Any dirty laundry at SoFi? A friend is expecting an offer - I'd love to get any insight/advice I can, thanks.

    That company sounds way too optimistic. It'll fail in a year or two

      The company has been around for 7 years with a revenue of half a billion. You’re already wrong.

    Been there 3+ years - it's a great place to work - fast paced, good rewards, people are smart, chill, fun and low drama.

    Record earnings 2nd Quarter 2017, looking to IPO, intense culture, you must be agile. Amazing benefits. Rewarding when you hit goals.

    Is this the same "SoFi" that settled a huge class-action lawsuit a year or so ago for shady business practices around refinancing student loans?? If so, if anyone here gets hired there please, for the love of all things good in this world, hack their snail-junk-mail apparatus and shut it down for good. Those assholes have probably sent me an entire encyclopedia by now, and I never even had an account!

      Yeah, I get a lot of snail mail from them, decided to look into it just out of curiosity and found out they don't even do business in my state. Go figure

      I get tons of mail from them trying to convince me to refinance my student loans. I also got a check for around $150 as a payout from the class action suit.

    I have worked at sofi for two years. Straight forward culture. Business is good. Lots of opportunity.

    It's a great company. Going through some growth pains as they are expanding at all levels. Pay is good, great benefits too. I haven't been there very long, but def no 50 hour work weeks, at least in engineering.

    It's been around for over 3 years and doing really well. Great rounds of funding and backed by decent investors.

    Don't know much about culture or people there.

      Agreed, the company's durability is not a concern, especially with their recent play into Title Insurance and new banking initiatives. Anyone have some insight about the firm internally?

  • Just started this week. The architecture is kinda weird. But so far everybody I've met is pretty chill and the benefits are pretty great. Main issue is that all the modules are built in a silo then integrated. Groups don't seem to have any veto power or input into other modules. Also some stuff is Angular, some is React, some is soring-boot, some is Go, some is Scala.

    I also know a manager that worked there that was just fed up and got up and left without any notice. But I will admit he seems like a bit of a hot head

    I've heard some horror stories about some of the management from about a year ago, from a close friend who worked there. not sure yet if I want to share more.
