    Pros

    There were few pros about this company, unfortunately.

    Pros

    Their benefits were comparable to other companies.

    Cons

    promotion not merit-based, but time-in grade and buddy system

    Pros

    The people.
    They pay you out and show you the door when you turn in your two-week notice.
    Most of upper management was let go after the buyout so hopefully things are better now that some other company bought them.

    Cons

    Could never underestimate the level of incompetence when it came to upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Job I moved to reminded me how much better teams operate when they aren't micromanaged by incompetent people.

    Pros

    Small office so you got to know everyone.

    Cons

    There were zero opportunities for advancement. They always hired from outside versus within.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your current talent and promote versus bringing in new hires. This really hurts morale.

    Pros

    Company and executive management are clueless, so you can basically do anything you want. Make it up as you go so to speak.

    Cons

    They were purchased by Home Point, so the gig is up.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee satisfaction and everything else will fall into place.

    Pros

    The pay is the only thing that is good with this company, But now I know Pay isn't everything.

    Cons

    Management. They only look out for the people that are close to them and the people they know.. They will let you go in a heart beat. They were bought out by a company called Homepoint Financial and there just as bad. Do not work for this company. I should have never left my previous job for this place at all.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get rid of the good Employees.
