Pros

It is nice to work with dedicated folks, and the physical plant is acceptable, although inconsistent from one office to another

Cons

Managment is not very involved, there is an incredible amount of work to be done with considerable resource constraints and too many varied tasks with too much key person dependency

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more pro-actively involved in the work.

    Pros

    * You get to learn about the mortgage industry.
    * Lots of talented, hard-working people

    Cons

    * You are beeing watched all the time, like no one trust you.
    * Company has gone downhill the past few years, and there is a lot of uncertainty on where it is headed
    * Many employees stretched thin and stressed
    * Expect to be on call 24/7 and work overtime on a regular basis, and with no additional compensation or comp time
    * Incredible amount of work to be done by too few employees who have limited access to resources
    * Very little time to learn the applications and train
    * Too many processes with too much dependence on a few key people
    * Too much complexity in the applications
    * Management seems to want to push their work onto the employees
    * Toxic work environment with lots of bickering and tons of office politics
    * Management wants to create a barrier between contractors and regular employees
    * Turnover is high with many people leaving in less than 1 year (no surprise given the above points)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are not Sheeps, they can only work 8 hours productively

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
