    Pros

    Smart co-workers who are dedicated even when the environment has been tough. People are very creative in problem-solving and I really enjoy my co-workers. It's actually a really nice work environment. People who work at Sallie Mae are dedicated and want to succeed. With the right direction from senior management, there is a good chance for long-term growth and stability.

    Cons

    Lots of cuts in the last 2 years. Budget and people have been slashed to the point where the organization is very lean. It is hard when you don't know when the next cut is coming and what it will mean.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO is more of a visionary and has taken the company through some great and tough times. The President/COO lacks this vision and lacks leadership skills to truly run a company (rather than manage its finances). Worry that our heir-apparent to the CEO is not the right fit for the job.

  2. Great learning experience.

    Pros

    Excellent place to learn and grow if you can navigate through the red tape.

    Cons

    Company is still going through a transition which has resulted in the loss of talent through attrition and severance. Partnership between business and IT is strained.
