    I have been working at Stone Street Capital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonable hours (9 to 6), rewarding work, friendly coworkers, department transferability (i.e you can go from sales to operations or vice versa depending on the company needs), management and senior staff that are available and willing to help, genuinely kind office culture

    Cons

    Office in Bethesda (I live in Baltimore so it is a long commute), difficulty working with customers, making adjustments to complete a transaction, lots of moving parts to learn when starting out

    Advice to Management

    Create formalized training for sales reps, and probably other departments as well

    • Management is very involved; they listen and take time to mentor those who are new to sales and the financial industry.

    Cons

    • The traffic coming and in and out of Bethesda during the weekday
    • The building is old, but they are working on that.
    • Cubicles

    Advice to Management

    For the most part, keep doing what you're doing. Listening to our voices and opinions has a positive impact on the work environment here. Also, the weekly meetings, and taking the time out to evaluate our strengths and weaknesses, allows for us to improve, learn, and really feel confident in the work we are doing.

    I have been working at Stone Street Capital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    As the saying goes "“Culture eats strategy for breakfast." We are lucky to have both: a culture that developed towards valuing people and a strategy for success. Learning and coaching are a big part of the employee experience. If you are talented and committed, you will find your opportunity. Work/life balance is one of the best benefits.

    Cons

    The office building is a bit run down, although the kitchen was just remodeled so that's nice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring talented people! There will always be a place for them.

    We have had a great year in recruiting new people to join our team. Some of our newest team members have made a huge contribution and it has been great to see.

    Pros

    Good company culture and the CEO cares about employees. Good PTO policy and benefits.

    Cons

    Customers can be very challenging to help and competitors cut corners and create issues for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in employees and work to grow other business lines to help the company grow.

    I worked at Stone Street Capital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has a business casual dress policy and work ethics

    Cons

    Because of the company's culture of being casual, being casual has been pushed to its limits. Too much company gossip lead to upper management. No privacy. One can not talk to a manager and expect what is communicated to be kept private. Also employee's opinions are not valued. Due to having tenure management employees, things are done the hard way rather than the easy and more developed way.

    Advice to Management

    Tap into your work force. It is only with new ideas that the company can transcend to higher limits. Invest into your employees to get more out of them.

    Pros

    It's an environment where you're encouraged, challenged, and supported every step of the way. They take time to understand their employees strengths and help them develope a career. The team work with a splash of competition keeps performance and spirits high. Something that sets this company apart, is that management genuinely encourages and promotes a healthy work/life balance.

    Cons

    Commute to this area is always bad.

    Advice to Management

    Continue encouraging great team work.

    Pros

    I've been with Stone Street less than 2 months, but so far so good. It's a welcoming & friendly work environment. CEO is forth coming and honest about the company's goals and areas for improvement. He does an excellent job making one feel like they are a part of the team, being approachable, open to creativity of ideas and sharing accountability. Diligent about finding solutions for everything. Management has been patient and detail oriented with my training. I trust that I'm in very capable hands. Great benefits overall, casual dress code and laid-back work environment, but it doesn't undermine productivity.

    Cons

    The building is old and could you some improvement, but comfortable nonetheless. I believe they are working on it and you have options to make your space comfortable for you. The office manager is very accommodating and great at setting you up for success. Location seems safe and everything works. Not that big a deal for me otherwise. No other cons at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open and honest with staff about company, sharing ideas and being approachable. Teamwork makes the dream work.

    I worked at Stone Street Capital full-time

    Pros

    The company is fun, Hugh energy environment that rewards hard work and fast learners.

    Cons

    The culture, CEO's disposition and corporate decor needs a lot of work. The Structured Settlement business looks to be declining and will eventually be further regulated. Many of the senior managers are JG went worth rejects and only care about the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify the business and really invest in new employees.

    Pros

    Co-workers were friendly. Great learning environment, managers always available for coaching. Bagel Mondays, great location, decent benefits. short cubicle walls to see over and talk with co workers.

    Cons

    The type of work of buying people's annuities is generally quite depressing and in my opinion sleazy which is one reason I got out of it. Its on the phones all the time job, not my thing. cut throat competition in industry, zero customer loyalty

    Advice to Management

    It seems like the business is drying up
