    I worked at Fairway Independent Mortgage full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people start out really nice. Until they don't need you anymore. Great work/life balance because OT is not allowed. Taking off or working from home is encouraged. A good chunk of employees work three or four day work weeks.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no sense of urgency at this company from the top down. Everyone is here to do the bare minimum. Loan Officers are 100% untrained and must learn on the fly which leads to EXTREME turnover. Horrendous management across the board. Managers have zero back bone and prefer to avoid conflict. Favoritism runs rampant here. You cannot, and will not ever move up if you aren't a "certain" type of person. Take...

    Advice to Management

    None. It's clear that Fairway prefers the culture to look and feel a certain way so any advice given will be thrown in the garbage. Good luck cracking the top 10 in anything.

    I worked at Fairway Independent Mortgage full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Resources abound, pay sales very well

    Cons

    Politics. Grew too fast. demand too much from corporate and not enough from sales. Unkept promises. Lacking experienced management. Quick to judge

    Advice to Management

    Trust the right people, more. Focus on quality of growth instead of just the luster of it. Defend your core values (all of them) better and don't break promises. Be consistent in how you promote and evaluate job expectations and delivery more closely.
