I worked remotely for this company, underwriting strictly FHA, VA, USDA and conv loans, at times 13 hr days to maintain

DE Unerwriter (Former Employee)

I worked at Caliber Funding full-time for more than a year

Prosworking remotely helped me to maintain the excessive volume

Consthey grew so fast from, 10 uw up to over 100, then when business dropped due to rate increase, several layoffs occurred - no stability

Advice to Senior Managementthey should consider hiring for long term employment, not just grow the company for their benefit and toss out the employees when they've reached their goal

Fast-growing company with a lot of opportunity for growth

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Caliber Funding full-time

ProsCaliber is adding people fast so there is a lot of opportunity. The people are truly great, and there is a lot of room to bring ideas to the table.

ConsCaliber is growing really fast, so just some normal growing pains of bringing on large numbers of employees in a short period of time.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great company for innovaters in the mortgage industry.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I have been working at Caliber Funding full-time

ProsSince change of Senior Management took place, the company is taking major steps to becoming a true mortgage lending force in nation. New growth of mortgage originators and branch locations show the dedication to capturing market and providing concierge service to the clients. Agressive compensation, benefits and fantastic culture.

ConsFast growth comes with growing pains, but the focus of resolution and fast response to issues offsets this.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep customer service as #1 goal and employee satisfaction #2. It's a winning combination.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Fun & Energetic place to work with lots of opportunities to grow!!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I have been working at Caliber Funding full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat work environment & awesome culture. Employees are empowered to make decisions and those decisions are supported. Co-workers are fun and great to work with, more like a family that supports one another. Management allows you freedom to take ownership of your projects with very little micromanaging

ConsIt would be rough if this were your first place to work since it would be hard to beat Caliber as a great place to work! Not enough hours in the day for all of the cool ideas that surface!

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to be transparent and inviting to innovation. Never lose site of the unique culture that makes Caliber the company that it is. Keep up the great work!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Love My Job!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I have been working at Caliber Funding full-time

ProsThis company's culture is truly amazing. Employees are encouraged to give open and honest feedback and to think "outside of the box". The different departments within Caliber pull together and work as a team which is extremely refreshing. It's great to know that your co-workers have your back and can depend on one another.

ConsNo real cons. We are currently experiencing very rapid growth so just some normal growing pains of bringing on large numbers of employees in a short period of time.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
