    Pros

    Countrywide has a very entrepreneurial culture, with a strong build over buy preference. This is great for information technology resources.

    Cons

    Department practices are very different, need to make sure that the department you work in matches your style of development.

    Advice to Management

    Management should great one culture and not multiple small empires.

    I worked at Countrywide Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    people, atmosphere, pay, and PAY. Some of the smartest and most driven people were my colleagues. I met some of my best friends, made very good money and had a great time while doing it. The company was very professional, yet there was a very team oriented brotherhood.

    Cons

    Long hours, lack of advanced training. Of course there is going to be some bad apples. In every company you work plenty of uneducated, bad employees walk through the doors, but they were weeded out quickly.

    Advice to Management

    The credit crisis of 2008 was a problem not only for this one but for most of the world. I don't think there was much they could have done to mitigate that. Could they have weathered the storm better...yes, but a sale to Bank of America for around 4 Billion wan't terrible. The loss of stock price and equity for many employee's was something that was a hard pill to swallow, but like many other companies during the bubble it could have been worse.
