I feel like upper management do not think you are giving 100% if goals are not met.

    Advice to Management

    Know that most employees are going over and beyond trying to generate business for the company and trying to meet goals. Sometimes it is hard when you talk with customers and show them how you can help make their finances more managible for them and they say they are not interested resulting in you not making goals.

    I worked at Springleaf Finance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Close knit work environment. Opportunity to advance. Good bonus to compensate for hard work. Company is constantly having give a ways.

    Cons

    Monthly goals were made difficult to reach. The better you do, the higher your goals become. The company is constantly wanting more and places strain on their employees to do so. Very inconstant late nights and Saturdays. Management takes advantage of their position which is taken out on their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management keep closer watch on in office managers to ensure they are following policy and actually working their required hours. In office management needs to be more of a team player.
