    I have been working at American Financial Resources full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is the first mortgage company I have ever worked for that focused on bringing families home instead of numbers. I feel that we are a team on a mission not just an individual pushing paper.

    Cons

    I would recommend some additional communication from management to keep the staff in the "know"

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend some additional team building activities outside of work to allow us to gather outside of work and grow our relationships.

    I have been working at American Financial Resources full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been working at American Financial Resources full-time for several years and enjoy how the owners of the company do a lot of work and they understand rolling up their sleeves and jumping in. AFR is a family orientated company and understand the value of leveraging technology, training and balance of work life. The ability to work from home for some positions is a huge advantage and helps keep the balance...

    Cons

    Not really too many cons for AFR, the mortgage industry is a fast paced, always changing environment with peaks and valleys. We all know the roller coaster ride the mortgage industry can be. This can be stressful from time to time and when you blink it changes again.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your team and invest in them, they will continue the journey and the vision that came together 20+ years ago.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at American Financial Resources full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of promises and dreams. Promises promises broken dreams. Nothing positive to share. Sad. Apparently you insist on 20 positive words

    Cons

    Uses 2 different names to recruit because of reviews. Pipe dreams offered. No future to their vision. Poor work atmosphere. Bully Mgr in one Dept. Watch what you say there are “ Moles” looking to advance. The worse Company I’ve worked for. I’m looking as are others to get out. Poor pay for Industry.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people fairly. Look at the source of your problem and get both sides. Pay Bette to keep your employee. Listen to us
