Good family environment, but a lot of uncertainty

Vice President (Current Employee)
Santa Ana, CA

ProsGood retirement benefits like 401(k) and ESPP, a lot of "HR" type programs and medical benefits. Management seems very progressive now in the face of a changing real estate market.

ConsA lot of uncertainty around jobs. Everyone walks around waiting for the other shoe to drop. Decisions on who stays and who gets laid off are sometimes illogical.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees are your strongest asset, from the lowest examiner to middle management. It's no secret that the highest executives are getting tremendous RSU and other bonus type packages while lower level employees are getting very little if anything.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
