Loan Processor (Former Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – April 10, 2018
Academy mortgage was a great building block for trying to advance my career in home mortgages. The biggest issue facing the company was some of the people they had in charge. Made it difficult to stay on board.

Great place to work, they created a job for me, just wish they would have found a way to make it work and I could have continued to work with this great group of people. After 28 years in Mortgage Banking it was time to retire.
Quality Assurance Specialist (Former Employee) – Rolling Meadows, IL – March 15, 2018
I enjoyed working for the company. Great atmosphere. Pay wasn't so great. Well informed about changing procedures or updates. Managers should focus on their managing employees as a whole and not micromanage as well as insure there assisting managers are honest and not play favorites.
There is not workplace privacy between employee and managers
Mortgage Loan Officer (Current Employee) – Layton, UT – March 7, 2018
Overall Academy is a great company to work for. As a loan officer, I didn't feel I had much support from the management, but I enjoyed those I worked with, and had competitive pay and excellent benefits.
Great Atmosphere with Great People...Loved it there
Loan Officer Assistant (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – February 16, 2018
A great place to learn and work your way up. I loved the people I worked with. I learned so much during my short time there. It was unfortunate my husband had to get sick or I'd still be there today. Management was very fair and I really enjoyed going to work everyday.
Everything - Great place to start in the mortgage industry
Good corporate culture, just didn't translate locally
District Processing Manager (Former Employee) – Texas – February 12, 2018
Academy Mortgage has an excellent corporate culture that fosters service to anyone in need. The company provides stellar support to their sales staff. Operations staff - especially those not located at the home office - did not feel valued.
Nice workplace and fun people, but they'll drop you without a second thought.
Administrative Assistant - Closing (Former Employee) – Lakewood, CO – February 1, 2018
I enjoyed working at Academy. But be wary of corporate. They very much believe that the workforce should be flexible. Hiring new people when volume is high and firing them when things slow down. They only think of employees as cogs in a machine, not as actual people.
