Benefits are great but not work, life, balance
RMC (Former Employee) –  Claymont, DEJuly 24, 2017
Company offers great benefits, such as paying for health insurance at 100% and applying money towards your student loans but work, life, balance is not ideal. They are somewhat unorganized due to rapid growth and your schedule is subject to change at any given moment.
Pros
Health coverage, loan compensation, and lunch
Cons
Breaks, phones, flexibility, no balance or flexibility

40 hour weeks EVERY week, most of the time overtime is available, but not yet required. Awesome benefits and free snacks and meals everyday! You'll love it here.

LOAN CLOSER/FUNDER (Former Employee) –  Healdsburg, CAJune 19, 2017
Fast pace, high volume, managers not open to suggestions or willing to be flexible. Unfriendly work environment and gossiping/backstabbing is a day to day occurrence that is encouraged by management

Great benefits and thats it.
Relationship management consultant (Current Employee) –  Cottonwood Heights, UTMay 18, 2017
They lure you in with free food and benefits but do a poor job of teaching you what job they hire you for and then treat you like a second class citizen when you ask a question to clarify your duties.
Pros
free benefits and lunch
Cons
extremely poor management

Don't bother
anonymous. (Current Employee) –  Helena, MTMay 13, 2017
Seems great at first, but the training for what they want of people is more sink or swim, than an actual training program.
Here, do this, no real help from supervisor to technical directors, and trying to talk to them is like a brick wall unless its not about work.
Handful of people were great however.

They've fired people for essentially nothing however.
They fired a few people for just reasons and handful of coach-able and fixable skills. Those who make the job easier are usually dumped on it seems.

I would suggest skipping this company.
Pros
decent pay, free food, gym membership.
Cons
very cut throat, not much help, useless management, HR is lackluster at best.

No Experience Needed
Consumer Loan Reviewer (Current Employee) –  Healdsburg, CAApril 30, 2017
Some of the positive aspects of the company include great benefits, catered meals, and tuition reimbursement. Usually overtime is unlimited as well which can be nice. Unfortunately it is a call center environment and might not be for everyone as it can be stressful at times. They say college degree preferred, but only about one in five people actually have a degree there or even experience in the financial sector. In addition the schedules are pretty extreme and include weekends as well as extremely early mornings and working late into the evening. Good first job out of college or perhaps a mid level job for someone with a high school diploma. Extremely fast paced company with lots of change constantly.

SoFi is a great place to work for. It is fast paced and you have to be able to go with the flow when something changes. Great benefits, good pay and people are friendly.

Fun energentic workplace, but know what you are getting into...
Customer Relationship Consultant / Underwriter (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 10, 2016
Great people, good energy. Fun place to work. No advancement opportunity. Company will always hire from outside to fill positions. Positions are not advertised to current employees. The few advancements that were given to employees in my position while I was employed there were not given to the best and brightest, but rather to those that helped build a safety cocoon around the manager giving the promotion. No information sharing across departments, palpable level of paranoia and secrecy exhibited from one department to another. Depending on your role, you might end up feeling as though you are working in a sweatshop. Just take it for what it is, a good resume builder, good pay, and fun people. Do what you can and move on, but don't expect to advance your career in any way at this company.
Pros
Free meals, great co-workers, high energy, never bored, lots to do, good pay
Cons
micromanaged down to the minute, no advancement opportunity, lack of information sharing, no work life balance, never can do enough
