Academy Mortgage Named a Best Place to Work in 2018 by Glassdoor—the Only Home Loan Lender to Make the List

Draper, Utah, December 6, 2017—Academy Mortgage has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2018. Academy ranks #18 on the list of large companies, which includes household names like Facebook, Bain & Company, In-N-Out Burger, and Google. Furthermore, Academy Mortgage is the only home loan lender on the list of 100. The company’s overall rating is 4.5 out of 5, with more than 350 reviews.

The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its 10th year, relies solely on the input of employees, who voluntarily and anonymously elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments, and companies via Glassdoor.

“We can’t thank our employees enough for sharing their reviews of Academy on Glassdoor,” said Academy Mortgage CEO Adam Kessler. “Companies that have employees who love where they work are more productive and more engaged. This translates into a competitive advantage when it comes to attracting and retaining talent. Further, this award is a symbol of our employees’ belief in our commitment to excellence and our vision to Inspire Hope, Deliver Dreams, and Build Prosperity.”

When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, senior management, as well as culture and values. Academy employees cite the company’s family culture, focus on work/life balance, community service initiatives, and myriad of company benefits as reasons for their high satisfaction working for Academy.

The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by employees between November 1, 2016 and October 22, 2017. To be considered for the large category, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 75 ratings across eight workplace attributes. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality, and consistency of reviews.
