    Pros

    I understand that everyone needs different things from their employer, and to feel like they are being adequately rewarded by their work/job. Work environments or cultures can that can be exhilarating and empowering for some can often times be anathema to others; so please embrace your own personal subjectivity when reading this review. I’ve worked for Global Equity Finance for just under 5 years. I started in operations,...

    Cons

    Just as there are few structures holding you back, there are also few holding you up. It's not always easy to keep up with the grind of the industry, and admittedly GEQ doesn't provide the same safety nets that can keep you from failing in other environments. To really be successful here you need to be prepared to depend on your self to make it happen.

      I have been working at Global Equity Finance full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      I've been working at Global Equity for almost 3 years ago and I've loved my time here! I had very little mortgage experience when I first started, but I learned so much everyday and quickly caught on. After a short period of time and some hard work, I was given a promotion and the opportunity to learn a lot more about the industry! Another great quality about Global is the people and atmosphere throughout the company....

      No 401k option, but I'm sure the company will adopt an option soon.

      Pros

      I've worked at Global Equity for almost half a year now and one thing I can say is that I have grown so much within the company and with my coworkers. I currently work full time and to be honest, it doesn't even feel like I work the full 40 hours here most of the time. Work feels like such a breeze here. Within the short span of time I've worked here I have managed to get promoted twice. There are endless opportunities...

      Pros

      My time at Global Equity Finance has been, overall, a very positive experience. I felt like a part of the team immediately and many of the people here have become like family. This company stands out in comparison to other companies I have worked at. There are many reasons why but one is that the company is very team-oriented. If someone needs help with something, there is always someone there to help. Another thing...

      Cons

      The only downsides I can think of during my time at Global Equity would be the times the company had to let people go. We are all quite close here so when people leave the company it does change the feeling in the office. However, despite some of the losses, we always bounce back stronger than ever.

      Pros

      I started with Global Equity in a small role and was able to quickly elevate my position with hard work and dedication. I was given a clear goals and support which is awesome. The people at GEQ are really what set it apart, it is a team atmosphere with great people willing to bend over backwards to help each other. The company fosters this attitude which makes it a great place to be. The new office is very nice and...

      Pros

      The employees at GEQ genuinely enjoy coming to work everyday. This is not the type of place where people are watching the clock all day waiting for 5pm. Days are full of goal setting, new opportunities, challenges, and triumphs. There is no limit to the success that can be achieved here if you are willing to put in the hard work. Even difficult days are met with motivation and the support of your team. Daily team meetings...

      No 401k, but company is very young so this will certainly come with time when employees have more interest.

      Pros

      The company culture is strong, and the company definitely has a chance at success.

      Cons

      I have been employed here for almost a 1 year now and I went to talk with my manager and the human resources department about several problems with my job. Nothing was done. I was shrugged off and told everyone was too busy to deal with it. There are rumors of upper management doing hard drugs while on the job and it appears no one here has received any real training, down to the CEO. I am constantly belittled by managers...

        I worked at Global Equity Finance full-time

        Pros

        After being employed at Global Equity Finance for over a year, my experience at the company was decent/fair. I enjoyed the employees in the CSR department all being similar age, it was good energy on the floor. CSR manager/assistant manager did an exceptional job pushing the team to strive for success. Bagel Mondays were a plus as well as the beverage cart on Fridays.

        Cons

        The downfall of Global Equity Finance was having the mindset of not being able to grow within the company. The opportunity to flourish in the company was limited, unless you had good connections with the Loan Officers or CEO. Also, the meetings in the mornings were a absolute waste of time.
