    I worked at Standard Pacific (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some excellent colleagues. Been in the industry for awhile and more than 90% of loan officers and processors are great to work with.

    Company events at nearby Hilton to encourage professional growth and camaraderie.

    Knowledgeable management in all things lending related, at least in underwriting.

    Arizona staff always friendly and available for questions. None are ever too busy for questions.

    VP has shown that she does respond positively to employee feedback done in an ‘anonymous’ employee engagement format. Her heart is in the right place and I saw improvements during every interaction. Also, she uses any underwriting fails as an opportunity to coach all she leads. There is no blame, only opportunity to teach everyone else not to make the same mistake.

    Cons

    Management lives in an echo chamber.

    Examples of managerial impotence: Ability to work from home flexibility due to illness / illness of children / appointments revoked for entire team because of several who repeatedly abused the privilege, time card fraud, inconsistent standards for productivity and professionalism between employees, not communicating the same information to all team members (before the ability to work from was revoked, everyone got to work from home July 3rd, except for one who specifically asked if that would be the case before leaving on Friday June 30th and was told no. After that person left for the day, senior management sent out notice that everyone could in fact work from home on July 3rd. This wasn’t communicated to the employee who had asked before leaving for the day on Friday, and showed up on July 3rd to find themselves the only individual within that job function at the office. There was never an apology from management), company outing not communicated to entire team.

    When management approached regarding inconsistent standards/expectations between employees, you have placed a target on your back and will be managed out the door no matter how productive or efficient you are.

    ‘Working lunches’ without pay should align with Labor Department requirements since they are mandatory.

    Advice to Management

    You have plenty of real issues that require remedy, don’t manufacture reasons to antagonize good workers.

    Don't get angry when trust and respect aren't given to you. Try this old fashioned thing called earning it. I truly think the majority of managers are nice people. Your methods for course correction are counter intuitive and ineffective. All levels of management would benefit from extensive leadership courses and training. Don’t take it personally when someone is honest with you, that’s part of management.
