    I have been working at CMG Financial full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to work tough files and hone skill of getting a loan approved. It's an income source.

    Cons

    No annual review nor salary adjustments. Management displays gross disparity to employees, if you are not a personal friend or family member, not much potential for growth opportunities. Company location is sub-par as building needs updates, no cafeteria or deli nor vending machine and distance to restaurants eat up lunch break.

    I worked at CMG Financial full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Ability to work from home

    Cons

    Nepotism and favoritism are the flavors of the day. Zero support from management as they are too busy covering their rears. Managers lacking in experience and don't have basic management 101 training. Employees' personal business is shared by Managers with other employees. Training and advancement opportunities are extended to family members first. Do not believe promises made at hiring- they won't happen....

    I have been working at CMG Financial full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Health and dental insurance and some pto

    Cons

    No direction. No planning when there is downtime (meanwhile other companies are busy). We just sit idle. A couple of the managers are terrible at communication.

    Advice to Management

    What do you say to managers whose kids work there and get special treatment and a ton of work (as others sit idle) just to bonus. True story Get a clue maybe?

    I worked at CMG Financial full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Was able to work remotely from my home office. That's about all I have to say. I did work with some awesome people. Excluding the management staff

    Cons

    If your not part of the CMG "click" you most likely won't get a promotion or move up with the company

    Advice to Management

    Conduct annual reviews for your employees who bust their butts to make the company what it is.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere amongst trench workers. Benefits are Great! Sometimes weekly potlucks

    Cons

    Mis-management. No Reviews. No raises. too much nepotism. zero accountability.

    Advice to Management

    come up with a self review system that involves setting goals, keeping track of the goals, and having real-time training to be able to perform job function correctly. Working here for so many years/months and not one review nor raise is disheartening and overwhelmingly spirit-crushing. Taking suggestions from the workforce seriously. The mangement could learn a great deal from the employees if the employees didn't have...

    Pros

    Advancement and pay. Benefits okay. Leadership has high ideals and says all the right stuff.

    Cons

    Daily stress level about an 8 sometimes a 10 (1 lowest 10 highest). 3 top level management left within 6 months and replacements were not same caliber. Scottsdale Fulfillment Center hired a branch manager to replace Branch Manager that moved on. Currently (as May 2014) replacement Branch Mngr no longer at CMG. Underwriters crying and over worked and under trained. Can't reach bonus if you are not doing FHA streamlines...
