    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

    Great culture, fun and friendly working environment.
    Endless help from great support staff.
    Rapid growth and chances for upward mobility.
    Focus on continuing education and improvement.

    Cons

    The job itself can be intricate, difficult and stressful, but this is the case with mortgages anywhere. It's a tough field to succeed in if you don't have the right mentality. It's also an industry in which it's easy to spend your whole life working. That being said, Homeside does a good job of supporting its LOs and pushing for a good work/life balance.

    Pros

    Fun, exciting place to work. They are flexible with work schedules and needs and work hard to make a good atmosphere. The culture is such that you want to work hard to keep up with everyone else but also have a good time and enjoy being with your coworkers

    Cons

    Could use a more diverse workforce. Mostly guys straight out of college and the atmosphere suffers a little from the resulting machismo.

    Pros

    No better company to start a career with. Homeside gives you the tools to become a successful businessperson, but it's on you to take the next step. Perfect company for driven individuals who are looking for a fast-paced and dynamic workplace with one of a kind culture. Tons of parties and events to get to know the amazing staff. Not to mention the office is amazing.

    Cons

    Don't expect to do nothing and coast along.
    Constant change, due to age of the company, can sometimes affect long term work goals.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Continue promoting from within. More Happy Hours!

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere, coworkers and managers that support each other and actively help each other obtain goals. Detail oriented, thorough, friendly environment. Definitely put you in the best position to advance yourself professionally.

    Cons

    Working as an account manager can somewhat be a drag, lots of phone calls required until moving on to the loan officer role.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to advance at their own pace instead of pushing some into roles they may not be prepared for. This isn't a common occurrence, but it is the one piece of advice I would have for management.

    Pros

    Great company culture- I don't dread going to work. We work hard & play hard! Fun to be around these people!
    Great employees - You will find people that will become your best friends
    Great growth potential - Since I have started working here, the expansion of the company is on an exponential rate! We will become a top 10 Lender in a few short years!
    Young company - 1. Young in its journey, 4 year old company working like a staple in the industry. 2. Young vibrant people work here & are continuing to flock
    Growth potential - The company itself is growing & getting better, this company provides an amazing opportunity to grow yourself, able to improve one's personal & professional skills/abilities

    Cons

    The hours - You still work a 40 hour work week, but are separated by the long days are on Monday & Tuesday (9-7), Wednesday & Thursday (9-6), & Friday (9-4).
    Work/Life balance isn't ideal
    Brand name recognition - Not many people know about Homeside, it is lacking

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! You have been taking this company into the right direction, soon we will be a force to be reconed with in the entire industry. I would also tell them to bolster brand awareness.
