    good chance at a bonus, good activities, golf tournament, family day activities

    Cons

    a lot of gossip, favoritism, they don't take input or suggestions from hourly employees, 2 ten minute breaks for 8 hours, better keep the potty breaks to a minimum

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give the employees two 15 minute breaks per 8 hour shift.

    I worked at Midland Mortgage Co. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Training. Schedule. Benefits. Location and parking excellent. Clean workspace. Starting pay is generally above average. Very desirable schedule of 8 to 5, Monday through Friday during a standard work week.

    Cons

    Workload. Management. Due to constant change in client base the workload can vary dramatically month to month. No additional staff is brought in for extra workload so it all gets assigned to an already heavy caseload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Additional promotional opportunities needed.

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager  in  Oklahoma City, OK

    I worked at Midland Mortgage Co. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They offer good benefits to their employees, and there are some quality people who work their. They do some good events to help with their employee satisfaction and you have a chance to win Thunder tickets, but only to the games the managers don't want.

    Cons

    They are micromanaged more than I have ever seen a company. My managers treated their employees like they were numbers and then wondered why they had high turnover. If one of my employees or employees in the department made one mistake they could count there chances to progress over with. I on several occasions had to tell some one of my employees that they were using the bathroom too soon in there shift. I disagreed with telling grown adults when they could go to the restroom, but did as I was asked. When they employee could not change his regularity my manager took him off of a stretch assignment he was on and then would not back me up when I had the conversation with the employee.

    He would also offer no constructive feedback. He told myself and other supervisors that we may not hear when we make a mistake, but we will see it on our reviews. We did. He had a spread sheet that he would keep track of instances where an error occurred and then use that to fill in your year end review. He also told me when I came on board that I had too many ideas and needed to keep quite in meetings.

    I have several other examples of why someone should not go work there, but it would be too long for this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would do an employee satisfaction survey that everyone had too take 1 to 2 times a year. Other companies do this and it can help find where areas of opportunity are.

    Pros

    Laid back environment. Supervisors and managers are great. Nice co-workers. Free coffee and water. Wage is pretty decent (little over average) for the city.

    Cons

    Tough customers (over the phone) once in a while. But this is normal in a customer service position anyway.

    Pros

    If you're willing to play the game their way, even if it means doing things that you know are wrong, then you might actually make some good money as long as bust your butt to the point of near death.

    Cons

    Too many to list... And too many to want to think about cause it'll just infuriate me with rage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating people like their human beings, and not some soulless animal that's your property.

    I worked at Midland Mortgage Co. full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits which includes medical, dental, short-term disability, and 401k contribution. Management is a little flexible with schedules for students and employees with kids. Not many layoffs so good job security.

    Cons

    Little room for advancement. Midland mostly hires outside the company for management positions. The pay is low unless you have an upper management position or work in the I.T. department. They are strict with the dress code. Top down leadership which build a gap between managers and their staff. Positions are very redundant and not very challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees more and allow them more opportunities to grow.
