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.

Cons

Stability due to economic downturn

    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 Management

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