I worked at Academy Mortgage full-time (more than an 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 (more than an 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.

    I have been working at Academy Mortgage full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Academy is a smaller mortgage company from Utah. I have worked for them three times, once permanent, and twice as a temporary worker.

    Cons

    None except that when the economy contracts they seem to downsize quickly which is understandable since they are smaller and want to limit their exposure to loss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adam Kessler is great to work for.
