    I have been working at Veterans United Home Loans full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone that works here is very passionate about what they do, who we help and how we can become better personally and as professionals. It's more than the simple perks (Monday lunch, massages, laid back environment), but the ability to work in an environment that fosters open communication, honesty and integrity. And at the end of the day, the executive team measure success beyond profits, but in how we impact our clients and community.

    Cons

    The primary con is the number of offices spread throughout the city HQ in Columbia. I believe we're up to eight now, which is not a terrible thing, but can become difficult at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on our clients through our partnerships fostered by the Veterans United Foundation. It's great to make a positive impact in the lives of these men and women.

    I have been working at Veterans United Home Loans as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not your typical internship. You actually work hands on with the online marketing of this innovative company. Perfect for the creative type that tend to work best when given tasks with little guidelines or instructions. Overall a very beneficial experience. This is the type of company you would be lucky to land a job at if you are interested in online marketing.

    Cons

    The length of the internship feels too short. Just as you are beginning to really get a grasp of your assigned marketing teams' role, you realize you only have a couple weeks left.

    I have been working at Veterans United Home Loans full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pretty much everything. Great work environment, great coworkers. This is a great place to work if you want to give back to the community as well with the Veterans United Foundation raising over $1 million each year to give back to military causes.

    Cons

    Not many cons at all. I really can't even think of one worth putting on here.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more about the long term. I wish I had more access to projections and plans for the future. I love the emails we get from the CEO, owners, and other exec board members but we should up the frequency.

    I have been working at Veterans United Home Loans full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    VUHL does amazing things for employees to make them both happy and more productive (free lunch, massages, etc) but makes them really stand out is the bottom line is not a dollar sign. The true bottom line is the lives touched.

    Cons

    Getting specific feedback about direction and goals can be a little difficult at times.

    Advice to Management

    Never lose the laid back spirit for corporate buzzwords and policies.

    I have been working at Veterans United Home Loans full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been blown away with the overall awesomeness of Veterans United. The people who work here are energetic, motivated, fun, hard-working, and welcoming. Everyone is happy and excited to be a part of such an amazing and growing company. They are passionate about their jobs and helping people. The values of the company are not just writing on the wall, but a company culture that is visible in everything done here. On top of that, the benefits and perks are something I only imagined was possible in my job: free lunches, free massages, fun outings, free healthy (and unhealthy) food and drinks, Nerf gun wars, contests, prizes, games, family get-togethers, lunch & learns...all of which cause you to be surrounded by happy and productive employees. I'm excited to see where my career here takes me.

    Cons

    If you cannot have fun at work while being productive this isn't the company for you. Work hard, play hard. It's not the normal mortgage company or any company for that matter--it's a fun and dynamic culture. Change is very normal around here with the expansion of the company so if you don't like change you might reconsider working here.

    I have been working at Veterans United Home Loans as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall a great company to work for! I love the people, management, and owners. VU takes their values very seriously, and it permeates into all aspects of the organization. They also treat their interns very well! I get paid $12/hour to do what I love... online marketing. I would recommend this company to anyone.

    Cons

    If you work in the marketing department, you spend a lot of time in front of the computer.

    Pros

    The energy in this place is incredible. The management here is all about going after new ideas and trying new things. There is always something new to try, something new to work on. The "go get em" attitude is infectious and makes you want to do more, learn more, try harder and excel. The management and employees are dedicated to giving back to the community. It's not just lip service here. It's the real deal. The Foundation we started is an example of that. It's not like any other company I have ever worked at. I'd highly recommend this as a place to work for anyone.

    Cons

    The growth has been hard to stay on top of. More management experience for new managers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on getting better, not just growing. Invest in good people and continue to give back to the community. Giving back is at the heart of the culture here and I am glad to see this comes from the owners of the company.

    Pros

    The people are this company's greatest asset. Everyone is so great to work with, not just because they are nice people, but because they are all so smart and passionate about their role in the company. It's a very cool thing to be a part of, and haven't seen any work environment quite like this. There are lots of other perks too - casual dress, great events, free food (vending machine and fresh food fridge), faith forums, etc.

    Cons

    The company is growing very quickly, and there are growing pains that go along with it. Sometimes we are understaffed in certain departments, or there is so much going on that changes aren't always communicated to everyone as timely as they should be. Changes are constant at VAMC, but I guess that also helps us stay ahead of the competition!

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to work on communication - I can tell you've been making more efforts and it's much appreciated! It's fun to know all the things that VAMC is up to, even if it doesn't specifically relate to my department.

    Pros

    The company values are amazing. Be passionate and have fun. Deliver results with integrity. Enhance Lives every day. We come to work every day excited to work hard and serve our clients. It is remarkable to work for a company that is so well-rounded. This company is full of high performers. The people that make up the VAMC team are energetic, fun, smart and caring. The company values are truly lived out on a daily basis. One of the most exciting things about working for VAMC is the community involvement. VAMC gives back in so many ways and makes it easy and exciting for employees to get involved whether it is volunteering at the Food Bank, running in a 5K fundraiser or getting involved with United Way. I am so proud of this company and of my co-workers. We strive for excellence in the work we do for our clients by providing amazing customer service, but we also make each other better people every day.

    Cons

    There is a lot of change and growth with this company so it’s really important to be adaptable. It’s really exciting to be a part of company history as we continue to reach new milestones.

    Advice to Management

    Great job! Continue to live out the values. Continue to invest in the team and listen to feedback and ideas.
