Featured Review

Current Employee - Loan Officer

I have been working at PennyMac full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Heavy amount of warm inbound leads every day that come straight from a very large portfolio of current customers. There are so many leads it's almost a problem trying to deal with them all. I have... not made one cold call in my career here. Compensation is strong with most loan officers making well over 6 figures. Top guys can make $200k+/yr. They promote almost exclusively from within the company if you are looking for career advancement.

Cons

Call center environment with heavy focus on metrics. Systems are sluggish and the technology needs some love. Work/life balance can be tough sometimes with long hours.

Current Employee - Loan Advisor

I have been working at Lower full-time for less than a year

Pros

Cons

not many cons to choose from
