What people are saying about SoFi
4 months ago
It’s almost been a year of job searching with no traction whatsoever. Not sure what I’m doing wrong. 6 years in top tier IB, entirely in Ops. Thought that would be helpful. Looking for Strategy, Ops roles in buy side, tech, consulting, IB, HF….. any referral would really help.JPMorgan Chase Citi Wells Fargo McKinsey & Company Guggenheim Partners BlackRock Blackstone Morgan Stanley Bridgewater Associates, LP SoFi Adobe Google Microsoft Square

Salary & free medical is fabulous
Instead of 401k match, we get the equivalent as a salary bumpSoFi Response3w

Strong team, manager, and execution focus. Accessible functional risk leadership that care. Great problem solvers that balance between growth, controls, and risk oversight.
Tons and tons to do! Limited risk resources but a commitment from leadership to increase in near term. Lack of Engineering support for most key projects. Need greater investment in people and foundatitonal tools to be successful long term.SoFi Response2w

The company has a stated goal of having the best culture in the world. I don’t think it has been achieved (yet) but I can confidently say that this is the best company culture I’ve seen. Remote work, unlimited vacation time (I take about 21-28 PTO days per year), great benefits, and a diverse team have made it an incredible working experience. Work life balance is great; I close my laptop at 5pm every day (2pm on most Fridays).
The company is very careful with its headcount, so it is difficult to get more resources and support at times.1SoFi Response2mo

We recognize the importance of taking the time you need to recharge so you can bring your best self to work and are glad you're experiencing the work/life balance here. We hear you about headcount, and one of our top priorities is to scale people, processes, and technologies which we believe will help ensure our teams continue to have the support they need!
