So I was laid off 2 months ago due to the company not doing great, now I’ve been interviewing and finally received a job offer. The dilemma is that there are a few other companies I’m in late stages with that have better comp/benefits/PTO/value alignment. Have you ever accepted an offer since you need the money and insurance and still continued interviewing? Ethically, I feel wrong, like I’m “cheating” if I accept and still entertain other roles. What would you do?

Senior Financial Analyst
I found myself in the job market after a layoff in March and have been diligently looking for new opportunities since. With a solid six-year background as a Senior Financial Analyst and Consultant, complemented by PMP and Scrum Master certifications, I bring a wealth of expertise to the table. However, the current job market is notably competitive. I’m curious if others are experiencing similar challenges in finding employment.

-Lower Management is great. -Their checks don't bounce.
-Ever since ownership/upper management changed, company loyalty to their employees has gone down the tubes. You are now just a number/worker to make them money. (Previously, the company/owner would not to layoffs, and would prepare for the down-times, or move people around; now, they do not care.) -They will change the bonus/incentive plan saying it's better, and now has no limit. But, in reality they now require a minimum that is hard to obtain; so, most people no longer receive any bonus/incentive. -You can get a certification and thus receive more work, but may not receive a raise to match. -When people are laid-off upper management will tell you "don't to worry about those people, they'll survive". And when it's your turn, they'll tell you the same about yourself. -Early layoffs were about trimming the fat, which is typical. But, later layoffs trimmed the highest paid in each department, with no regard to any tenure, quality issues, or objective measurement except that you made the most. -Benefits are mediocre at best.3Primary Residential Mortgage Response12mo

My coworkers were amazing, the benefits didn’t bankrupt me, I actually got to use my PTO
The management of PRMI could have been handled better. Layoffs, as others have said, were poorly handled. Teams of 20 were whittled down to 4-5 employees, with a similar output and responsibility expectation post-layoff. They refused to backfill positions, opting to just offload responsibilities to other team members, often without a compensation increase. Two weeks before Christmas 2022, upper management announced a decrease in pay for remaining employees in 2023, where hours and salaries were cut by 25-33%. In my time with PRMI, I noticed a very significant decrease in quality of culture. Middle management would talk negatively about team members, painting them in a bad light to their peers. Professionalism sometimes just went out the window entirely. It was very clear that my coworkers affected were miserable, and their departures (pre-layoffs) were never a surprise. Those who stayed were “rewarded” for their loyalty with unclear communications and sudden loss of jobs. Pay is, very clearly, well below market value for the asks.1Primary Residential Mortgage Response8mo
Thank you for the feedback. Glad you had great co-workers! It makes all the difference when we work with good teammates! Hope you were able to enjoy the PTO while relaxing and re-energizing. Yes, yes, we went through some rough months, for sure! Wish we could bring everyone back, but that is tough to do when the volume doesn't support the staffing numbers. Team members have realized their full pay, however, and we are grateful for that! We are also excited about the uptick in volume this year and anticipate good things in the months ahead! Sounds like we can all do a better job with professionalism. We definitely want to focus on the positive. Thanks, again!

I had great coworkers while at PRMI, and we were able to work on several interesting projects together.
When the market was great for mortgages they reaped the benefits but did not plan for the future. As soon as things changed many people were let go with no notice at all.

It's a challenging time for the mortgage business, but they are doing well.
