Working at the Plano office of Countrywide

Quality Assurance Analyst (Former Employee) Plano, TX (US)

ProsThe only reason I would ever want to work at Countrywide again would be the fact that they got bought out by Bank of America. The company name "Bank of America" would be a good stepping stone for people to move into smaller companies with better pay.

ConsI could go on forever about how terrible this place was. The managers never had any work to do, yet they tried to act like they were really busy. The same went for most of the employees here. We were given lots of "drive around the parking lot" work. I felt like I was becoming dumber every day I went in. The work that we were given was hardly ever challenging. The salary and bonuses were also terrible. I would avoid this place at all costs. Bank of America made a dumb move in acquiring this run down company.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut down the number of VPs and SVPs you have in the company. A 3 to 1 employee to manager ratio is just ridiculous.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
