    Pros

    Start work at/after 10AM - Gives you some time to wake up in the morning. If you had kids, you could take them to school but never pick them up. No weekend work unless you want to.

    Cons

    Unexperienced management. Kids 22-24 were being placed into easily bulliable positions and threatened with punishment if commitments were not reached. Forced overtime. You will never have time to use the gym and, even if you do, you will want to get out of the building as soon as your shift is over. Company went from being a fun place to work at to essentially turning into a sweat shop for mortgages. They have over-hired since COVID and were giving multiple exams that, if you did not take on time, they accepted as a "letter of resignation." On a day off I was called by my team leader and asked if I could sign on and take the exam because there was "no exception" to not taking the exam while I was not punched in. Whole place is run by a bunch of kids.

    Pros

    The people are great for the most part, I made a ton of friends, and the dress code was pretty chill. I also learned a lot more than I knew about mortgages, and the training was good. I spoke with external clients every day, which I was nervous about at first, but it definitely boosted my confidence over the phone. I can take this with me just about anywhere I go.

    Cons

    Enforced culture, as far as leadership pressing you to be involved in various aspects unnecessarily. Teamwork mentality is drilled into you, so if you're more of an introvert or someone who prefers to be left alone for the majority of their work day, this place may not be for you.
