    Pros

    Great group of associates and direct management

    Cons

    Continual realignment over the past year

    Advice to Management

    Please calm down and focus on the business, and your employees will get the job done. Communicate changes and challenges internally more quickly - people will make up something if they are not given the facts. We all know the real estate industry is volatile at times, but we can't be team players if the long range goals aren't shared with us.

    Pros

    Great company to network and meet great people most of the employe are good people and hard workers.

    Cons

    Not a lot of communication from upper management information get spread from one associated to another. Training isn't the best you really have to learn your own work arounds.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communication so that there will be more trust and respect between you all and the staff.

    Pros

    The pay is better than some. Lower level management really cares about their employees and the CEO seems to really want to make a good impression. They hold quarterly town halls where they look for honest questions and suggestions.

    Cons

    No reward system. Their top 10 workers were just layer off because they were in the wrong department at the wrong time. Others who had low productivity were transferred to the only department that was not downsized, and there was no real method to who was laid off and who was kept.

    Advice to Management

    Please recognize the ones who are still there who actually like their job and work to keep their quality and production to the standard that is set for them.

    I worked at Wingspan Portfolio full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    We were allowed to obtain a wide variety of mortgage knowledge. Decent compensation. Consistent overtime was a plus

    Cons

    Too many people only there to collect a paycheck and had no interest in bettering themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to make the tough decisions. The business wouldn't be circling the drain if you were willing to remove the incompetent people and insert the people that know their stuff and care about the company

    I worked at Wingspan Portfolio full-time

    Pros

    With significant and rapid growth, 80% of revenue was put in the right place. HR, Training, secure IT, etc. In addition the culture for those outside of management is very supportive and promotes a positive and friendly environment.

    Cons

    The concept of marketing, advertising, or true business development is significantly lacking. Extreme growth created extreme ego's driving current and continued lack of company growth. Currently a frantic scramble for top and bottom line numbers are creating a more hostile and reactive environment overall. In addition, the head of the snake drives the body. Unfortunately there is no true head therefore the body has been either immobile, or moving in several directions simultaneously creating continued friction among senior management and loss of market share.

    Advice to Management

    Ask 10 entrepreneurs and 9.5 will tell you, don't bring friends and family into an organization. The continued failure to understand this dynamic as well as that the industry overall is very different than in 2008 will be detrimental to long term success.

    Pros

    Pay was good, was competitive compared to other companies. Very understanding of time off needed to take care of personal responsibilities.

    Cons

    Healthcare benefits were extremely pricey for a family and the company only worked off contracts that could end in 3 months or less.

    Advice to Management

    Micro Managing is not a good thing for employees and to get more contracts than from a couple of banks. Don't be dishonest to employees about layoffs.
