    Pros

    The work/life balance and healthy lifestyle is strongly encouraged. Motivating upper management that makes you excited to work and to work hard. Career growth and new opportunities are encouraged.

    Cons

    Although there are satellite offices, they prefer everyone to be at headquarters. With that being said, working remote/from home is not as common.

      I worked at Live Oak Bank full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Good people, fun atmosphere, gym and health benefits, full of like-minded young people

      Cons

      Cookie-cutter loan approvals, very few pay increases of any worth, people don't necessarily take work too seriously

      Advice to Management

      Pay internally-developed staff, perks alone will not keep star employees who do not want to be complacent.
