    Pros

    Large company with many different perspectives and varying degrees of talent and skill to learn from.

    Cons

    Those in cushy positions are sometimes impossible to deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Politics is inevitable in any environment. However some of this should be monitored and the skill-experience-compensation relationship should be baselined to make sure those with valuable skills are compensated accordingly.

    Pros

    Good pay compared to peers and responsibilities in other mortgage banks. Varied opportunities to try different careers in the organization.

    Cons

    Basically, a cowboy culture combined with nepotism. Long hours, no work/life balance once you moved pass VP title.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the corporate culture and start living the values it is supposed to represent.
