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

    Pros

    Don’t worry, everyone is being treated just as awful as you are. Keep your resume current...

    Cons

    Not flexible - got kids, stay far away. Huge micro-managing. Lots of favoritism. HR is very cliquey, talks badly about employees confidential and private issues when it’s supposed to be private and not discussed. Overworked - you are expected to be online 8 am -8pm - no joke.

    Cons

    Leadership claims to be "humble" but they are the only ones that call themselves humble. Which begs the question..... are they really humble? ???? Unless you are one of the "chosen" ones you will be constantly overlooked, under appreciated and taken for granted at all times. The expectations for you vs. someone in the same role as you that is a "chosen one" are different expectations so beware of that. The President...

    Advice to Management

    Actually be humble if you are going to call yourselves humble. In case you need to know the meaning....... humble- having or showing a modest or low estimate of one's own importance.
