    Company not honest with its employees

    Post- Closing Analyst (Former Employee) Irving, TX

    ProsGood healthcare benefits.
    Was able to work on a schedule that suited me

    ConsManagement reluctant to promote from within.
    You can have a degree and work below your experience level
    Company was bought out, but management was not honest about organizational changes

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more honest about what job really entails and be open to promote from within especially for people whose skills sets have outgrown the job function.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Join if you are badly in need of job and no one is hiring you

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMay be some cool people. don't really have good experiences to share

    Cons- Very bad senior and mid level management.
    - Most of the managers and above are joke on the title and don't know anything about the management
    - very small company with bad and a lot of politics
    - company has no culture even companies with bad cultures have some culture
    - its a fund from loan star who buys trouble companies and sell them after making them profitable.
    - check how many CEOs have the company changed in last 4 years and you would understand the picture
    - you would hear few names very often and most of them can't even get job anywhere else

    Advice to Senior ManagementFirst and foremost, get some education, then learn to manage and understand the realities that most of the people work for you only because they need a job

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Do Not Waste Your Career At Caliber Funding

    Irving, TX (Current Employee) Irving, TX

    Prosnone at from what we see.

    ConsThe company is bad on so many levels. Leadership can not be trusted at this place. Most everyone I speak with daily agrees that they will say anything to get what they want.

    The company is not fun. The down economy is the only reason I am still here.

    Leadership will lie to your face and talk about you behind your back quickly and expect you to trust them the next time around. If I only had finished my schooling or my degree and had any other options I would not work for Caliber Funding.

    Do not work for aliber Funding please it is an awful experience and waste of my career move and would be a waste of your career too. Caliber Funding is not a place a successful person or any person with good sense in the industry to work.

    STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!!!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Irving, TX

    ProsNothing positive - stay away from this company by all means!!!

    ConsBad management thus high turnover rate. Also, unethical management who lie, mislead, and mistreat workers verbally. Investigation should be led by outside agency to uncover the filth and unscrupulous, and illegal acts management is a part of scheming up. Minorities are marginalized and paid less than white co-workers for the same work. Not a great place to work at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire current management and hire smart, proven, successful, visionary leaders of all races and experiences.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible place to work!! Need to get out ASAP

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Irving, TX

    ProsBenefits are pretty good compare to others

    ConsWork hours are crazy, 55 - 60 hours week, they expect people to have no life. Managers are in it for themselves you are just a stepping stool, if you want a career, this is not the place! Horrible!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lost, no purpose and no direction - lots of high dollar execs though

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsGood HR and Benefits. Great to have a rich parent company.

    ConsNo leadership and direction. Hedge fund company casulty ... Horrible culture and poor product and comp plan options. If your here, then your lost and you don't know your way to a better option.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSit down and find out what you want to be and then invite people to trust their careers with you. Just simple curteousy. And, it means your now a mature adult when you do things like that.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very frustrating experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Tucson, AZ

    ProsWith so many dead and struggling mortgage companies, someone is bound to fill the gap. With the money behind this company, they have as good a chance as anyone.

    ConsSeem to be stuck in old modes of doing business and won't listen to suggestions about how the market has changed from a consumer's perspective. Everything is run from an internal, metrics driven, non-personalized position. It makes sense from where the accountants sit, sure. But in the end, you are dealing with a sales force that has to convince wary consumers that this new, unknown company has something special and different to offer... and that seems to be lost on management because dealing with the realities of real people instead of just numbers on a spread sheet is not as 'efficient' as possible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people who have experience in the field, and try applying something besides 'black belt metrics' to the equation of how to make things successful.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
