    I have been working at Academy Mortgage full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I absolutely love the positive energy and the positive vision the executive leaders at Academy have. I’m all about radiating and really focusing on what you want to manifest it, and the CEO at Academy has had virtual town hall meetings about the current crisis that’s are full of positivity and hope for the future, not only as an employee at Academy but also personal growth and outlook in life. I worked at another mortgage company for 5 years were departments were just rude between each other, specially post closing since no one likes a QC Analyst. I would even cry sometimes at how stressful and mean management was, I think mostly since I was so young they would treat me this way. However for 5 years at Academy everyone is super friendly, even senior management is nice to me when I’m delivering bad news sometimes. I’ve never seen management wanting their team members to succeed and actually provide them with the tools to do so. I think being appreciated has kept me motivated to keep working towards my career goals. Simply being able to provide for my family during this crisis makes me extremely grateful to be here right NOW, at this moment. I’m so blessed for this opportunity Academy has granted me. I love my job!

    Cons

    None, nada, nessuna ( I have to enter 5 words)

    Pros

    You know when you work for those companies where you do NOT want to get up and go to work? This is not one of those companies! I love working for Academy! Why? Because of the people and the work that is being done to put people in homes, and delivering their dreams. The supervisors and managers give you the tools to do your job efficiently. Not to mention the flexibility there is. The people are great to work with. This is why I enjoy getting up and working for such a great company.

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons.

    I have been working at Academy Mortgage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great open door policies with my manager and my manager above. They care about me, my interests, my family and my well being. They have my back and I would go to war for either of them. I love and care for the Team I manage as well. They are an amazing, strong, confident and compassionate group of individuals. We are a family away from family.

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursement. Academy needs to invest in their employees seeking continued or additional education.
