I have been working at Cottonwood Financial full-time

Pros

This is a profitable, stable, growing company. They offer above market pay, have a good training program, and a history of promoting high achievers. A lot of the management team started out in different positions and were promoted into their present positions. That is what attracted me to the company. They are very policy and procedure oriented, but are also open to new ideas.

Cons

Medical benefits are a little pricey.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Cottonwood Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Meeting people and building relationships with them was nice. The hours and pay was good as well as the benefits. The work was not hard, just had to follow policy and procedures.

    Cons

    The people that work in operations then get promoted to area managers think they know more then some people that have been there for years. They tell you to do one thing on the phone while they have someone else listening and then tell you something else. They do not help to develop you. There is very high turnover. They will turn a termination paper to HR for approval and then read you a script on Monday, you have no idea what you did wrong and then you call HR to find out why you was let go and they give a generic reason like performance or not following policy and procedure. They like to term when you are about to get bonus money, that way they don't have to pay you the bonus that you earned. The main problem with the company is the CEO of operations.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking that just because you have a degree that you are better then people without a degree. Just because you have a degree does not mean you know how to manage people.
