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

Pros

Great compensation as long as your branch preformed but the minute that you fell under the bar, they were breathing down your neck and not actually helping you with a solution.

Cons

Had to work a lot of hours to be successful which means you had to give up a lot. Most the times I was the first in my branch and the last to leave.

    I worked at Countrywide Home Loans full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great way to train and make the candidate feel compelled to work in a very dynamic and fun paced environment filled with incentives.

    Cons

    It was sort of like milking the cow, they used every bit of the employee until the merger with Bank of America kicked in and they got rid of all the bonuses and started laying off employees with higher pay. Sort of like taking the cows to the slaughter house and selling their meat.

    Advice to Management

    All the management left to other companies or lateral moves, just like chickens with her heads off.


  2. "Good work environment, although management was very indifferent in year 2006"

    Pros

    The environment was actually decent as well as had many amenities such as a gym and numerous rest area and cafeterias.

    Cons

    Management paid little to no attention to employee complaints. Management was very indifferent and misleading. Many employees were let off with only a 24 hour notice.

    Advice to Management

    This was back in late 2006, although I chose 2010 because I am not given the option to choose a later year. This review does not apply to the current management.
