    Pros

    Interesting and challenging work, great culture of giving back to the community, good pay and benefits, important function for the US housing market and the economy as a whole.

    Cons

    Some poor performers spoil the culture at times, and not everyone pulls their weight when it comes to meeting goals and deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Remove employees who are poor performers and continue to develop a culture of continual improvement and efficiency.

    Pros

    Benefits and pay are top notch

    Cons

    Too worried about CYA rather than just doing the right thing and moving onto the next thing.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people to make a decision and not feel threatened that they'll be fired. Mistakes are how we grow and learn, embrace them, use them as coaching moments.
