Good place to work
I was with CMLS for 5 years and I have learnt a lot more than I would have if I worked at a similar position elsewhere. Lots of opportunities and interesting projects.
The management team are knowledgeable.They work really hard and do expect you to give it your best too.

Working overtime is not fun anywhere you work. My piece of advice is no matter what company you work for, if you are overloaded, discuss with managers before you decide this is not the job for you. At CMLS, overtime do happen from time to time, but not for all positions/department.

Every now and then, just like in any company, you will hear complaints about salary and compensations, but if you think you deserve more, negotiate professionally for it. And don't forget to think about bonuses, vacations and other benefits as a whole package.

But the people there was the toughest reason for me to leave. Everyone was so friendly to work with.


I thank CMLS for my career growth. It helped me find out what I am really good at and passionate about. It gave me a competitive advantage in the current job market.

Poor management
Poor leadership and communication. Very limited people to learn from so have to figure everything out by oneself. Stressful company to work for as no reporting or accountability in the company.

Egomaniacs 'R US
Company is in dire need of a management shake-up. Corp does not have enough people that can make decisions. Nothing is standardized. Everything is micro managed. Employee turnover is very, very high!
Pros
Free pop!
Cons
No internal promotions

It is a very good company with good people.
The people there were very nice. The view from the office was very beautiful. You can see the ocean and mountains from the windows. They provided very good facilities.

Fantastic learning environment
Spent the summer there as an associate to the VP of commercial and residential financing - learned how to conduct extensive market research and analysis in order to properly assess and underwrite loans and provide the recommended loan size to my boss in which case he would close the deal.

Stressful
It is a very stressful place to work with little pay compared to other companies. Some nice people here but majority of managers are very immature and egos driven. There is no proper annual raise. Review and feedback are all about fault finding mission. Strong nepotism.
