I have been working at Cobalt Mortgage full-time

Pros

Local company. Lots of loan programs and focus on customer service. Good company if you are a sales person.

Cons

Unsatisfactory working conditions with culture of skipping lunch and breaks to fit in and appear dedicated. People are overworked, but overtime is not approved and frowned on if submitted. Mediocre benefits, culture of anything goes for sales and everyone else gets much less in salary, conditions and recognition. Too much favoritism. Many people hired are relatives of managers or other employees and that creates a big increase in usual workplace politics.

Advice to Management

Do the right thing for all of your workers, not just the sales people. . A lot of dissatisfaction among other workers. Pay attention to more than looking good from the outside. The culture and values the company promotes to the public are not followed for employees and more will leave as the job market improves.
