Pros

Once BofA Purchased (errrr saved) the company, I could pretty much do whatever I wanted too during the transition. Decent manager, but couldn't answer tough questions

Cons

This place was poisen from the time I walked through the door. The only reason why I even accepted was the market was in the tanks and it was the best option at the time. Sr. leadership was a joke made up of diciples of Angelo Mozilo (ie. the Orange Man).

Advice to Management

B of A folks weren't much better, they just have deep enough pockets. My advice, don't think becasue someone is a Black Belt in Six Sigma, they have any clue what they are doing. Some of the biggests fools I've ever met had a black belt.

    Pros

    They pay at high rate compared to others.

    Cons

    There was poor communication with senior leadership They did not follow through on quality There was not a bias for action They did not care about employee retention Countrywide's Benefits are weak relative to others in the industry Senior Leadership needs to back up employee suggestions and fight for them Vacation is low relative to others in the industry

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Use facts to make decisions instead of using your gut Senior Leadership needs to back up employee suggestions and fight for them Senior Leadership needs to focus on employee rentention

    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 Management

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