    I worked at Carrington Mortgage Holdings full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company allows it's employees to grow and doesn't keep them down. The IT Department is progressive, fast paced and an exciting place to be. They think out of the box and challenge it's employees to be different and be exceptional. Once you succeed, they reward you for being able to keep up and innovative. Pretty cool place to work!

    Cons

    If working hard is a con...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep challenging your employees. Not everyone will like it, but those who strive to be the best will relish in the opportunities this company provides.

    I have been working at Carrington Mortgage Holdings full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced company with lots of newer technologies. My peers are very knowledgeable in their fields and a collaborative spirit is built into the culture. Management is not afraid to look at new ways of doing things and listens to the staff. On my team, management seems to look internal to job promotion rather than outside of the team as a few team members were promoted this year into larger roles.

    The benefits are great with the exception of lack of a 401k plan. Only company I have worked for which backs up the claim of a bonus. I've received one every year. Management is responsive to my requests for training on new technology. Compensation is a bit above market rate but the bonus really helps.

    Focus on the charitable organization is great! In my experience with the Charitable Foundation, Carrington is very focused on specific charitable causes and pour countless resources into those causes. I've had the pleasure of working with severely wounded combat veterans and feel privileged to have helped them through the Charitable Foundation. It's something I will never forget.

    Cons

    Work load can be very high at times. There are also times where nights and weekend work is expected for bigger, high priority projects (welcome to IT). No 401K at this time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in the talent on the teams. Would like the opportunity to invest in a 401K.

    Pros

    Office culture is relaxed. Supervisory staff is helpful. Willingness to help struggling employees.

    Training is inadequate. Management makes promises they don't keep

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you hire someone on as a temp to perm employee within 3 months, you should follow through or give an explanation as to the changes in business needs.

    Great place to work if you're ambitious and highly motivated.

    I worked at Carrington Mortgage Holdings full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This really is a great place to work, providing you're ambitious and highly motivated. It is not a place for those wishing to coast along and collect an easy paycheck. I worked in IT, and it was an amazing group of talent and teamwork. The CIO runs a very tight department and demands dedication and hard work, but he also gives clear leadership about what is expected and which direction the department is moving. Great opportunity for advancement for those willing to listen, learn and work hard. The CIO really took the time to mentor us, and always had our backs, but he did expect the team to OWN their responsibilities.

    Cons

    Not for the faint of heart. Those who want to "coast along" on the path of least resistance will not do well in the IT department.

    Good pay but they work you like hebrew slaves

    Former Employee - IT Department in Santa Ana, CA
    Former Employee - IT Department in Santa Ana, CA

    I worked at Carrington Mortgage Holdings full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    IT pay is comparable to other employers
    Benefits are decent although they are always raising the costs to emplyees

    Cons

    IT management expects you to give up your weekend with last minute notice on Friday and it's not due to an outage or disaster. They tell you no raises because profits were slim but they build a new Executive office in one of the most expensive places in Southern California and have catered lunches delivered everyday for the execs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lining your pockets and trying treating the people that you rely on to keep the IT infrastructure going 24 by 7. Get rid of your military dictator CIO and bring in a human being.

    Liked the people, we made a great team, thanks to the leadership of an awesome supervisor

    Cons

    slow workload, leading to reduction of staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep Michelle Lee and let her help the other supervisors to learn to lead like she does. She really cares about her team, that's why we were number one.

    I worked at Carrington Mortgage Holdings full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    One of the good things I liked about working here was that every file we worked on was rated & reviewed by QA and we learned from their review on how to decision the file a little bit better.

    Cons

    Some challenges working there was that there was no stability and no benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company should consider offering employees a better hiring package with benefits, stability and better compensation to be able to receive the best from happy employees.
