Amazing job
Loan Servicing Advisor (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ17 June 2019
Free food everyday and all day, parking/light rail, free benefits, bonus, and events. Great pay, excellent work environment, HR doesn't seem like the enemy, OT. There's always some bad apples on the tree, but the orchard is amazing!!

Credit Operations Specialist II (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ25 August 2018
This company fell off the map QUICK! Management are yes men and will openly lie to your face and talk about you behind your back. Most of the staff is on written corrective action for being under goal but that is because there are NO LOANS to work. Managers will take loans you already worked and give them to other agents on their team, ultimately screwing you over. The majority of the staff is currently looking at leaving cause we have to look after ourselves as they can fire you for under performing. The company tries to distract you with free drinks and snacks, happy hours that very few people go to and having auctions to win prizes. Don’t be fooled by that. It’s intentional to keep you from wanting to leave. But do yourself a favor and run as fast as you can from his train wreck. The writing has been written on the wall and you’ll regret wasting your time here

I would not recommend this company to anyone!
Loan Review Specialist (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ7 August 2018
To start off, Internal issues are not kept private.The interview process is so unorganized, you do not know who you will interview with and some managers seem unwilling to be there. The 3 day training is a joke , in which the trainer uses profanity within the lectures and was unprofessional. The company believes that their perks like free drinks and snacks are their culture.There is no flexibility in scheduling or time off. Cliques within management run this office. The goals are unattainable and everything is ever changing ,no one is ever on the same page.There is a lack of communication, direction, or accountability. Employee ideas are never taken into consideration. Management is unfair and acts biased towards employees, making false promises. Micro management at this company is the absolute worst.The director hovers over employees and has no personable skills.They do not promote those that work hard, they promote based on favoritism. I have never seen so much turnover within a company as i have with this one.
Pros
Free snacks and drinks
Cons
No work life balance, Unrealistic goals, Unprofessional management, No accountability

Worst place to work
Loan Review Specialist (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ3 August 2018
Management is unprofessional & openly gossip about other employees. If you’re looking to grow within the company don’t expect that here. Expect things to change everyday & to be held accountable for anything you don’t IMMEDIATELY adjust to. Your schedule can change & they won’t even give you a 24 hour notice, but a beginning of your shift notice. If you don’t hit your goals you will be fired as quick as 4 weeks. The director walks around eating hot cheetos and on his phone & as he’s doing this he stands behind agents computers watching them work. So unprofessional and don’t expect your supervisor to ever be present for questions or help on escalated calls, they only have 10 meetings a day. This place is quite pleasant. I will NEVER refer anyone to work here. Save yourselves from this nightmare of a start up. Everyone here is unhappy, not even their expensive happy hours (that no one goes to) can win their employees.
Pros
Free snacks & drinks
Cons
Management and everything else that’s keeps this “business” running

Lending Club party and your not invited
IT Specialist (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ25 November 2017
The shadiest guys in the industry are at it again. I wonder how long this one will last or how long they'll be there. Just remember as an employee you're lucky to be able to work around them, because that will be part of your compensation package.
Pros
Snacks and downtown location
Cons
under paid, over worked, not able to use "unlimite PTO", and no ability for career growth unless you're a previous Lending Club employee
