My experience was very positive. I worked with a great team and had a great boss. Also, the pay was very good. If there was a negative, it would have to be the political culture in recent years.
Sr. Software Engineer in Indianapolis, IN
on July 19, 2022
My time with SMB was enjoyable. Very cohesive work team, and very accommodating with work/life balance. At times, there seemed to be a lack of direction on some projects, requiring "crunch-time" changes that could be avoided with better intra-team communication and planning. But all in all, a great place to work.

I enjoy working for Sallie Mae. The pay and PTO are good. The health insurance could be a bit better. I’ve had good advancement, but know others that have not.

Some co-workers are not nice. Most co-workers are good people. Management often does not support you. Seems that you need to work over-time in order to meet goals.
