I worked at Countrywide Financial

Pros

great advancement opportunites and compensation, very collegial workforce, a number of long term employees, pride in the company, growing fast

Cons

very fast paced, never enough staff to do the work needed, seems as if all communications, programs etc were focused on the LCD (i.e. lowest common denominator) employees, short cubicle walls

    I worked at Countrywide Financial

    Pros

    Most people were good people which made the environment nicer. The salary and benefits were in line with similar jobs both in the banking industry and outside.

    Cons

    Lack of direction by upper internal audit management. Huge disparity between groups within internal audit from everything to quality of deliverables to time off. The department was very top heavy with lots of elevated titles for people who were doing administrative tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe if all internal audit groups were held to the same standard, some of the things that caused the collapse may have been uncovered sooner.

    I worked at Countrywide Financial

    Pros

    Met some nice co-workers that I've remained friends with.

    Cons

    Worked Holidays and never received doubletime. We were paid hourly. Management would tell you you could take a day off another time to make up for the extra day. It was a payroll nightmare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only people that made money here were people in top management; otherwise, you are used for the most part.
