Pros

Catered lunches on Mondays, always casual dress, flexible hours, free vending machine, free refrigerator (full of fresh fruit, veggies, cheeses, and drinks), free soda fountain, free massage every other week, very youthful workplace, so many great company activities and outings, very philanthropic company, overall really fun place to work. I'd say only Google has us beat as far as taking care of employees (but we're continually improving).

Cons

Parking is a nightmare, some of the positions seem really underpaid compared to other departments, and sometimes you can get pulled to another team to help them out with busy projects.

Advice to Management

Spend some time doing all the jobs in your department. Sometimes it can be hard to quantify productivity just because there are all kinds of unpredictable situations that arise from what may seem like an easy task. Policies and procedures need to be flexible because they usually only work in theory.

    Pros

    There is something to be said for coming in to work in a t-shirt and shorts, grabbing a free juice and free pop tarts, sitting down at your desk, and being trusted to get your work done. People may sit behind cubicle walls, but they might as well not be there. Just a wonderful happy feel-good place to work.

    Cons

    If you're in development/IT the department is somewhat marginalized and isn't really respected the way it should be. Though it is a Mortgage Company and not a Silicon Valley startup, the IT/Development staff is often forgotten about or mentioned as an after thought.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and acknowledge that the development and IT staff keep the business afloat just as much as the loan officers do. Happy developers means a better product.
