I have been working at Academy Mortgage full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

From my 15+ years' experience in the industry, and employment at numerous other mortgage companies, I can say that Academy is a rarity in the mortgage business. Where other companies talk about doing what is best for the customer, Academy actually lives up to that promise. Academy's management truly cares about the customer, AND the employee.

I just passed my 5-year anniversary, and it was the fastest and most enjoyable 5 years I've experienced in my career. Academy shoots straight down the middle, works to maintain regulatory compliance in every aspect, and doesn't venture into the "grey" areas trying to make an extra buck.

Cons

There are cons to any job. In my opinion, the main shortcomings of Academy are 1) the pay scale is not the highest in the industry; and 2) the insurance premiums aren't the lowest.

For me, the enormous amount of pros make up for the minor differences. Could I earn more elsewhere?...Absolutely. Could I work in an enjoyable environment, and love my job?...Not from my experience. While a few more dollars are nice, being able to sleep with a clear conscious is worth it to me.

Advice to Management

Continue on the path you have laid out, and continue to ensure all departments, job functions, etc. are involved, and genuinely sought out for their experiences, input, and advice.
