    I have been working at Essent Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Professional people- peers and managers. Quality of personnel hired is amazing. excellent salary and benefits. State of art equipment, software and office space. truly happy employees are paid for performance and have managerial support. benefits include stock options, company paid 401k and bonuses both quarterly and annually. some employees work from home and can tele-commute if necessary.

    Cons

    corporate office has a strict dress code to maintain level of professionalism.

    Advice to Management

    Consider promoting from within to maintain high level of employee felt ownership. Company is growing extremely fast and some of the small company feel is diminishing. Recommend allowing employees access to company store to encourage esprit de corps and show Essent pride.

    Pros

    Some of the best folks I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Low apparent upward mobility ceiling unless already in management.

    Advice to Management

    Most of us will never meet an actual customer. Why are we dressing up every day?
