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

    Pros

    Academy Mortgage actually lives up to what they describe in their literature. The corporate ideals are actually lived and achieved everyday. In a world of "spin" and "hype" it is so refreshing to work somewhere truth and morals are lived daily. From the receptionist at the front door to senior management everyone is marching to the same song!

    Cons

    My one and only complaint is that I was not made aware of Academy Mortgage sooner. I spent years dreading going to work each day because I had never found a company where I felt that my work ethic matched that of the company where I was employed.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to become more visible in the marketplace to both borrowers and mortgage professionals.

    Pros

    Fantastic leaders who care. Amazing marketing resources. Underwriting is easy. Closing just happens.

    Cons

    The field could benefit from more exposure to the Executive Level Team, Regional Leadership, and Home Office. The benefits would be difficult to quantify, however, they would be enormous.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring like minded individuals. Keep pushing the bar. Keep inspiring me.

    Pros

    Academy Mortgage has implemented a ton of support channels for it's employees. Whatever type of assistance you need - everything from personal to professional - you can find it here. I can call our Corporate Business Support Department for help navigating Encompass (our LOS), run a scenario by one of our knowledgeable Processors or top-notch, in-house Underwriters, share my accomplishments and set-backs with a fellow co-worker (who are always willing to give me advise if asked), and get other useful business strategies/tools from our Regional, District, and/or Branch Managers. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful; we genuinely care about our teammates and want all to succeed (including our clients and community too). Academy is my family away from family!

    Cons

    I don't feel that there are any Cons at this point.
