    I worked at CMG Financial full-time

    Pros

    Company prefers to hire less during times of need. This typically translates to laying off less in hard times (in the mortgage industry, this is great news as it creates a more stable atmosphere). This company has also had some great low level managers and enhancement opportunities do exist if you work for them. It has been a pleasure to work with, despite a constantly shifting atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay Raises and Performance Reviews do not happen - as such, only a promotion or being truly invaluable and complaining about pay will get a pay raise. Nepotism is rather rampant. I do get a "two face" feel from upper management, however and upper management has significant priority and understanding issues with certain departments.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the little people more, there are needs that are not being addressed. Also, do performance reviews. It helps to make employees better through creating professional and worth-while incentives; especially if you apply related pay-raises.
