    I have been working at W.J. Bradley Mortgage Capital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for W.J. Bradley for a while, and I would not consider leaving. The management staff has been very supportive of my career and the career of my co-workers. I have learned a lot, and have been given opportunity after opportunity to develop my skill set and develop myself into a more valuable mortgage professional. If you act like a professional and want to be treated like one and pushed to expand your limits, this is a great place for you. If you want to punch a clock and complain, WJB is not the place for you.

    Cons

    The Company is great but the mortgage industry is constantly changing, so if you don't like risk or change you won't like the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at W.J. Bradley Mortgage Capital

    Pros

    - Zero mortgage experience required
    - Zero business experience required
    - Extremely vet friendly
    - Powerful Think Tank gets things done
    - Job security (for my team)
    - People keep their opinions to themselves (as it should be)
    - Life Work balance is perfect - early departures are not frowned upon
    - The list is truly endless

    Cons

    As the review title suggest, this truly is the perfect job. Anyone who hints otherwise is off message and should re-evaluate their job prospects. There is no room in this organization for your negativity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. Eventually everyone else will get it...

    I have been working at W.J. Bradley Mortgage Capital full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Leadership listens to the employees and seeks to address their questions and concerns through newly introduced Town Hall meetings. The company is always striving to improve things like product offering, technology, and marketing. Compensation and work life balance are really good. Many of the people are really kind and friendly.

    Cons

    Some employees seem to gossip more than at previous companies I've worked at. Some departments don't respond quickly to internal emails from other departments which can be frustrating when projects are held up as a result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage more collaboration and cooperation between departments. Continue to strive to be transparent and address employee questions and concerns.

    Pros

    WJB is making huge changes to the way they do business. It's all about making it so the LOs can close more loans and take better care of the borrower at the same time. We've got good products, good pricing, and top-notch service. There's also open and frequent dialogue with the branch leaders, with full tracking and commitment to meet their needs. The atmosphere at the corporate level is one of real innovation, supported by a powerful think-tank (the "CAG") that provides direct support to the CEO. If you need something, it'll get done.

    Cons

    Every company expands and contracts in relation to the market. You've got to have realistic expectations.

    Drive on!

    WJB has a great environment and company culture. The salaries and benefits are competitive for the Denver area. This is a rare company where the leadership actually cares about employees. Coworkers are very friendly and helpful and the work is meaningful.

    Cons

    The mortgage industry is cyclical and it affects all companies. Fortunately WJB handles the cycle well, due to strong leadership.

    I have been working at W.J. Bradley Mortgage Capital full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people and the leadership make the difference. I feel a strong sense of fellowship with my co-workers and direction from my direct supervisors. Mr. Bradley is a strong personality who will motivate you to want to be more. The culture is competitive but I can always count on my co-workers to provide help when I get bogged down. Leadership always expects the best from you, the goals are lofty and innovation is rewarded.

    Cons

    It can be hard to meet the expectations form the leadership for innovation and creativity. Often I find myself working on the weekend attempting to solve complex problems. Work-life balance can be difficult to maintain because the pace is relentless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time communicating with those of us lower on the corporate ladder, provide more insight on the mission so we are all working for the same goal.

    Pros

    Incredibly entrepreneurial. Zero micromanagement. The CEO's honesty, transparency, ethics, loyalty and burning fire to win each and every day drive us all to succeed both individually and for the team. We are blessed to work with some of the most talented executives, originators, operational and support personnel in the business. Even in the leanest of times, WJB invests heavily in infrastructure, technology, relationships, acquisitions and top tier talent. If you are career minded and driven to succeed as a member of an exceptional team look no further.

    Cons

    If you do not possess some or all of these traits: maturity, passion, intelligence, loyalty and drive; then WJB is not the right place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.
