    I worked at Sierra Pacific Mortgage full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Small, relatively close-knit department with friendly, engaging people.

    Cons

    Mortgage Industry is subject to whims of Government rules and regulations, so priorities are constantly changing. Senior Staff has never *heard of* consulting IT before implementing changes or additions to project scope.

    Advice to Management

    Your hallway meetings with one or two members of the team and then informing the entire team of a sweeping change is literally destructive to the project. Let Project Managers do their job.

    Keep up the good work in being supportive to your team, but perhaps take some leadership courses to learn how to stop the gossip and infighting and get everyone in their groove to close close close those loans!
