One of the worst companies in finance

Assistant Vice President (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at Countrywide Financial

ProsThe fact that you get paid regardles of whether you do a good job.

ConsThis is one of the most nepotistic companies I've seen. People advance here by sleeping with people in power. There is no reward for going above and beyond. Instead, the firm prefers to institute a culture of fear and scare people into performing their jobs for low cost. The corporate bureaucracy wastes money and ties the hands of line managers. Many senior managers throughout the organization only care about their own pocketbooks and are therefore disingenuous with their communications. It could be due to incompetence, but that's equally pathetic.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop chasing money and pay attention to the bloated infrastructure you've allowed to develop.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

The worst company I've ever worked for

Senior Payroll Specialist (Former Employee)
Pasadena, CA

I worked at Countrywide Financial


Pros: None that I can think of. Cons: Everything! Management thinks of themselves. Promise you the moon to get the job done, then the promises are quickly forgotten. Worked 60… Advice to Senior Management: Take some classes on Management Skills. Even the H/R… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
