    I have been working at United Shore full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I absolutely love going to work every single day. I’ve worked at other Big Box Lenders. And the culture we have at UWM is incomparable. Where do I start? Our Amazing team is like family. Our Leadership truly cares for everyone. We are like family away from family. No matter who you are our CEO will walk up to you and address you by your name. I still have no clues how he knows everyone’s name. Open communication, Leadership...

    Cons

    If I had to find something it’s too many meetings for Sales team. Monday’s are the worst due only to I can’t get on the phones to assist clients until 11:45 or 12 noon. This should be looked at and changed ASAP. All Sales Leaders feel the same. With all of our technology we could get the same messages to the team via Goto meetings or conf calls.

    Advice to Management

    You’re doing a Great job overall. Nothing is ever perfect but we are almost there. Let’s just fix a few loose ends and onward to #1 4 yrs in a row! #50B!

In fact, one of our pillars is "continuous improvement is essential for long-term growth" is not only for the company but our team members too.

    Pros

    The People - working with amazing individuals every day who love what they do and are on focused on the same mission - to be the best by being the best not only professionally but personally. There is so much kindness and thoughtfulness around you! Leadership - no matter what, they support and take care of you at all levels.

    Cons

    No working from home but that was the expectation set before I started so I understand, it’s definitely not a deal breaker for me and I love being with my team everyday, but it would be nice when life stuff happens to be able to handle my business from home. Honestly that’s about it! Any concern I have ever had has been addressed and they are always seeking feedback to make things better - I couldn’t ask for more when...

    Pros

    Great People, like literally the best people

    Cons

    Micro Management, IT Leaders that are bulldogs without correct knowledge to make informed decisions. Leadership is a clique, but that's nothing new. Great place to start, but they won't promote you, so do your two years working 50 a week and find a better job

    Advice to Management

    they don't really listen at the top level, so this field is N/A

    Pros

    Co-workers are great. Good entry level type job.

    Cons

    CEO preaches 40 hours work-life balance. He seems to really believe that. Teams required to put in more than 60-80 hours to meet deadlines and told they will be coached out if they ask for raise or promotion. What gives?

    Advice to Management

    Get to the bottom of what is really going on with your teams if you really care. Before HR team responds below - do you really think employees feel like they can come to you with these concerns and stay anonymous and keep their job?

    Thank you for taking time to write us a review. We strongly believe in the 40-hour work week to give our team members a healthy balance between work and spending time with family and friends. There are certainly times when we ask teams to go beyond that, based on surges in our business ...
