    I have been working at Homeward Residential (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ok pay and benefits, PTO would be a 3.

    Cons

    Reprimanding employees in front of peers. Tells the employees how great the management is at hiring highly skilled employees, except almost the entire team doesn't know how to do self employment income the way the company wants. Hey you hired all of us! Guess you need to take some training in how to hire and how to talk to your employees. Very poor management! and the training is the worse I have ever experience in 30 years in the business. But, hey if you ask them they are the best! LOL

    Advice to Management

    Take HR classes, get some real managers and real training. Spend some $$ on your training tools!

    I have been working at Homeward Residential full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Leads for days! Operations has room for improvement but the good thing is, they are improving. Just underwent massive Ops overhaul. Excited for what it will bring to the table... more fundings!

    Cons

    Operations didn't grow as fast as originations so we've felt that impact the past few months. Again, completely overhauled Ops from the top down and things are looking up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! You've taken care of me (us) for over 3 years now.. thank you!

    Pros

    They kept the phones ringing

    Cons

    Gestapo like atmosphere with inexperienced managers. - Target on your back if you don't succum to their childish ways - unprofessional sales managers - because of constant law suit losses in the hundreds of millions with the parent company Ocwen - due to very poor service levels - management is running scared - worried about being able to keep the doors open - they have had to sell off their portfolio to stay afloat due to the constant massive lawsuits - now they are trying to get internet leads

    Advice to Management

    Grow up - get sales managers that have actually spent some time in mortgage sales - get less top heavy - you can't walk in the Coppell office without running into a sales manager
