    I worked at Movement Mortgage full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    New, young, vibrant and growing! Good facilities!

    Cons

    At time, maybe growing too fast?

    Advice to Management

    Loan officers matter. Too many in one area can hurt your current ones.

    I worked at Movement Mortgage full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Some really good people that work there that really care but quickly found out after I left the few that do. Process allowed for a quick close if needed.

    Cons

    Lack of true leadership skills in what they call "leaders". It's more of a good 'ole boys club. It was who you knew, who you were related to and who you were friends with. No opportunity to advance in your career - true leaders would see the skills and potential of their employees and offer them opportunities for growth. All sales managers were hired from the outside, no internal promotions or consideration....

    I worked at Movement Mortgage full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    good as a stepping stone, Movement Mortgage name looks good on a resume, a lot of the people are great to work with, great work/life balance as far as being able to leave on time in the evenings, free breakfast on Friday mornings, pretty relaxed environment

    Cons

    no growth opportunity, compensated well under the average in the area for my role, hiring people into roles without training or supporting them, inexperienced leadership, continued learning and career growth has to be self motivated and not supported by budget, hiring outside people instead of giving opportunities to those internally desiring growth, too unstable, unorganized, career potential built on wishful thinking...

    Advice to Management

    My main piece of advice to management would be to seriously consider the feedback of former and current employees to create solutions of positive change and use it to move the company forward. Stop resisting opposing view points or challenges of authority and start listening to the ideas of your employees. Movement’s biggest problem is a comfortable attitude from leadership that seems to say “well this is my choice so...

    I worked at Movement Mortgage full-time

    Pros

    Great brand marketing and a good culture sell from corporate. Employees want to be helpful and are always friendly.

    Cons

    They have a good model but it requires a lot of attention to detail and I think their middle managers have failed the company. I don't know that the executive leadership understand how their underwriting/processing hubs have fallen apart and no longer serve the sales teams. The operations hubs are in fact a material hindrance on the company. A good example are the people that are hired at the operation 'hubs'. A...

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate and reevaluate how those hubs are working because if you listen only to the Ops Managers you are hearing bad information. Some of the most insane examples of cognitive dissonance I've ever heard have come from the Ops Managers about their unparalleled efficiency despite clear evidence to the contrary.

    I worked at Movement Mortgage full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Not much to say about their values. Lack of respect for employees and opportunities to favorites only. too many clickish groups & upper management very cold and uncaring.

    Cons

    They lay off people after rounding them up like livestock, drive them into a room and read a very cold statement about company not meeting goals and must reduce staff. Only to find out that they turn around and buy up another mortgage company for millions maybe billion dollar. They have a motto of Love and Value people and our employees and it's boggus. Every Friday morning they have a company gathering to tell everyone...

    Work Family culture allows you to work and still go home at at the end of the day. Overtime is frequent, if desired to work.
