    Pros

    Sovereign Lending Group is full of experienced, driven, and inspiring leaders of the mortgage industry. They have a wide variety of products and the ability to compete for and win business nationwide! Speed, efficiency, and consistency are what you can expect when taking your borrowers through the process. Their Tech 1 training program is GOLD. Companies that focus as much as SLG on training and development of new employees is RARE. I commend this company and feel immense gratitude for this opportunity from punch in to punch out. They invest in your NMLS test, state licensing, and incubation training program to help you start and spread your wings!! Covid era has been difficult, but learning remotely and having patient and thorough industry leading trainers balances out any doubt of success. Hands down amazing company with incredible opportunity for both seasoned loan officers and inexperienced hospitality/service/sales focused individuals!

    Cons

    Learning remote - need to be computer savvy.

    Pros

    I have nothing but great things to say about Sovereign Lending. Since day one I knew I made the right decision to come on board. They really care about their employees and want what is best for everyone. They believe in work/life balance which is rare in our industry. The Management team is amazing and is always there for you when needed.

    Pros

    The Tech1 Program that Sovereign offers is PHENOMENAL for people like me who wanted to explore the industry with no experience. The first two weeks are dedicated to studying and passing the NMLS test. They pay you hourly, and pay for your test as well. After passing the test, I got 15 state licenses. They paid for all of the state education as well as the licenses. Just an absolutely BLESSING for people with no experience. Thank you Sovereign for investing in potential!

    Cons

    No free lunches (sorry, my last place of work spoiled me haha) All jokes aside, there is not too many cons compared to the pros. The job is challenging, and your first two funded loans are 0bps. What I really appreciate is that everything is told to you up front There are no surprises. Just don't expect to be making 6 figures right off the bat. Give yourself some honest expectations and work hard. Sovereign will provide everything else you need.
