You couldn't have said it better. This review is so true. I am employed at Ally in the Itasca office, and I see everything this review talks about. The only good reviews you will read about Ally is going to be from the youngsters that are getting groomed for their promotions. They absolutely do discriminate against all the people that did not come from SIU or Ferris college. This place is only a fill in job, because you won't be advancing anytime soon.

This is the truth. I too currently work in the Itasca office, and is the most miserable job I have ever encountered. If you are not an SIU grad you are just a warm body to answer phones for them until they can replace you with an SIU grad. You will never receive a compliment, but you will always get criticized. The micromanaging is out of control. The management are constantly watching and recording you even from home when they are not in the office, trying to find something negative to put in your file. If you are an SIU grad, then this job is for you. Anyone else, STAY AWAY because you will not be going anywhere.

I am employed at the Itasca office for 17 years. This company was an ok place to work when GM owned it. Now that Ally owns this company, it went downhill. This review is 100% correct! you will go no where if your not an SIU grad. The only good reviews you will read about the Itasca office will be coming from the SIU kids because they advanced quickly in the company. The micromanaging is the worst you will ever encounter, and you will be criticized all the time. I would recommend to look elsewhere for work.
