Featured Review

Current Employee - Loan Processor

I have been working at NVR full-time for more than a year

Pros

Higher salary than any other local businesses. Great training and opportunities for advancement. Great office environment (I know this is highly location specific but my office is incredible.) I look... forward to going to work every single day. Sick time is flexible and compassionately handled, as is medical leave. The company is hugely focused on retention and even if you struggle, will work on improvements instead of dropping the axe. The collaborative coaching process replacing dreaded performance reviews has been fantastic. Work life balance is respected even though the job can be intense at times.

Cons

Monthly pay is absolutely inhumane. I know most people have two income households but for those of us who don’t have a spouse as an equal earner, it can be brutal. I am not overly impressed with the... health plan offered - the monthly expense and out of pocket costs are a strain. I personally wish there were more local growth opportunities to strive towards as a loan processor other than an eventual upgrade to loan officer - underwriting, closing, etc. are all centralized out of state. Obviously not a problem if you’re able to relocate but I feel like years down the line my options will be limited locally.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work. The continual focus on employee training and retention are encouraging and show that NVR really cares about employee happiness and growth well beyond the lip service most... companies pay to these concepts.
