    Pros

    Management is hands on with an open door policy where suggestions are appreciated. The LO's here are seasoned and have helped me develop into a better salesperson. The culture in general is a better fit for me and my family.

    Cons

    It's better than the places I have worked for previously. Definitely more of a self-starter position as they do not micro-manage you.

    Pros

    Competitive but friendly work space. Multiple lead sources with mailers, portfolio, etc. Lots of programs and competitive pricing along with a strong comp. plan. The company is mostly marketing in CA so loan amounts are high.

    Cons

    There is always room for improvement.

    I have been working at Activus Home Loans full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Product and pricing options are very competitive and multiple tools available to LO's to retain and grow client base. Activus is best suited to experience LO's rather than those new to the business.

    Cons

    Learning curve for some especially those who have not worked for a Broker previously. Not for the faint-hearted.

    I worked at Activus Home Loans full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Activus was a great company to work for as they treated me fairly and provided me with the tools needed to succeed. The quality and consistency of the marketing and back-end were ideal and provided a stable income. I left to pursue another opportunity for an offer I could not refuse. Unfortunately, this new venture was filled with empty promises and the management team at Activus was nice enough to set a start date for me to come back.

    Cons

    If you work hard and stay consistent at Activus, you will succeed.

    I worked at Activus Home Loans full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I appreciated the constant support from the other Loan Officers and Management team. You get the tools needed to succeed and I did well there. It's a fast paced environment but you're not micromanaged which was refreshing. Good place for veteran LO's who are self-motivated.

    Cons

    I would have stayed with Activus but I was was a presented an offer I could not refuse outside the industry.
