    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    -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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!

    Cons

    I really don't have any bad things to say about the company. Sometimes communication with upper management can be hard, but not bad.

    Pros

    The group of people here are awesome. It is a great team of people who really care about taking care of the customers as well as each other. The company pushes values consistently and are ones that are easy to get behind.

    Cons

    As the company grows, there is trouble keeping up with office space requirements and is resulting in just adding new offices. But being in multiple offices separates people a bit and makes it hard to get to know people in other departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more communication with the employees. The blog posts are helping, but even more would be better.

    Pros

    The people from the owners down sincerely care about treating people the right way, both co-workers and clients. Our values are not simply 'pretty slogans', but mandatory actions that must be fulfilled by each employee. The service we provide is truly beneficial to others. Character counts here. We work and play hard.

    Cons

    With such expediant growth, changes happen quickly, which can make it difficult to keep up with everything that is going on at times. It is definitely a fast-paced environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep rewarding everyone in a fair manner. Continue to make sure pay is balanced based on performance and longevity of employment. Reward those who keep there head down and may not ask for raises etc..

    Keep the company humble, continually recognizing what we do is a privelege to provide a service to our military members. As we grow, avoid the stereotypical corporate downfalls that change in the workplace.

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    I know everyone talks about the casual dress code and the great people that we work around, and. having lunch brought in on Mondays is a nice perk as well. All of these great things about working at the company feed the culture that is The VAMortgagecenter.com. This is a unique facet about the company that a lot of other places, big and small, are not fortunate enough to have. I have been in this business for a long time, and have seen other organizations come and go.. and VAMC has continued to grow in a very difficult market. There is no "one thing" that makes this is great place to be a part of, but I sure try and do my part to contribute to those "one things" everyday.

    Cons

    I work hard, and yes, it sometimes gets a little stressful, and I work some long hours. I do it because I feel a sense of duty to my clients. I don't really think this is a downside as the rewards outweigh the costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No real advice to management, I feel like I can go into any of my superior's offices and have a conversation about any thing that needs to be talked about.. very approachable. I feel like there is a lot of mutual respect.
