I have been working at Waypoint Homes full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Some good experiences working in an interesting field, employees are nice. My manager was one of the few that seemed like he actually cared about his employees.

Cons

Pay was really bad, about half of what it should have been which is why I didn't stay very long. They try to make up for this by giving 'perks' of a $10 gift card to employee of the week.

Everything is a fire drill, late night/weekend emails that expect to be answered immediately. Stressful, worrying about constant lay-offs.

Huge divide between management and employees. Stingy with holidays/PTO. There was one instance where we were told in advance we had a holiday off (Memorial Day, Columbus day, can't remember) and the Friday before at like 3pm, everyone is emailed by the CEO that we no longer have the day off, as it's not really considered a holiday. People had to cancel trips/plans as some couldn't afford to take the day off.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper mgmt talk a good game, saying they want to help employees grow, listen to their needs, they should try following through with it. Invest in your employees, put your money where your mouth is.

    Pros

    The benefits are good and the ease of access is good. the team I work with is comprised of great and capable people

    Cons

    The management structure doesn't communicate, the employees are often over qualified and under paid. the product/service they offer is subpar and their focus is on the investor, not their client

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get out while you can because I will be doing the same

    I worked at Waypoint Homes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    seniority, had first choice with PTO.

    Cons

    Two pay cuts within one calendar year. Management completely sexist, will not promote women who are qualified. Management inconsistent. Constant round of lay offs due to "consolidation". Received demeaning abuse from direct manager (took one year of HR complaints for him to finally be fired). In constant fear of being laid off. Employees completely undervalued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be fair and consistent will ALL employees (women) in the company.
