    Pros

    Good benefits, fair pay, fun perks at times

    Cons

    Long hours, no real work life balance, if you aren’t a Karen, you won’t make it here. Very little diversity (look at all the pictures that have been uploaded...the amount of people of color you can find in those pictures is All the people of color that that hire. Definitely a place where if you are a person of color and make it through the hiring process, they will make it hard for you and you won’t be there very long. Fun perks don’t make up for being treated humanely.

    We take every review seriously and are disheartened by your words and experience. We believe there is a significant disconnect between your experience and our intent and efforts we have in place to work toward inclusion. Our Inclusion and Social Impact team is passionate about connecting employees on the topics of diversity through small groups, community efforts, educational programs, events, and discussion groups. Some efforts include programs like vHue (our professionals of color) to provide social events, professional development, and community building opportunities to our employees of color. We have also implemented a nationally sourced diversity internship program for students of color and student Veterans to gain experience in the mortgage industry, the Columbia community, and the VU culture. We are committed to combating racial disparities in the workplace. We may not be perfect, but our hearts and values keep us committed to getting better each day. Please email inclusion@veteransunited.com with any comment you’d like to share, and allow us the opportunity to address your experience and ensure we continue growing toward inclusion.

    Pros

    True team work, true desire to make communities better, emphasis on giving back. Employ Extreme Programming - pair programming plus TDD with a whole way of life around it that works so well. Leaders lead by example and truly care about their people. Chain of command is responsive. Projects are fun. We even get Friday afternoons for Professional Development Time - work on your own project to improve a technical skill, then bring it back and apply it to VU projects. During the CCP Virus, management kept us very informed and they reassured us that they have a plan, that they have positioned themselves well from past experience, and that they have our backs. This place is so awesome!

    Cons

    Working toward permanently allowing WFH for technology workers, and I hope that comes to pass.

    Thank you for being here! The last few weeks/months have been challenging and different for a number of reasons. It's VUers like you who make it possible for other VUers to work from anywhere seamlessly. Thanks for staying positive and all the hard work!

    We are glad you enjoy the benefits, outings, and 401k contributions. However, your cons are concerning. We want to strongly encourage you to reach out to your team lead or AD if you are struggling and not getting the support you need. There are many other people who can serve as a resource for you, including but not limited to: director of production, production manager, a co-worker in HR, or a member of the culture team. We are committed to helping you feel supported but, as this is an anonymous review, we can’t do that unless we know who you are.
