Pros

Excellent professional environment, great exposure to industry and technology, endless opportunities to learn and grow. Countrywide has a variety of subsidiaries in the financial industry, mostly mortgage - and promotes employees to move and look for opportunties internally. They have excellent framework to promote new ideas, processes - both in technology and business. In the technology side, mostly home built solutions that are cutting edge and ahead of the industry. A great pool of talents, and outstanding team and professional atmosphere.

    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.
