I have been working at Core Digital Media full-time (More than 5 years)
It's a great group of people - smart, fun and who really care about you as a person.
The culture rewards not just getting things done but doing so in a way that encourages collaboration and being respectful of others. Leadership has done a good job through the entire pandemic of trying to take care of the team, and the hybrid return to work policy seems like it will be a very good and flexible solution.
We operate pretty autonomously from the parent Rocket Companies in Detroit, and so as 180 people mostly in LA we aren't too big an organization and can set and change priorities as we need to so we're able to get things done without things becoming bureaucratic. And even though the business did very well last year, it never felt like there would ever be rocky time because we are part of this much larger organization. I like that we're staying in our office b/c it's a great location and am looking forward to getting back there for the good (although not over the top) perks there.
I can honestly say that in the grand scheme of things, there aren't a ton of cons. Yes, the benefits seem like they got worse when we moved to Detroit's programs. Yes, senior leadership needs to be more diverse so we all have someone who looks like us that we can look up to. But both have been mentioned by management as something they're working on - again, we'll see though...
Advice to Management
You wait too long to kill initiatives that aren't working. I know there's a history of some stuff that may not have gotten enough of an opportunity to be successful, but we're in a competitive space and sometimes you need to be more willing to cut bait - especially if it's a pet project of some of the "favored" middle management.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Core Digital Media (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2020.
(Applied/interviewed remotely due to COVID) Started with a recruiter screen, then a Zoom interview with two members of the team, and then an "on-site" Zoom interview. This consisted of a written test, four back to back 30 minute interviews with the last one being a technical and creative assessment. All of the people I talked with were SUPER friendly, I was nervous at first but everyone was really easy to talk to and very supportive throughout the process. The turn around was also really fast, the recruiter Sara was really helpful and responsive which was a big plus. Overall the process was quite thorough but also enjoyable - the people are genuinely really nice so it was pretty fun for me.
