    Pros

    Company culture, daily training, open door policy, incentives and motivating bonus opportunities, given opportunities for optional overtime, happy hours and company outings. This is a company that truly is invested in every single employee from top to bottom. I have loved each and everyday working for this company since I started 3 short months ago, and look forward to continuing to work here even after I win the lottery.

    Cons

    There is only two microwaves in the kitchen and they aren't really any good.

    Advice to Management

    Get new microwaves, or at least a third one.

    Pros

    Amazing atmosphere in the office
    Good work/life balance
    Free lunches

    Cons

    Compensation structure difficult to comprehend
    Changing work schedule to include mandatory Saturday shift isn't ideal

    Advice to Management

    Continue fostering growth from within, you guys are doing an excellent job of hiring qualified candidates here. Maintain the communication and exposure to upper-level management too, it's nice knowing that they truly care about an employee's comments/concerns. Keep doing team building exercises outside of the office, it's a great way to learn more about others here at Homeside. Consider restructuring the compensation format.

    Pros

    Culture is phenomenal! Difficult to find a company, especially in an industry such as ours, that puts it's people before it's overall success. That is one of the most important aspects of any growing organization. Hours are good, its designed in a way to for all employees to put their best effort in from the start and go into the weekend significantly less drained. The repetitiveness of the Account Manager role is made up for in the relationships and overall daily atmosphere. Creates great habits from the beginning! Overall it's just exciting to see a company grow at the speed that it does and know we all have a major role in that!

    Cons

    No make or break! Could have another bathroom. Room for growth as far as benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, still plug and play at times but it will all comes together!

    Your daily quota is very achievable if you are putting in the work. The culture here is fantastic, they really do make sure it will not change. Everyone here is pretty laid back and always in good spirits. Work isn't difficult.

    Long hours but you'll find that anywhere you go. Repetitive work but this position is only temporary.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing

    Pros

    The work environment is upbeat and fun. The managers go out of their way to make sure you are excelling and meeting the daily and monthly goals. The career path in this company is clear and attainable with hard work and dedication.

    Cons

    Some days can seem longer than usual, but that goes with any sales job. You are expected to work at least one Saturday a month which can throw a wrench in some plans. Day to day is always the same so you can wear yourself out and become bored of your job if you're not driven.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing! The work atmosphere and culture here are what separate Homeside from the other companies.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Growth. Training. Open door policy with upper management. I've never had an issue with suggesting things with my direct manager, their manager and even their manager. I recall speaking with the person who interviewed me and they asked "What do you want in a company" I answered to not just be a number or an employee. I tend to think of co-workers as an additional family. In the short time I have been with Homeside I feel more respected and acknowledged than my previous company of 3 years. So the answer I received from the manager interviewing me was correct and I have never felt I have been lied to from management. They truly care about your success.

    Cons

    There isn't anything truly that any regular company doesn't have other than growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    I would try and get back to the P.A.T.H. sessions and seeing where people actually would like to go within the company and help them map out a plan and a time table of where they should be and what to do to achieve certain positions/status'

    401K match is not good.

    Look into 401K as the company grows
