    Pros

    Company provides growth opportunities from entry level mortgage positions to origination underwriters. Great compensation and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can feel like management is asleep at the wheel, but what do I know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please respect your people like your core values state. I understand if you lose a contract that means lost jobs, but downsize in a dignified manner.

    I enjoyed working at the company, management was good, they have a flexible schedule that you can come in and work.

    There is a lot of pressure to produce at certain levels, the company has to meet goals each month in order for company to continue getting business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more training for employees.

    Pros

    only pro is that I had a job and gained more experience in my field.

    Cons

    HR provided wrong info pertaining to bonus and compensation. Management was aloof, didn't know what they were doing. Very down your throat, micromanaged like a sweatshop in a foreign country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Under promise and over deliver.

    I worked at Digital Risk full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work and fair pay. Comfortable environment free of micromanaging. You can get up and take a break when you feel the need to. The learning curve isn't that high and I feel that co-workers are very good people to talk to. Minimal knowledge of mortgage industry as long as you can enter data correctly into a database and follow directions. They do potlucks usually once a month, which is very pleasant.

    Cons

    Like the title says, the work is very unstable due to a difficult market to maintain a steady workflow. People always bash the company because of the perpetual layoffs, but when you are "in the red" you are "in the red". Just the nature of the beast. Forensics is definitely not the place to be. I was unhappy with the uncertainty of maintaining my job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency would be very nice.

    My experience at Digital Risk was mostly positive.

    Former Employee - Underwriter in Maitland, FL
    Former Employee - Underwriter in Maitland, FL

    I worked at Digital Risk full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My coworkers were great people, and most of the manager were, too. I was hired at a competitive salary and was paid on time, every time. The office location was convenient. I was able to transition from the forensics side of the business to the front end side before all the lay offs.

    Cons

    While I was hired at a competitive salary, the pay increases were seldom and minimal. It was discouraging when newly hired underwriters were paid the same or more than a Lead who had been there for a number of years.

    I have been working at Digital Risk full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, great people, good opportunity for growth while there is business. Management values those who work hard and go the extra mile. I have received a lot of pay raises and promotions in a short amount of time. Due to constant changes in structure, work is never boring, and it is a good challenge for those who like to learn.

    Cons

    Business has been unstable for a while, it's heartbreaking to see people hired and fired on regular basis. Benefits are not the greatest, insurance is expensive and there's no matching 401k.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully management reads the comments and understands that the majority of employees don't feel there is truth and transparency lately. During the layoffs of the past year employees were often left in the dark. There is always a shadow of uncertainty and anxiety, which is hard to live with on a day to day basis. Everyone understands the volatility of our business, but hiring people just to fire them in a few weeks is never right.
