    I have been working at Auction.com, LLC full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    What I love about Auction.com is that the management team has great ambition. After seeing the changes in the mortgage industry, the failures of other companies that refuse to change or make the difficult decisions, it's nice to be apart of one that does look towards the future and growth of the company and it's survival. Despite the criticism about the company not caring or that your jobs are always at risk, I'd have to say that it happens with all companies, but at least this one cares about the majority of the hard working employees. Holding on to the extra headcounts have been the demise of other large companies. The management team is working towards growing the company, making changes to keep it ahead of the game. The benefits are great, they have a great set of employees with good talent. The CEO/Founders of the company remain engaged, the company is constantly giving swag gifts the employees. The little things are nice.

    I think the company is moving in the right direction. I see lots of complaints about the management team. Recently, I've seen a change in management style, I do see new management with more industry knowledge for their respective areas. I don't think the cons of this company is something other companies are voided of. As with any management, there are questionable ones out there. As for our CEO, considering how they've built up this company from the ground up, they have done a great job in making a name for themselves.

    Cons

    As I said, as with any company, there are questionable management and some great ones. The same goes for this company. If you get a great manager, you will excel and they will promote your growth. Other managers will restrict you and limit your growth. Do your research, ask the right questions during your interview. Some employees are fine with just doing what they are hired for, some are ambitious. If you're the latter, then during the interview, ask what internal growth like is for the area you're applying to. I've seen some employees that have the ambition but not the skill set to grow. Ambition is great, but if you're passed over, then maybe best to find out what you need to work on. Seen quite a bit of change over the past few years, the company is constantly changing. Changing in management, changing in focus, if you want a job that won't throw a few curve balls your way, then this isn't the job for you. You'll be met with many challenges, you'll have to find ways to work around those challenges and be creative. The company still has quite a journey ahead of them before they have all of their ducks aligned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are quite a few bright people working for the company. Good investment in their growth and hiring from within will help boost the moral of those that work for you. Good communication with the staff will also help promote understanding and resistance to change.

    Easy interview. I had a solid background for the role I was being interviewed for and got a response from a SVP within a day. Other steps in the interview were not difficult. Most people I spoke with had little or no knowledge of mortgage banking.
