    Pros

    Oak is full of ambitious employees, from top to bottom, that live in a culture of change in the industry as well as giving back to the less fortunate. Leadership has a clear and concise message and outlines how to effectively reach those goals. Co-workers carry out projects and goals as a team in an atmosphere of selflessness. Oak’s environment of team work, selflessness and ambitious change makes it a place that you are excited to go to everyday.

    Cons

    A company with an ambitious growth plan must work with several departments and third party services to achieve success.

    Pros

    The culture of oak is magnetic. Leadership never settles and holds high vision. They value quality both for the company and for their clients. We have fun outings and incentives! As the company continues to grow there are training's and meetings that follow to support the vision. Everyone is willing to partner in reaching the goals and vision of Oak Mortgage Group both in the US and across the world through Oak for the Oppressed.

    Cons

    We are consistently growing and it's hard to keep clear and constant communication. There is a learning curve and growing pains to be had for any business.

    Pros

    There are several things about the Oak Mortgage Group that I find very positive. There is a breadth of experience among the Senior Executives (Origination, Processing/Underwriting, Builder Operations, Strategic Marketing, etc..). The Company has a lot of energy and a passion for continuous improvement. I am looking forward to the opportunity to participate in the growth of the Company.

    Cons

    My role is new to the Company and the Leadership Team is working to roll out the new programs and operations procedures.

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate the updates from the Senior Executives about the strategic plans for the Company. Keep up the good work on the operations development and alignment between the Dallas, Waco, and Austin Teams..

    I like being in an environment where the plan is to disrupt and challenge the status quo. I want to be around the best, most talented, passionate people there are in my field. Oak has all of these - I'm proud to be a part.

    Cons

    We need a bigger ping pong table! More parties!

    Pros

    I enjoy the culture of Oak Mortgage Group and have never worked in a place where I've felt like my job made a difference outside of the workplace until I started working here. I feel like I work in a team environment. Leadership is supporting and forward thinking. Compensation is only limited by oneself.

    Cons

    The industry we work in can be a high stress environment but Oak puts processes into place to try to help with any opportunities!

    Pros

    There are a lot of pros to working with Oak Mortgage that you don't see at other companies. As a loan officer I believe their compensation package is among the best in the industry, along with their support and willing to help you grow in not only your professional life, but all areas of life. Its very easy to get caught up in your daily work life and look up and realize you aren't really helping humanity. I love working at Oak because they are always focused on others, how can we help the customer have a better experience, how can we contribute more to those in Abject Poverty, etc. Seeing where we can come from in the year and half I have been here I could not be more excited on where this company is headed!

    Cons

    There aren't really, you always have your occasional miscommunication or industry related problems, but what I like best is usually any problem that arises it is addressed quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep changing the game! The mortgage industry is know for being slow adapters and not being open to change. The more we can be trend setters and not followers the more we can make a difference in this industry.

    Pros

    I have been here for 3 years now, when I came on it was at the request of my best friend and CEO, Holden Thomas. I was concerned it would ruin the friendship but was intrigued with the idea of growing and working in the industry. I can tell you it hasn't all been roses, but man I have grown so much personally, financially and in friendship with others. You will be pushed for excellence, challenged to change, and invited to impact the world around you. I love Oak, its my family.

    Cons

    You will be pushed for excellence. Like a mouse who's cheese is moved, will you really be ok with this? I am an entrepreneur and used to running my show. The sales manager and awesome training have pushed me in areas I needed. Come if you want the push. I guess that is a "con"

    Advice to Management

    Keep going!
