Software Development Supervisor (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 2, 2018
The people were nice, good hard working people. Great environment. The reason I wouldn't recommend the company is that upper management doesn't think before they act. They hire people then lay them off fairly frequently.
It was fast paced environment. They take good care of their employees. It was a very comfortable atmosphere. The process was well managed. Work without supervision, no one stood over you and watched everything you did. Just as long as you did your job correctly no complaints.
Challenging work environment, with corporate shortcomings.
Retail Mortgage Banker/Broker (Former Employee) – Carlsbad, CA – May 23, 2017
Great company, but could not execute when needed. Typical day at work starts from home around 5am at home office, then go to the office around 9am I learned that capitalization is a key element for a company trying to expand. Management was like a revolving door. Workplace culture was very corporate with very little encouragement of support for new ideas and innovation. The hardest part of the job was continually changing compliance requirements mostly imposed by the federal govt. The most enjoyable part of the job: Freedom
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – May 16, 2017
This company has room to grow; however shows favoritism to certain employees no matter the length of service. They cover compensate with food instead of giving bonuses to their very hard working employees. The upper management gets more than the small guy on the totem pole.

assistant (Former Employee) – Houston – June 30, 2015
The office is poorly managed. The Branch Manager is disrespectful. The office itself is not set up for clients. The Branch Manager is not a manager at all and needs to be trained in how to communicate with and manage employees
Upstart business that overestimated their earning potential
Lender Support Manager (Former Employee) – Monroe, LA – November 22, 2013
Envoy Mortgage's Correspondent Lending Division, which was opened in April 2013, was painted to be a successful up-and-coming new branch of Envoy Mortgage, Ltd., with limitless potential for me to advance within the firm. My duties included working with senior management and the sales staff to ensure we were bringing in new Lenders and loans and to process the Lender applications and maintain reports. Once we signed a contract with a Lender it was also my duty to be on-call for the Lender if they had any questions or problems with locking their loans. In the beginning there wasn't much work coming in and after a short influx of loans we began to see a slump again. The sales team, going from Lender to Lender in states across the US, wasn't able to add any new Lenders after a while, and we fell short of projected earnings, resulting in my lay off as well as several other staff members. Management ensured me that there was nothing wrong with my performance, and stated they would gladly give an outstanding recommendation. The staff that remained included the original staff that worked together at the previous firm that they left from, Affiliated Mortgage. Those who were let go were not part of that original group. While the duration of my employment at Envoy was short and wrought with worry about the company's earnings, senior management was fair and made an effort to keep their staff happy and productive. I was told after the first quarter of next year I would be made manager of the entire sales team, once they hired more sales staff. Unfortunately, that did not come to pass. Themore... hardest part of the job was bringing in new loans during a tumultuous time in the mortgage market. The most enjoyable part was working with a great staff and management team - we all had a great rapport. I learned a lot about the risk involved in Correspondent Lending and sales and gained skills using MS Access.less
