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

    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.

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

    Pros

    The people are great. Pay is above average. The office atmosphere is usually upbeat. The hours are ok. Overall the office is enjoyable. Most managers are very understanding about taking days off.

    Cons

    Crazy goals. They are always changing things. You do well one month, not so well the next month and they have you wondering if you still have a job. If you don't reach your goal, be it daily or weekly you are punished by having to work late (7pm) or even come in Saturdays to make collection calls. Being new is a huge disadvantage. The older workers have most of the good businesses set up already and most long term customers only want to talk to them. Then management looks at you and asks why you can't produce loans!

    Advice to Management

    More one on one coaching. Making sure that business gets distributed among the employees fairly even if it's a merchant loan. Reward hard work as well as the final numbers.

    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.

    I have been working at Springleaf Finance full-time

    Pros

    A diverse workforce across a large footprint. Great on-site (hq) amenities. There are multiple opportunities for advancement and lateral moves into different functional areas.

    Cons

    As with most places these days, there is a clear generational divide between the workforce. Dealing with the folks who have been here for 30+ years and have one method ingrained in them can be frustrating.

    Behind in terms of catering to a progressive workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking at ways to allow flexible or alternative scheduling. It is frustrating to see companies around you move to a model that supports working from home, alternating hours, and other methods of achieving balance.
