I have been working at Nationstar Mortgage full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Good breeding ground if you're fresh out of college and need a job
- Fairly friendly staff, maybe encounter one or two snooty managers
- Extra activities (employee perks day, holiday parties, blood drives, toy drives, push-ups for veterans, jean days, intramural sports, etc.)
- Employee discounts (phone bills, gym memberships, amusements parks, etc.)

Cons

- Lots of favoritism
- Slow or favoritism-based promotions
- Low pay (But money is money, especially if you have bills to pay)
- Unorganization: Equipment, employees, and locations are randomly placed around the building/area.
- Layoffs, especially within the past year, hundreds or thousands are let go on any given day
- Outsourcing and the painful process that comes along with it when you're trying to communicate with reps in India
- Micromanaging departments, especially Claims and anything on the phones
- Lots of dead-end employees that don't really care about their jobs, so you might have to do it for them

Basically, if you're down to the wire and you receive an offer, take it. Do your work diligently, efficiently, and timely. Learn from everyone and everything, look for opportunities to grow. Stay positive and don't complain (even if your job sucks). Be courteous and respectful to everyone (even if they suck). With this, you'll gain the attention you need to move up. And once you've gained all that you want/need, leave for better pay.

Advice to Management

Instead of seeing your good employees go because you can't pay them enough, consider letting your dead-end employees go and use the monies you were gonna pay them towards keeping your good employees.

    I have been working at Nationstar Mortgage full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wealth of knowledge in locations outside of headquarters. Decent pay but inconsistent. My employees range from less than $12/hr to $20 with no rhyme or reason.

    Cons

    Communication. All companies struggle with it. Nationstar is a great example of what not to do. They have upper management that makes decisions without the facts or analysis of impact. No communication on middle management down. Appear sneaky in there layoff and growing offshore decisions. Make management of people impossible from a first line leader level.

    Advice to Management

    Quit. This company has resources and capability to lead the industry. But the senior leaders are clueless on how to get us there. Concerned about investors more than employees and homeowners. Scottsbluff, St Louis and Denver had there best most knowledgeable employees and the is where they decide to make cuts?
