    I have been working at Urban Lending Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work environment, fantastic associates, steadily evolving: management, employee culture; adequate benefits; amazing health club membership available!

    Cons

    Employee flexibility needed to thrive here; ability to change direction as industry dictates. Salary a bit low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personally, I've watched this company grow for five years and know firsthand how management planned for future expansion, diversification and diminishing core client projects that would phase out due to government programs. It's been educational to see their vision unfold. From basically a start up company, ULS grew rapidly to meet client demands, and there wasn't a lot of "nice to haves" that many businesses enjoy, and there were many, many, overtime hours. Management did whatever it took to meet deliverables to the client; who in turn generated even more work as those deliverables were met again and again. ALL levels of associates worked very hard to get the company where it is today, and as it matured, employee culture began to catch up with growth. I feel Management is very aware of all aspects of rapid growth and the price paid by hardworking associates in overtime, time away from families, etc. I only hope they are able to share the wealth in bonus incentives and compensation as in years past. Associates need to keep in mind there are hard decisions to make to run a viable company. Management are people who have to make the best business decisions for the owner and stakeholders. Disgruntled people make loud noises, and many never get to know the Executive team and the why of some of the decisions they make. I know first hand of decisions senior management made that were both hard on them and others, and also of phenomenal support for the associates, both individuals and groups. My only advice would be to share more with the associate base on the wins and new lines of business. Let us know any losses as well. Hold "All Hands" meetings once or twice a year and telecast it to the many monitors hanging from the walls. We want to know when there are new clients or a new LOB and care about the wins and losses.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Urban Lending Solutions.

    Interview Details

    Very brief .. Essentially "checked for a pulse" .. Interviewer had no knowledge of my resume / skill sets. The interviewer was unprepared and appeared to be conducting interview "on the fly" .. I later realized that I was part of a mass hiring & that urban was basically looking to fill chairs & had no real interest in my career and / or professional skills

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was so generic and brief, no "real" questions where asked -   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Non existent - basically "take it or leave it"
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview
