    I have been working at Red Capital Group full-time

    Pros

    If you are willing to work hard RED will give you the opportunity to learn and grow. Quick advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to achieve a good work/life balance as RED has high expectations, although as long as you are getting you work done no one really watches you come and go.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to your roots and hire young to develop talent internally.

    I worked at Red Capital Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Original Red employees (pre-ORIX) are inclusive, knowledgeable and hard working.

    Cons

    ORIX has implanted its "hard money lender" culture and forced out a lot of the good folks who helped build the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Sell while there is still some value remaining.

    Pros

    Great Office at Miranova, Good reputation, decent training programs, flexible hours, one of the best FHA lenders in the nation.

    Cons

    Orix is a terrible parent company and took a lot away from the "Red" culture. High turnover with Senior Management. Below market compensation for many positions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow the company beyond FHA lending.

    I worked at Red Capital Group full-time

    Pros

    *Strong emphasis on training
    *Fast advancement opportunities
    *Entrepreneurial culture
    *Accessibility of mid-senior management
    *Good incentive based compensation

    Cons

    When times were busy, the focus was productivity at the expense of all else. It was not possible to have a normal life while working during the boom times.

    Advice to Management

    Given the focus on productivity and incentive pay, I think management could dramatically reduce burnout by structuring required vacation time.
