    Pros

    Great corporate culture, seems like corporate is a great place to work.

    Cons

    The branch I was at was extremely unorganized and really had no plan whatsoever. There was no management skills in the branch at all and no long term vision.

    Advice to Management

    Need to review your branches more, I would give more information but I want to stay anonymous.

    Pros

    Company is big enough to be direct with Fannie, Freddie and Ginnie but yet small enough that it feels like a family and everyone cares about one another. It's not all about making a buck here - it's about being EXTREMELY good at what we do!!! People at corporate answer their phones and happy to help with whatever you need! Senior Management is open to all and any suggestions on how to improve and not only listen, implement! Since I have come on board, I have gotten calls from Jan, the President, just checking in on me! He gives out his cell phone and has told me to call him if I need him for ANYTHING! What a culture!

    Cons

    I haven't figured any out yet! But I do know if there is something I think could use some improvement, I know there is an open door policy to bring that to Senior Management's attention.

    Advice to Management

    Never take your focus off of the good people you have! Keep doing what you're doing, you'll keep getting great reviews online and NFM will grow just because of that! Please don't ever set such high goals that trying to achieve those takes your focus off of what has gotten you where you're at today and that is good solid people, caring about each other and the borrowers you serve.

    Pros

    NFM Lending sense of family environment. They give all the tools needed to excel in my position. Always open to hear suggestions to advance the company.

    Cons

    Probably my one and only con is to be more competitive with rates for the higher end borrower. That being said, they just introduced a new ARM product that is priced more competitively for higher FICO borrower.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be aggressive, yet compliance conscious. Keep being transparent. Allow for internal growth.

    I have been working at NFM Lending full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been employed as a Branch Manager of NFM Lending for almost 3 years and a mortgage banker for almost 24 years. I’ve worked at a lot of great places over the years and NFM is at the top of the list. There is always a corporate officer willing to assist and senior management is always there for us. The marketing department goes above and beyond to help. They have a plethora of products, great rates and low fees. They offer great health benefits and 401K matching. One of the biggest and best things NFM Lending does is listen. You may not get everything you want every minute, but over time, with commitment and loyalty, you see it back and with all my years in the business I have found that non-existent anywhere else. NFM is as close to perfect as possible for originators

    Cons

    Can't broker 24 years as lo and would be nice if we could but there has only been 2 I had to refer out over 3 years. Minimum loan amount 50 k. Had to refer 3 for loan amount. Doesn't matter for 99 percent of originators!

    Advice to Management

    Keep us bigger stronger and faster then the completion as u have!
