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

Pros

Cobalt's owners and management have created a sense of community and family. Doors are always open. Cobalt values their employees, like they value their customers. The Cobalt brand, name and employees are active in the community and participate in local events and charities. It truly is a great company to work for.

Cons

Since 2010, they have experienced rapid growth and expansion. Although they have experienced some growing pains, they have worked to implement and improve processes and have continued to thank and praise all of their employees for their work and dedication.

    Pros

    Local company. Lots of loan programs and focus on customer service. Good company if you are a sales person.

    Cons

    Unsatisfactory working conditions with culture of skipping lunch and breaks to fit in and appear dedicated. People are overworked, but overtime is not approved and frowned on if submitted. Mediocre benefits, culture of anything goes for sales and everyone else gets much less in salary, conditions and recognition. Too much favoritism. Many people hired are relatives of managers or other employees and that creates a big increase in usual workplace politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do the right thing for all of your workers, not just the sales people. . A lot of dissatisfaction among other workers. Pay attention to more than looking good from the outside. The culture and values the company promotes to the public are not followed for employees and more will leave as the job market improves.
