    Pros

    Flexible schedules, work at home available, good benefits, great people.

    With the gov't changes to the student loan industry it can be a bit unknown what's going to happen next or where things are going. There's been a lot of turnover lately since Nelnet bought GLHEC.

    Pros

    Good people, most mean well. Good benefits and decent pay. Relaxed dress code.

    Cons

    Schizophrenic. They LOVE you and all of their employees - until they dont. As said in other reviews, they are a federal contractor so they jump no matter what DoE says. They do go through massive layoffs when you are no longer economically feasible.
