    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    First Home Bank has a very strong marketing team that drives several different lead sources to their mortgage bankers. The company gives their mortgage bankers all the tools and resources needed to close a lot of volume per month.

    Cons

    There are no cons, good benefits, hard work is rewarded, and compensation is great too.

  2. "A fantastic work experience!"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Corporate Administration in Saint Petersburg Beach, FL

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

    Pros

    A strong, positive corporate culture that permeates throughout the entire organization. The company is growing rapidly, which lends itself to a dynamic, fast-paced environment where there is always something new to learn, something new to do, etc. As an employee, I truly feel as though I am given all the tools I need to be successful and grow my career within the organization. The benefits are fantastic (100% employer-paid insurance plans!), and work/life balance is valued. In my experience, the executive team has been extremely approachable, transparent in communications, and open to employees' comments and suggestions. It is truly a progressive organization in every sense, with a welcoming and collaborative environment, and we are always trying to find new ways to be innovative. I can't say enough great things about my time with this organization so far!

    Cons

    Could benefit from more company-sponsored events that allow employees to network regularly.

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits and company culture. Being relatively new to banking, everyone (including senior management), is very helpful in providing insightful and useful information to help. Lots of room for growth within the company as well!

    Cons

    Currently can not think of any negatives about working here!

    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 lose every good employee they have. Its a real shame.

    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!
