    Pros

    If your homeless, its winter-time and you live in a cold climate. If unable to get government assistance than I would recommend you try getting a job at countrywide.

    Cons

    Countrywide does not pay a living wage and has nothing but contempted for it employees, who get treated even worse than the customers.

    I have been working at Countrywide Financial

    Pros

    CW pays better than its competitors. You can expect to get paid in average about 5,000 more than other companies. Depends on what department you work for, it could be very intense but you get what paid for working hard.

    Cons

    lack of communication between management and employee. Management like to keep what's going on under the carpet and wont discuss with employee until it's exposed on the news.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communicate more with employee. create a mentorship for to help employee grow
