    Pros

    The benefit packages are some of the best I have ever had for the price.

    Mortgage business as a whole down currently.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work of caring for your employees.

    I have been working at James B. Nutter & Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My biggest pro is that Nutter always does the right thing for their customers. For example, I really respect that they chose not to do subprime lending. The Nutter managers and supervisors are really good people and work closely with their employees. Many employees have worked there longer than 10 years. Nutter has reasonable hours and they offer great benefits--they really step up to the plate on health insurance and 401k.

    Cons

    The mortgage business is changing and good lenders like Nutter often get lumped in with the bad guys.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course--treating your customers the right way always wins in the long run.

    I worked at James B. Nutter & Company full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are great. Management is very experienced with their chosen field, Knowledge of managing workers is n.

    Cons

    Outdated computer system. Non existent HR. Just sold a bunch mortgages, Likely more layoffs. Very “clicky” organization! Many office supplies purchased by employees. Company collects old paper clips to avoid purchasing new ones. Don’t expect anything for awesome work and work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    How about an HR Department that actually follows through with directives?

    I worked at James B. Nutter & Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some good people that try really hard to make things work.

    Cons

    CEO does not want to spend any money to upgrade technology. He is losing business and takes it out on employees. There was a recent layoff due to lack of business. I had worked there for over 17 years and was given just 2 weeks severance pay. Jim Nutter does not care about people or employees.

    Advice to Management

    When you treat people like unappreciated garbage, you will get a garbage product. Understand that if you want to make money, you have to treat employees better.

    I worked at James B. Nutter & Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It’s located close to the plaza and midtown

    Cons

    Large layoffs, lies lies to temps and says they will be hired on but never do. No breaks what so ever.

    Advice to Management

    Technology has changed and now its time for you to get with the times and update computers , phone systems, and work hours . Not everyone need to work 8:15 to 5.

    I have been working at James B. Nutter & Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    James B. Nutter & Company is a privately owned company so you are treated as a person and not a number. People who come to work here usually stay. The longevity is amazing! I like knowing my co-workers throughout the company for years. The company offers employees great benefits!!!! The mortgage industry is fast-paced and ever changing so there is all ways work to do and new things to learn which makes the day go by quickly, no down time watching the clock. The company enjoys a reputation for helping their employees, customers and community for many decades.

    Cons

    Longevity makes advancement so but still worth the wait.
    The workload can get hectic at times.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to change and restructure so the company can soar another 60+ years.

    Pros

    Family oriented company. Your not just a number in the corporation and the only person that knows you exist is your immediate supervisor. Tenure in this company is amazing, 40% of the company has been here 15 plus years. That says a lot about the company, when employees choose to commit a lifetime to a company. Great benefits and 401K profit sharing plan.

    Cons

    Have no downsides to speak of.

    Pros

    Mon - Fri - daytime hours

    Cons

    Employees are singled out for criticism and disciplinary actions that are excused and covered-up for favored employees (friends), the quality and productivity of your work means nothing. It's a popularity contest run amok, a high school atmosphere left un-checked, even condoned by upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Wake Up! And weed out the poison that is killing your company.

    Pros

    Salaried position which allowed for more fluid conversation and not needing to rush quite so much. Solid organization.

    Cons

    The place got stale and increasingly predictable on the low end of expectations.
