    Pros

    I recently started at GR and instantly felt welcome and part of the team. My new coworkers went out of their way to make themselves available to help and answer any questions I had. They even organized a happy hour on my first day so I could meet the entire team.

    There is a team oriented feel around here and it seems everyone is willing to jump in on any project to help out. There seems to be a lot of opportunity to take on projects that you are interested in and to grow with the company.

    Coming from the sports industry, I was a little concerned that working for a mortgage company would be boring. GR really makes what could be a boring industry/company trendy and cool. They seem to be at the forefront of the industry and are constantly creating new technology to stay ahead of the times.

    The employee/company culture is a top priority for the CEO which is a welcome change from my last company. There are monthly events for employees, volunteer opportunities, free massages, access to the company gym and rooftop with a view of the city. Getting to and from work is easy as it is steps from a brown line stop.

    Cons

    If you are driving, parking can sometimes be tough.
