I have been working at Essent Guaranty full-time (More than 3 years)
Professional people- peers and managers. Quality of personnel hired is amazing. excellent salary and benefits. State of art equipment, software and office space. truly happy employees are paid for performance and have managerial support. benefits include stock options, company paid 401k and bonuses both quarterly and annually. some employees work from home and can tele-commute if necessary.
corporate office has a strict dress code to maintain level of professionalism.
Advice to Management
Consider promoting from within to maintain high level of employee felt ownership. Company is growing extremely fast and some of the small company feel is diminishing. Recommend allowing employees access to company store to encourage esprit de corps and show Essent pride.
