    Pros

    Free vending machine Birthday celebrations monthly Weekly company meetings to keep you informed with the company’s to-do.

    Cons

    I hope the layoffs have stopped and employees are given a chance to shine. I left with such low confidence and self worth in my professional offerings, only to be so appreciated and understood at the next place(s) I have worked. Don’t make it a popularity contest.

    Pros

    They have amazing PTO benefits Plenty of opportunity for Growth in your career if you manage to stay The CEOS make a strong effort to appear a regular "human" to their employees, making them more approachable.

    Cons

    New departments are constantly being created and layed off. They are constantly hiring but do not make an effort to place all of the workers in a new position if their department is disolved. Generally, the only people who keep their jobs in those situations are family/friends of a higher up, not necessarily who is most qualified. There is very little job security. Managers facilitate and participate in drama. (Ex. A very nice girl, great worker, never missed a day and was never even late, got fired because the office pet of the head of that department did not like her. The same "pet" made a comment saying "one down, two to go" when the victim's desk was cleared. She was never reprimanded for saying such a comment. The victim fought and won unemployment.) They do not seem to think through their layoffs, either. (Ex. They let go the compliance assistants that oversaw the mailing of Loan Estimates, then acted surprised when the other employees couldn't pick up the slack and the LEs were falling out of compliance.) They are extremely unorganized when it comes to "moving" employees around their two buildings. you could be placed in one office, just to be moved to another in a week. The most ridiculous aspect of it is that some employees of the servicing department are forced to walk to and from the buildings near constantly, regardless of weather, in order to preform their daily job duties. They all could very easily be moved to the other building, however, the department that planned these things was let go.

    Pros

    They pay bonus under the table - deliver cash via UPS

    Cons

    Worst technology ever. Management cant make a decision and stick to it. Policies changed 3 to 7 times a year and sometimes in a span of a few months or week They rewrite guidelines, but incorrectly. Always on the clean up vs prevention Their idea of the market changing is progressing from industry standard circa 1999 to 2015. Take this job only if you are desperate! Career killer.

    They really want to do the right thing and want what’s best for their employees! Open door policy with the managers, always know where you stand with your performance, free vending, good pto, and culture.

    Sometimes I didn’t feel like it was a very professional environment, but it was pretty nice to have a laid back culture.
