    I worked at Cardinal Financial Company full-time

    Pros

    My manager Beth Rogers was amazing! Hours and benefits are great.

    Cons

    Training for a TA IS NOT thorough. Need an extra week to train, interactive software (practice on fake loans), maybe even have an experienced TA help with training.

    Also, please hold the WHOLE team accountable for things.

    Pros

    Culture - Lots of great people to be around
    Technology - IT is quick in providing technology equipment when needed.

    Cons

    -Work life balance is hard to maintain due to the constant workflow and not enough employees per department.

    -Promotion (vertical growth) hard to move up or impossible to move up unless moving through departments

    -Go in prepared to make a decent negotiation of salary, else risk staying at that level for awhile.

    Advice to Management

    Provide incentives to loyal hard working employees to remain with your department/company.

    Pros

    Amazing proprietary LOS system could be industry changing if they stopped hacking it and left it to the software engineers to code it correctly.

    Cons

    This place is a volcano waiting to erupt. The president and his wife the "Chief Credit Officer" run this company like its a small broker shop. They are not ready to play with the big boys. Unprofessionalism at its finest. Knee jerk risky decision making. They place so many of the employees at risk with these risky decisions to ignore fixing what is broken. Eventually they are going to implode which is going to hurt the wonderful dedicated people that are so blinded by the smoke and mirrors they just don't see it coming. So many things are out of compliance and they just blatantly ignore it. It's like the titanic sinking. It's big so it will take a while, but the bigger they are the harder they fall.

    Advice to Management

    Get someone in charge that isn't a hot head and understands the operations side and risk that comes with this business. Listen to your senior management and SLOW DOWN and think about the RISK. Believe it or not, you're not always right and some of your managers know a heck of a lot more than you. TRUST THEM. Nick Florez (President) and Erica Price (Chief Credit Officer as well as Nick's wife) need to step back and let some more experienced leaders take over before its too late. Working with them is like watching a bunch of ping pong balls bouncing around on an endless loop. It's truly painful. President needs to act more professional and stop belittling and abusing his senior managers , but most of all has to stop having temper tantrums because someone might disagree with him.
