National Mortgage Professional Magazine is proud to announce its annual list of Top Mortgage Employers. We polled our readers about their employers based on the following criteria: Compensation, Speed, Marketing support, Technology, Corporate culture, Long-term strategy, Day-to-day management, Internal communications, Training resources, Industry participation, and Innovation.
Based the above criteria, we weighted factors that are more important to our readers (i.e. our readers told us that factors like corporate culture was considerably more important to them than speed of company), collected votes and factored in industry reputation to create a list of 2020’s Top Mortgage Employers.
