    I worked at Red Capital Group

    Pros

    Great Office at Miranova, Good reputation, decent training programs, flexible hours, one of the best FHA lenders in the nation.

    Cons

    Orix is a terrible parent company and took a lot away from the "Red" culture. High turnover with Senior Management. Below market compensation for many positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow the company beyond FHA lending.

    I worked at Red Capital Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Original Red employees (pre-ORIX) are inclusive, knowledgeable and hard working.

    Cons

    ORIX has implanted its "hard money lender" culture and forced out a lot of the good folks who helped build the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell while there is still some value remaining.

    Former Employee - Asset Manager

    I worked at Red Capital Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I thought I got along with the coworkers, and most were really nice, but they turn on you in a heartbeat.

    Cons

    CFO and CEO are clueless, as are lower management. Middle management is ok

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the nepotism.

  6.

    I worked at Red Capital Group full-time

    Pros

    *Strong emphasis on training
    *Fast advancement opportunities
    *Entrepreneurial culture
    *Accessibility of mid-senior management
    *Good incentive based compensation

    Cons

    When times were busy, the focus was productivity at the expense of all else. It was not possible to have a normal life while working during the boom times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Given the focus on productivity and incentive pay, I think management could dramatically reduce burnout by structuring required vacation time.
