    I have been working at Homeside Financial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture at Homeside Financial is second to none.

    Every employee at Homeside from top to bottom is willing to bend over backwards to help one another.

    Upper management at Homeside does a great job of communicating their goals and expectations while providing employees with the knowledge and resources necessary to accomplish both personal and company wide goals.

    Homeside is a very upbeat team oriented company and I truly enjoy coming in to work every day!

    Cons

    Learning how to use some of the loan officer software on the fly can be a little tough to start, but there is more than enough help within Homeside to conquer this learning curve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Transparency and recognition from management are key and those are two things that I feel Homeside excels with.

    Pros

    Culture, culture, culture! This establishment is hands down the BEST place I've worked in my career. I've never worked at a place that invests in their employees as much as Homeside, and the culture here is phenomenal.

    Cons

    Yet to find anything to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at Homeside Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, good management, friendly people, understanding, promote from within, free lunch, fun happy hours lol

    Cons

    Not good training, they promote from within but are not persistent with training. TRAINING SUCKS! They expect you to beg, and beg in order to move up the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Work on their training, especially when they are trying to move people up the ladder.

    I have been working at Homeside Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are looking for a place with top talent to get your loans closed, then look no further. Prior to working here, I had only ever seen 1 loan get done in 3 weeks, here that is the expectation not the exception.

    Cons

    As with any growing organization there are some changes to the processes that happen frequently, but they will update you weekly on all the key changes so you are ready for whatever is thrown at you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
