    I worked at First Home Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great outward look of company. Most think its fantastic from the outside, so they have a good reputation for now. SBA is the best around

    Cons

    complete mgt team (all but 1) are in over their heads - amateur hour. People that managed 2-3 people somehow given massive responsibilities and they have no clue how to do the job and make decisions that they know nothing about- its embarrassing that they actually empowered LO and that they were even hired to fulfill those positions, from top to bottom of mortgage division. . I guess corporate wont catch on until they...

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees who have ACTUAL real experience and stop hiring people just because you worked with them before if they dont have actual experience for the job you are giving them. The decisions the amateurs are making are effecting REAL people including employees and clients. The upper management has to stop responding emotionally to conflict. To Bank SVPs- wake up before you lose the entire division over mismanagement.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at First Home Bank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Awesome culture, benefits, support and opportunity for advancement. 1HB has done all the right things in developing a best in class Residential Mortgage Division. I work in the direct to consumer division and the leads, pricing, programs and operations are second to none. There are literally no excuses for someone not to be successful with this support.

    Cons

    I was with my previous employer for 12 years and when comparing the two- there are no cons that come to mind. Growth typically brings some challenges however when the entire team is committed to communication, collaboration and success, it makes those challenges fun!

    Advice to Management

    Let the SBA team know that the Mortgage Division will be giving them a run for their money in being the top vertical for the bank! :)

    I worked at First Home Bank full-time

    Pros

    The microwave works and they provide toilet paper.

    Cons

    This place is controlled by a handful of people, (anyone with a title of SVP and above) so if you're not in that group, don't bother. There are people there that after being a teller for 3 yrs became a SVP, so you know what that is already.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother?

    I worked at First Home Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Management provides all necessary tools to complete job. Does not micro manage and gives you room to succeed. Good Benefits.

    Cons

    Management develops structural change to departments without consulting members, who are the experts, to effect change in the most efficient and profitable way.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and always remember to treat other as you would want to be treated.
