    Pros

    The dedication and caring that Academy has towards their employees is above all others. They seek out talent and then help that talent grow and prosper. I truly feel like it is one big family. I have been here 9 years and have moved positions multiple times. Each position I learn and grow both as an individual and in my career. The amount of time and effort our leadership puts into each employees growth is over the top.

    Cons

    I have none to report

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I love that leadership has been traveling to the Field and visiting with everyone. It makes us stronger!

    Pros

    The top layer of management truly cares about their employees. We offer an extensive list of loan products. I have never seen a mortgage company with so many marketing tools!

    Cons

    The past management structure may not have been as effective as they thought but I feel the new leadership team has already started to make changes in the right direction.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Warning! This company is addicted to layoffs, even for those who were doing a great job and for whom there was no warning. Most companies manage their business to avoid devastating peoples lives. This company either doesn't have the ethical foundation or doesn't know how to manage its business. Rounds of layoffs happen over and over.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that a layoff should be very rare, and shouldn't be necessary except when there are ethical or performance issues. You shouldn't use it as the Easy Button. Your mission may be to build dreams, but you're actually creating chaos in many lives.

    I have been working at Academy Mortgage full-time

    Pros

    Every single one of my coworkers I've come in contact with is really friendly, across the country. I love how positive, humble and goal oriented management is, which helps me keep focused on my goals & maintain a positive attitude. I like that they make a difference not only in our lives (employees) but also everyone they have helped around the world. My Family & friends keep asking me to find them a job here.

    Cons

    No Cons, I actually don't mind waking up to come to work haha

    Typical Mortgage Company. Managers and producers take priority and small fish and newbies don’t get the same benefits
