    I have been working at Cornerstone Home Lending (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working for Cornerstone for just over a year and so far it has been a pleasant experience. I have worked in a couple different departments and appreciate the opportunity to be exposed to different areas of the company. It is good to know there are other opportunities are available to me. When one area is slow, there's always another moving at a more challenging pace. It gives me the opportunity to reveal my ability to be flexible. I appreciate that the leaders of the company are not afraid to give God the Glory for the company's success and ability to weather the tough storms that come and go. May God continue to shower his best blessings upon Cornerstone Home Lending, Inc.

    Cons

    Thankfully, I have not been exposed to anything that I feel would be worth reporting.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to allow God to guide your steps, your tongue and your actions. The cornerstone has been placed, together may we continue to build from it.

    Pros

    Everyone is working towards the same goal. It really feels like it is a team effort on every loan I work on. The borrowers are a priority and treated with the upmost respect. It’s always a great day in the mortgage business working here. They have created an amazing culture. Constantly updating products and training on all things new. Love my job here and love the support I get from top to bottom.

    Cons

    If there are any I have yet to notice.

    Advice to Management

    What you have done works. Constantly reinvesting in the culture of the company and keeping everyone on their toes.

    Pros

    I truly believe this has been the best company I have worked for. The camaraderie with my coworkers is great! I did not come from a mortgage background but was given and the support and tools necessary to excel in this field.

    I have been with the company for two years now and look forward to many more. My supervisors have gone above and beyond assisting with my success.

    Cons

    The mortgage world can be stressful but that is just par for any other mortgage company.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the direction we are going is great.

    I have been working at Cornerstone Home Lending full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a Database Administrator I have worked for multiple companies for last 16 years . Because of the nature of my profession, my tasks has dependencies to other team members and support from the management. This dependency is critical to my success and providing high level of service. At the Cornerstone Home Lending, I work with the best team of professionals and above that great support from not only my manager, but all other managers in the company. My work and result of my work means a lot to me and I feel very fulfilled an positive. The environment is laidback, and yet very active to complete tasks on hand. All these has made a positive impact to the quality of my life. I am blessed to be part of the Cornerstone company for six years and looking forward for many more years.

    Cons

    Sometimes decisions are made in a slower pace. I have full confidence in the management, but sometimes it can make a better result when timing is considered.

    Advice to Management

    Our business provides services to several hundreds of families everyday to buy their home. This is a important service for growth of our economy at national level. My only advice is, the company grows faster so it can provide this service to a larger population.

    I have been working at Cornerstone Home Lending full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the company now for about 6 years and I still love it! The company as a whole is a great place to work and connect with some great people. They really put great emphasis on the employees work-life balance. Thru personal challenges, I have been able to work from home as needed, which has been a godsend for me. I truly feel that upper management really cares about my well-being and that of my family. It's a great environment where your ideas and contributions are recognized.

    Cons

    I would have to really stretch to find something I didn't like about Cornerstone. Things are always evolving in the Mortgage world and so for that we learn to adapt.

    Advice to Management

    My particular job doesn't offer much for vertical growth so, my only advise for management would be to find a way to promote from within for those employees that may want to step out on faith. Someone may not have the experience but with the right attitude, temperament and willingness to learn..they may be a great fit!

    I have been working at Cornerstone Home Lending full-time

    Pros

    As an IT Technologist, what I value the most here is how the company is fully committed to gain further traction via Technology innovations. Furthermore, the owners and the leadership team have established a family culture based on compassion and respect throughout the entire company regardless of your position. The owners have many times demonstrated the latter through series of class act gestures. That level of engagement is more often than not unparalleled.

    Cons

    I wish 401K matching was a bit better or the base pay to cover the differentials.
    No bonus options.
