    I have been working at Academy Mortgage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The team that I work with directly is awesome. The field that I support with my work is appreciative. The work-life balance is fantastic. Family-first definitely describes how Academy treats their employees. The on-site gym is a fantastic perk!

    Cons

    None. Seriously, I can't think of any. Still thinking... I got nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you!

    Pros

    Operations support and systems is extremely effective. Closing loans within 21 days is a reality with Academy. Good people.

    Cons

    Rates are competitive, but have much room for improvement.

    Continue to address the areas to cutback and provide efficiencies to allow us the ability to competition price without the branch having to absorb a significant loss when competing with local lenders.

    Pros

    I've had nothing but excellent service since joining Academy Mortgage. Brooke Anderson (Regional Business Development Manager) has been amazing and on top of recruiting for my market.
