Former Employee - Accounting Department in Sandy, UT

I worked at Academy Mortgage full-time for more than a year

Pros

Positive work environment. Friendly co-workers. Banker's holidays. Family-friendly atmosphere. Great location, easy commute.

Cons

Have grown so big, so quickly that longtime loyal employees are being displaced. Mid and Upper level Management seems out of touch with employees. They hire from outside instead of promoting from within. A "boy's club" Almost ALL upper management is male.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give employees more room to shine, give them more opportunities to learn and grow so they will stay long-term!

    I worked at Academy Mortgage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nothing besides great vacation for Top Producers, but then fire them for no reason.

    Cons

    They will wine & dine you to start new branch, thinking you will profit. Deceptive in all areas, They fire Top Producers stating it's "with cause" so they don't have to pay you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bad decision to hire new Regional. I suggest you review proper protocol for changing Loan Officer information after termination before disclosing/closing loans in a former employee's name and license # Went on for up to 6+ months. Sending initial disclosures out and forging LO's signature on their previous originated files is mortgage fraud! And refusing to pay LO any income on their loans.

    Academy Mortgage does not comment on former employee complaints. Academy’s 1700 current employees find Academy Mortgage to be a great place to work and be successful.

    I worked at Academy Mortgage full-time

    Pros

    Good environment to work in. People are nice to you, not all though. The company is growing rapidly.

    Cons

    Due to the rapid growth of the company they hire too many people to satisfy their needs and when they don't have use of you they lay you off talking about budget cut. I will see this is a seasonal company because during peak time more people are hired and towards the end of the year they lay people off just like that without even a day notice, not a good thing if you want a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's ok to lay people off but at least give them a week or two to find something else rather than laying them off without any notice. I don't know how you and your family will survive if this happened to you.
