    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    The best thing about VAMortgageCenter.com is the people. Everyone I've worked with has been very friendly, intelligent, and passionate about their work. On the surface it might seem really casual and relaxed, but on closer inspection, people are hard at work here giving it their best. There's a real sense of teamwork and loyalty to each other that I've never seen anywhere else. The career opportunities, the fun company events, the very intense spirit giving back to the community - it all adds up to a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    I have nothing to complain about. Something people looking to work here should keep in mind though is the hiring standards are very high, so it's not easy to get a job here. The job is also very challenging. This isn't the kind of place where you can just turn your brain off, you always have to be thinking and learning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, and don't lose sight of what made us great. Continue investing in great people and letting them take charge.

    -Challenging, exciting work
    -Above average to great compensation
    -Laid back, but extremely productive work environment
    -Laid back dress code (I've worked at other jobs where I had to wear shirt/tie...this is MUCH better)
    -Excellent company culture
    -Exceptional managers
    -Located in a really great, mid-sized town - Columbia, Missouri

    Cons

    -Some of the jobs can be stressful, however, those jobs are properly compensated in my opinion

    Advice to Management

    Guys, I feel blessed to be on the VAMC Train and excited to see what the future holds. Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    I have worked at two very big companies and neither of them come anywhere close to what VAMortgageCenter.com has in regards to company values and culture. The focus here is not all about the bottom line. It is about Enhancing the Lives of others. Our goal is to have a positive impact on the lives of our clients, vendors, family, friends, co-workers, and community. That is a refreshing quality for any place of work. VAMC hires people that are in line with the company values. That means that from the first day you walk through the door you have something in common with just about everyone. It is truly a family atmosphere and I couldn't ask to be employed by a better organization!

    Cons

    Parking is the biggest issue. We are growing exponentially and our poor parking lot can't contain us. Getting into a building and a lot that can eventually hold all of us would only strengthen the already stellar culture.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Your willingness to embrace change and forward thinking are what keeps this place fresh and fun. Thank you for making this THE place to work!
