    Pros

    When I started here, there were many opportunities for growth in a large corporate environment. Unfortunately in 2008 the company decided to close national operations. As a benefit of the operational shut down, management consolidated job functions expanding the functional skills of those still employed.

    Cons

    Local operations are shutting down and few to no opportunities for advancement exist at this point unless relocation is an option.

    Customer centric mortgage process with common sense underwriting. Committed to service with power to fulfill dreams. Sustainable service and results to all stakeholders--customers, community, associates, and shareholders.

    I worked at First Horizon Home Loans

    Pros

    Work life balance is great. Good mentoring, compensation was fair. I also had great people to work with. Not overly competitive.

    Cons

    The model to advance up the chain was not all that advanced. If you were comfortable staying in one place that was great....if not, you struggled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a better model and communicate it better to your employees. Otherwise, keep up the good work. Overall it's a good place to be.

    I worked at First Horizon Home Loans

    Pros

    First Horizon was a great place to work and our local reputation was immense. Their compensations packages were great and My manager was incredibly intelligent in her field.

    Cons

    Jr. Staff were treated very poorly and poorly compensated. Training was not conducted in an efficient, professional or encouraging manner. It was not unheard of to be promoted to a Management position without the proper mentoring, training, or experience, which essentially set one up to fail in the new position. A big let down for things that seemed so promising

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More effective Management training is needed.
