  1. Being a loan officer anywhere is tough with all of the paperwork involved and procedures to follow.

    Pros

    We have the best processors, underwriters and closers in the business. they get our loans closed in 30 days. They all can be called when in need and have 'saved the day' to close a deal

    Cons

    we can't do more than 6 loans a month by ourselves and get all that's required done without working 100 hours a week. We need a team just to get the loan to processing let alone close.

    Advice to Management

    a lot of the loan officer paperwork obligation needs to be given to others so we can sell and not worry about the loans closing.

  2. Pretty good

    Pros

    excellent closing and condo departments

    Cons

    poor management up and down the chain. most processors are inefficient. too many overlays. early default and early pay off commission pull-backs. company is designed for top producers. too much growth in too short of time. all marketing burden is placed on the loan officer.

    Advice to Management

    get down in the trenches with your front line sales force to really understand what goes on on a daily basis. vast need for better communications.

  6. Great company but my Supervisor showed impartiality when it comes to advancement and promotion.

    Pros

    There is a balance between work and personal life, great benefits, and offer work schedule flexibility.

    Cons

    They don't promote equal pay for equal work. I know one who receives a big salary doing clerical work with a designation of AVP, just to justify the high salary, not to mention also the regular bonuses she receives. Whereas, some people there like me, who do also clerical job but requires more technical know-how and analysis receives way below of what she receives and no bonuses. Instead of rewarding you because of your hard work and dedication, you'r the first one to be laid off without any warning, and after you ironed out tasks messed up by your co-employees. They try to get more from you without any good thing in return. You try to do the thing you think is right and the best but still they don't appreciate what you've done.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of the welfare and concerns of your employees especially those who give their best with all honesty, integrity and dedication. Your employees who are deserving recognition and respect are your biggest asset in the Company.

    Pros

    I have nothing good to say as of now...

    Cons

    I was placed on the back burner for two months, I was promised every day CTC answers for 3 weeks and never received, my stress level was recorded and BP was high throughout with Wintrust, staff cared nothing for my entire process

    Advice to Management

    Management should really look into hiring staff that are there for buyers first, and to waste time, and energy last. I received minimal feedback/responses from them and it sadden me to of been treated this way.

    Pros

    It seemed like the company was willing to listen to the employees and consider their ideas and opinions on how to better the company as a whole. The benefits aren't that bad and the compensation was above average.

    Cons

    Their network and system software needs a major upgrade. Constantly lagging and crashing. They should provide better training for all employees.

    Advice to Management

    You really shouldn't be getting rid of your best employees.
