    One of The Best Places to Work!

    Underwriting (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA (US)

    ProsVery family oriented friendly people. Very Mom-friendly in terms of schedule flexibility. Great work-life balance. Lots of perks. I found it very impressive with how senior management was able to manage this firm quite well through a tough financial market. have nothing but optimistic outlook on the future of this company. Very inspiring group of people. Encouraging work environment.

    ConsThe company is pretty small therefore it's very hard to move up. Career-wise you'll start to feel stuck after a few years. Much office politics, very male dominated culture. There are absolutely no women in senior level positions at this company.

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

    Good life/work balance.

    ProsVery friendly staff and family oriented; good work/life balance

    Great people, great environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Philadelphia, PA (US)

    ProsGreat group of people, working hard to make things work, with a high level of respect for work and life balance.

    ConsThe company is still facing headwinds due to funding challenges in the capital markets. Management has been very good about dodging the bullets, but could do a better job laying out the future of the company to employees.

    Family oriented employee friendly company.

    Loan Servicing Specialist (Former Employee)

    ProsRAIT is an employee friendly company. The companies corporate culture does value a balance between work and life. When able the company is more than willing to reward employees for a job well done.

    ConsWith the smaller employee base there are not many opportunities for advancement. Many employees have been with the company for a long time and so there is less of a chance to move up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a need for better communications between departments. Operational decisions need to be precise in meaning and distributed in writing so that all departments will be using the same guidelines.
