Underwriter (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – June 26, 2018
The management was open, friendly, helpful and you felt a part of the team. I was very sad when the layoffs began. I enjoyed working with all of the different mortgage Companies, Credit Unions, and Banks. Each day was a new adventure.
Employee (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – March 31, 2018
The company creates endless reports regarding production and errors. You are constantly told that you are NOT in competition with your colleagues, yet they pin you against each other in every report. Management meets with you to discuss problems or accomplishments but don't tell you how to fix problems or give you the means to help. The technology is outdated. They have the means to make employees remote but refuse to do so.
Good insurance policy and 401k benefits
Unless you're in the main office, there is no room for advancement
Claims Examiner (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – February 12, 2018
Not a bad place to work, I believe they pay well because the job is relatively boring and quality control is always looming over you. I had good and not so good managers. You are always hounded about quality but when you ask for training it is not offered. The hardest part of the job is the inconsistency . I was a remote employee , I didn't really experience " work place culture ". The managers are in endless amounts of meetings and often unavailable. As a remote employee there was not opportunity for job advancement.
Regional Claims Manager (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – November 20, 2017
In a typical day I answered questions from staff and managers while performing my own tasks. My tasks included approving claim payments which exceeded my staff's authority, and I worked on many task forces which required attendance at many meetings. I assisted other departments when questions regarding claims arose. The hardest part of the job was finding enough time to train and mentor my staff. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my staff as well as outside customers.
Claims Examiner I (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 27, 2017
The benefits at MGIC were very good and the pay was decent. There were critical deadlines to meet daily and most of the time we were micromanaged. The workplace was fast pace and extremely challenging and mentally draining each day. The best part of my job is I was able to work from home from 2013 through 2017. This was also the most difficult part of my job because if I had a question, sometimes I wouldn't get an answer for days.
Underwriter/CSM Level II (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 15, 2017
Very fast paced environment with somewhat high levels of stress associated with certain duties. Overall it was a great place to work near the end things got a bit ridiculous in having to ask to go use the restroom. However anything to do with the mortgage industry is very interesting one day is never like the last.

Underwriter (Former Employee) – Bloomfield Hills, Michigan – October 22, 2013
Contract underwriter to MGIC guidelines as well as FannieMae. The hardest part of the job was when I caught misrep by one of the sales reps and he admitted. It was very difficult as the file had to be escalated to MGIC's QA for further review. Another hard part of the job was knowing that the assignment would be soon ending.
Very nice parties.
As a contractor you don't have the same benefits as a FTE i.e. time off, etc.
