I worked at Irwin Home Equity

Pros

The company is being bought out so the culture has totally changed. Most people are gone or going. It was a good place to be, the people were great overall. Salary left some to be desired, increases have been a joke, benefits were what should be expected. Senior management was approachable and generally easy to talk to. There were some politics within some groups, if you weren't in the right crowd you could easily go unnoticed even if you were stellar. I never saw much negative volatile arguing aside from a couple instances but this was far from the norm.

Cons

The company is being bought out so the culture has totally changed. Most people are gone or going. Salary left some to be desired, increases have been a joke.

    Pros

    Irwin Home Equity is a part of the Irwin Financial Corporation. Irwin has a long tradition of integrity and value. As such Irwin Home Equity subscribes to the same guiding philosophy of fundamentals values and management approach.

    Cons

    Irwin Home Equity is in the mortgage industry and is subject the ebb and flow of interest rates and housing values. Irwin Home Equity has traditionally been a niche lender in the 2nd Mortgage space. With that market largely dried up moving into 1st Mortgages is a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making and living by tough choices is a given. The Senior Management team at Irwin Home Equity has exemplified Irwin's Guiding Philosophy and that character is valuable.

    Pros

    Senior Management was very open to hearing concerns from employees. It helps to make the workplace worker friendly.

    Cons

    Middle management left something to be desired. Advancement was not easy and hard work was not always recognized. Career advancement most likely slowed due to the market conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more aware of the hard work of your people and be more willing to recognize this hard work!
