    Pros

    There was a strong management team that worked together well. Furthermore, they were all personable and easy to work with, and I enjoyed my time working in the office.

    Cons

    The office was ran in a way that seemed a bit archaic in today's world. Very traditional style with clear lines between management and office workers. No horizontal hierarchy.

  6. Terrible culture - unethical leaders

    Pros

    There is nothing positive about working for Carrington

    Cons

    Terrible company culture and climate -
    Leadership/management only care about lining their pockets. They do not care about the borrows who go to Carrington for new loans or those who's loans they service.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful before - you are going to cross the person or group of people and face the consequences like the Enron execs and other unethical leaders who eventually pay for your actions.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    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.
