    I have been working at Box Home Loans full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I love working at box home loans! Everyone I work with is a team player and willing to go the extra mile to help out. At work I feel challenged and trusted with new responsibilities. I like the high energy and high production. The management is very considerate and easy to work with and there to help me set and reach personal and work goals. I feel happy and fulfilled as a specialist

    Cons

    It is very busy and sometimes I feel like I'm not able to accomplish my workload in a full day of work.

    I have been working at Box Home Loans full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It is a very friendly work environment where everyone is focused on helping each other progress and succeed. They hire from within and help you understand you are doing and how you pay an important role in the loan process. When you don’t understand there are plenty of people around who are more than willing to help you out, and then don’t make you feel stupid. It is a job where you actually feel like you are accomplishing...

    Cons

    There can be some stress but nothing that isn’t manageable.

    Pros

    Flexibility of Schedule. The People...but the majority of the good ones are now gone.

    Cons

    Box Home Loan's is the definition of insanity -- Doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result. Hire, train, "lay-off", repeat. Hire, train, "lay-off", repeat. They have an out-of-the ordinary business model for the Mortgage Industry that allows them to hold a big advantage....but knowing this, they should have better business-smarts. Clear communication is stressed to all employees, but is never...

    I have been working at Box Home Loans full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Upside to working there is a 9-5 schedule Monday through Friday, and paid holidays (other than that within the last year or so they took about half the holidays away. ) I felt the only upside to working there was the people that worked there. Most of them come to feel like family.

    Cons

    You always have to watch your back because as soon as the market dips at all you'll start seeing closed door meetings. Once you see those beware of layoffs. It's never just one round of layoffs no matter how much they promise you it is there will be a second maybe even a third round. Management isn't very understanding and likes to play the blame game. Whenever something goes wrong they try to blame everyone else. Typically...

    Advice to Management

    Don't roll your eyes when questions are asked. Realize you have more knowledge than your employees and share that knowledge in a positive manner. Consider open communication with your employees and don't blind side people with layoffs. Yearly reviews to go over progress and consider raises.

    Pros

    The people are awesome here at Box Home Loans. Although mortgages are serious business, the people at Box make it fun and enjoyable here at work. Tons of room to progress. We are growing like CRAZY. All the managers are actual "people" and are very friendly and approachable. Everyone is willing to help each other out. This place is almost devoid of politics which is unheard of in the industry.

    Cons

    Sometimes people don't fill up the plastic spoon container when they use the last one ...

    Keep it up.
