Part-Time Title Clerk- Incoming Titles (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 26, 2016
You'll enjoy this place as a good company to start with. There are advancement opportunities, they do actually promote from within often. Management positions are hard to get, as many managers stick around due to their excellent benefits- paid for! If you get a good manager, you can expect to be a little more flexible when you need to make appointments or have family issues. Upper management does not understand the employees, thinking that everyone can afford the pricey insurance. Lots of nepotism, lots. So many people are related, which causes problems. Office politics are heavy in the air, you can't talk to some people, just do as you're told and don't ask questions type of thing. They used to be focused on the employees, but now more focused on numbers. I was there in the beginning of the end- we used to get bonuses and way more benefits. The little guy was appreciated, now you have to be a manager to get anything, and they dump so much work on them. They have no time to actually manage the branch, they have to review referrals. If you can handle the company's ugly side, you'll love it. If you can't, you'll hate it. I stayed so many years (9 in total in different positions) because of the people, we're still friends.
Lunch provided sometimes, getting to know people
Benefits are expensive, upper management focused on numbers not members or employee needs.
