    I have been working at Cornerstone Home Lending full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    At CHL you always have opportunity to learn more, take on more responsibility and learn. But they also offer great mentoring and team building. They are always willing to help each team member succeed.

    Cons

    It isn't a 9-5 kind of job, but what you are doing for your clients is helping them make their dreams a reality, so sometimes you have to put in a few extra hours. It's all work it in the end though!

    Advice to Management

    Maybe a little more access to trainings, hands on learning.

    Pros

    Cornerstone is all about Customer service, that offers a good experience through a timely and efficient closing for our clients. As an employee, it's about, TEAM, support, encouragement, work/life balance and opportunity. It's amazing!

    Cons

    The only downside I feel as an Team Member, is that I haven't had the opportunity to personally meet each and every fabulous person that I have had the pleasure to work with through a transaction. I wish we had an annual reunion of some sort. Even being a remote employee, it's never like being out of sight, out of mind.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!!! You seem to always be looking for better, more efficient ways to do things and include the entire team as some of your visions become something that can be implemented. You always make work feel like home. The most amazing part is you leave it open for suggestions if any team member might have an idea to improve part of our process, or even if an issue were to ever arise, you are willing to discuss it openly and try to find a solution. This, to me, is what makes us all part of this Company's success. That is a wonderful feeling.

    Pros

    This company has survived all the market downturns, maybe senior management can see the future?
    The underwriter's have a lot of trust and autonomy placed on them.
    Underwriting is separate from the branch, unlike most retail situations however we still need to build rapport (and reputation) with our assigned branch and our loan officers through excellent service.
    There are many resources available for the use of processors, underwriters, loan officers, and branch management. UWs also have a lead advisory team, who guide and correct us and handle all 2nd level reviews. They are excellent. And they have a stash of information about loan scenarios that they willingly share.

    Cons

    Been sitting here for a good 5 minutes thinking on it but I don't have any. The health care could be better but that's really not the companies fault.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you Marc & Julie for being ethical and forward thinking leaders.

    Pros

    All companies have mission and vision statements, however many fall short and do not uphold these statements. Cornerstone Home Lending is a company that practices their mission and vision statements through their actions consistently. Marc and Judy have done a phenomenal job at creating an ethical culture where everyone uses their God given talents to make a difference in the lives of others. Honesty and Integrity are a integral part of CHL. You are also equipped with resources and knowledge to help serve your families. State of the art training, in-house processing and underwriting are all at your fingertips. Cornerstone Home Lending is one big family, you are provided and supported with everything you need to serve your families and partners and create a positive experience for them. My personal favorite pro is the positive energy I take home at the end of the day and get to share with my family and friends. CHL has not only helped me grow professionally but personally too!

    Cons
