    I have been working at Sallie Mae

    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.

    I worked at Sallie Mae

    Pros

    Back when the industry was good and we held great employees, it was an awesome place to work, but past 2-3 yrs the company has gone down hill. The company still holds some great people to work with depending on the area you land in.

    Cons

    Downsized considerable and rather than trying to retain valuable employees by moving them into other positions they were let go. Management is poor at communicating what is expected of their employees or where the company is headed. If you work there at the present, expect to be overworked, untrained, and stressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate clearly expectations of performance to employees, communicate mission of company and projections of company to employees, and concentrate on core competencies.

    No opinion of CEO
