    I worked at SquareTwo Financial full-time

    Pros

    The IT team was a smart, talented, and capable team. Everyone worked well together and created a culture of getting good work done in a timely manner. There was very little politics, and if there was a problem, we all worked to together to solve it. They also allowed work from home at the end of my time there, which was highly beneficial.

    Cons

    No cons that I can think of.

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

    Pros

    Sharp people. Good compensation and benefits. Excellent HR team. Scrupulous for a collections outfit.

    Cons

    A combination of bad strategy and lack of financial discipline lead to a company acquisition by bondholders KKR and Apollo who sold SquareTwo to another collections outfit who planned to (and did) liquidate all SquareTwo staff.

    Advice to Management

    Well, the company's no longer a thing and management consists mostly of people who kinda went down the wrong hole to begin with. I'd advice them in the future to be more clear eyed about their operational strategy and to not let stereotypical frat guys run the company.
