Before a brutal culture shift and waves of downsizing, this was a wonderful place to work. At the end of the day, you are a number, a headcount, a salary. You won't find any Loyalty here.
When applying for a job here, make sure the job matches the description. Many people find themselves being slotted into a generic role, nothing like what they signed up for. For many newcomers, this place is seen as a career dead-end.
The environment is TOXIC. LoyaltyOne is looking for soldiers to simply follow orders. Innovation is dead at LoyaltyOne, as is their Air Miles reputation.
When you see management at all levels starting to jump ship (the SVP, CFO for example), you have to start wondering about the future of the company.
Work-from-home for corporate positions is allowed in most cases, but frowned on. Some management will actually dictate where you can physically work - that is, heads down work in a meeting room can be frowned upon as well. The level of micro-management depends on the manager, of course.
swanky downtown office, good people
work-life balance, dreadful town hall meetings, politics, "pod leadership"
