    Pros

    The job itself was not bad. Answering phone calls, fixing affiliates and non affiliates computer or program issues, etc. Company pays well with decent benefits.

    Cons

    There was a huge lack of communication within management while I was there. My immediate boss would ask me to do one thing, and then her boss would tell me I was not doing my job. The department head at the time was very intimidating and quite honestly, made me want to cry every time I spoke to him. I would never work for that department again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coach your management to be more respectful to those working under you. There is a better way to help coach your staff and train them properly without being condescending. Also, communicate between yourselves before bringing an employee in and discussing advancement opportunities and/or a pay raise. It is very awkward to be in the middle of your conversation.

    Former Employee - Escrow Assistant  in  Modesto, CA
    Former Employee - Escrow Assistant in Modesto, CA

    Pros

    I can't think of one single pro

    Cons

    I was hired in Modesto branch through the temp angency, I was told I would be trained by another power hungry employee whom wasn't doing her job and I was never given that much. 3 weeks later a friend of the upper management, was hired, she didn't have to go through agency, her training started same day, I was fired day after, according to them it was due to overstaffing, even though they had brought the friend in 2 weeks after me, I was the one let go,and we were both hired for the same position, they had no idea how or if she was even going to work out, this had been their plan all along, I was hired an escrow assistant, but really I they only wanted someone to answer phones until the friend could start, I feel this as very unfair and obvious, that tells me they are a company with no Morales or confidence,they don't care if they have hard workers or playmates. I had been rd this company runs in the red for years at a time, I can now believe it and can see why. There is a lot of feelings that hinder them in making good, unbiased decisions, such as jealousy and a thirst for power. I had been recommended to Stewart Title by a very reliable, well known and admired in the industry,employees they are very fortunate to have. She was a previous supervisor of mine for several years at a different company that has since,unfortnately closed. She was very familiar with my skills and work ethics. I have excellent work history, and I am a very hard worker when given the opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn management skills, show some professionalism, run a brush through your hair and wear clothes that fit. Being a friend is not a job qualification. Try following through with what you promise people, very shady practices., Real estate is a very competitive industry, it is hard enough for people to build an honest and valued reputation, in my opinion companies such as this make it near impossible. Try establishing some pride instead of negative popularity, an area you have become very good at. There you are, I found a pro!

    Current Employee - Operations Manager  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Operations Manager in Houston, TX

    Pros

    Large company with lots of divisions to work in.

    Cons

    The level of knowledge of Senior Management is not very impressive, poor morale builders and some processes they set in place are just counter-productive. Company has lots of turnaround and is a very stressful work environment. There is blatant favoritism and this creates an even more uncomfortable work atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve the line level employees that actually do the work that you all commit to the clients. This will give you hands on experience which all of you need to truly know what limitations we have and what can be realistically delivered to our clients instead of unrealistic expectations that set us up for failure. Improve your compensation to be competitive with other companies-merit increases aren't the way to go in today's industry. Loosen up and actually follow the your motto about work/life balance.

    Pros

    They have really honed the practice of telling you what you want to hear.

    Cons

    The family still runs this publically traded company and does not care that they are responsible to the shareholders. They have no problem lying or cheating. They drive share price by keeping compensation low, cutting headcount in the fourth quarter of every year and lying to the board and to the shareholders. They have decided that it is critical to blend both business with their religious convictions. I am an atheist and don't want to hear this in the workplace. They are sued constantly by both their customers as well as their employees. They need to be investigated from the board to the management team and heads need to role. The family remains members of the board of directors and need to be held accountable for their actions-SEC to the EEOC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company to someone who can run it like a business or with any luck you will all go bankrupt and have to sell it to your competition who is taking market share on a regular basis.
