26 First Franklin Financial Company Reviews and Ratings


Underwriter
Posted last year in Melville, NY

"High pressure enviornment, low compensation"

What do you like about working at First Franklin Financial?

"Laid back enviornment as far as attire and overall feel. (please keep in mind some time has passed since I was there and management has changed)"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be prepared to work long days. Very high pressure enviornment, as is common in the mortgage industry."

What don't you like about working at First Franklin Financial?

"Base pay towards the low end of industry standard. No bonuses, and overtime was not paid at a higher rate than regular time for salaried employees. Did not always feel support from management. Felt daily workloads were sometimes unrealistic. No buffer or safeguards against unreasonable and excessive correspendence from loan officers to processors/underwriters."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Listen to employees concerns. Don't wait for people to resign before offering to listen and/or address their concerns. Regardless of the circumstance, you need to strongly enforce that loan officers always speak to processors/underwriters with respect. Regarding compensation, you get what you pay for."
