    Pros

    supportive environment, excellent management, great work/life balance, flexibility, small company feel to a growing business

    Cons

    bonus not available for certain positions

    Advice to Management

    I have worked in this industry for 20 years and I must say that working for Academy has been the most fulfilling experience of my career. I have never felt loyalty to a company the way I do today, nearly 4 years into my employment. Business and customer service are a priority but not at the expense of their employees needs and work/life balance. Low stress and positive reinforcement makes for a very positive work environment. No company is perfect, they all have their issues but this is by far the best company I have ever worked for.

    Pros

    Great Company, great pay. Everyone is nice and we work as a team and not against one another. Feels like a small company on how you are treated,

    Cons

    Trid laws changed production ability so therefor bonuses were cut in half, would be nice if they would recognize the time invested in each loan takes more time and work and adjust the bonus pay.

    Pros

    Academy really works well with new loan officers, offering customized options for salary and commission-based pay, making it easier to get business going without starting full-commission. They also have a fantastic new-hire training program where they prepare you to pass your tests and pay for all your licensing.

    Cons

    The loan software can be slow and inconsistent, frequently crashing.

    I worked at Academy Mortgage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Solid underwriting and processing. They are willing to work with you on complicated files to find a solution.

    Cons

    Horrible management with no idea what they're doing or how to lead their employees. Zero desire to help grow their loan officers' business. You only matter to them if you're a top producer.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone in your leadership department and hire people who care about helping their loan officers succeed.

    Pros

    They give you a lot of time off and that is all! There is nothing else pro about this company

    Cons

    Lay offs lay offs lay offs! All they do is hire crappy loan officers and lay people off! Huge mistake leaving a job to work here to be laid off! They don’t pay for crap either. I’d RUN not walk from this company!!!

    Advice to Management

    I have an idea why don’t you keep the employees that have been loyal and work hard for you and learn how to recruit loan officers that actually know what they are doing...what a joke!!! Compensate the “little” people better!

    Pros

    Bank Holidays and weekends off

    Cons

    EVERYTHING! Management sucks, no growth, always making changes, hired 450 from another company just to lay off 100.

    Advice to Management

    Show up on time! Don't feed lies to people just to get them in.
