Working At LendingTree

LendingTree is more than your normal mortgage company. With an online loan marketplace, LendingTree provides financial borrowing needs for auto loans, small business loans, personal loans, credit cards, and more. The company also provides a platform for customers to be able to compare auto and educational services.

LendingTree dates back to 1997, so they've been around for awhile. The company got its start after Founder Doug Lebda found himself in a game of running back and forth between different banks just to compare loans. So in an effort to make one platform to allow you to compare all of the loan rates, LendingTree began.

With the rise of the internet, that process was able to go online and the competition between banks grew stronger. The company prides itself on saving people money through this comparison process. And not only is the company focused on improving its customers' lives, but it also strives to create an open environment for its employees to feel welcome and appreciated.

Diving Into the Values at LendingTree

LendingTree prides itself on maintaining an entrepreneur spirit among its team members, while supporting a work/life balance. Through a collaborative environment and fun team offsites, the employees who work at LendingTree are truly some of the brightest around. This brilliance stems from the supportive atmosphere where employees are encouraged to take off enough time to feel recharged. With career opportunities in technology, marketing, sales and product management, there is a place for everyone at LendingTree. While everyone is working in different departments and taking on different responsibilities, there is one constant that is shared across the board. That constant is the list of 6 values that serves as the company's foundation. Those values are:

  • Build truly outstanding products: The products LendingTree employees build are created with the consumers and customers in mind. Most of the time, employees are helping these people through complex, important times in their lives. That's why employees are encouraged to find ways to brighten their experience through insight and clarity.
  • Be open and candid: This value was designed with a special emphasis on the company's successes and shortfalls. Everyone comes in each day knowing mistakes are part of the game. But they also know they need to learn from them. And when something succeeds, the team tries to learn from that as well by figuring out what made it successful.
  • Act with urgency and creativity: Team members are encouraged to think outside of the box when it comes to ideas.
  • Take charge: Employees at LendingTree make decisions and stand by those decisions. They propose clear courses of action. If that action is taking too long, they move on.
  • Set goals and be accountable: The environment at LendingTree is exciting and fast paced. Everyone works together to create successes and have an impact within the company.
  • Commit to excellence: Team members are pushed to live up to their full potential. From learning something new to becoming a leader, they're always looking for ways to improve themselves, while helping others realize their full potential.
  • The Culture at LendingTree

Since every employee is equally important to the success of LendingTree, everyone feels comfortable asking even the CEO questions.

    The culture at LendingTree is one that values your ability just as much (if not more) as your experience.

The work environment is very casual and laid-back with entrepreneurial undertones.

    The Benefits at LendingTree

    The Trees Here Are Made Out of Money

    The biggest focus at LendingTree is making sure the employees there are entirely happy. And with the list of benefits the company offers, that focus really shows. From daily catered lunches in Charlotte to in-house gyms with personal trainers, LendingTree really goes all out when it comes to job perks.

    Twice a year, employees at LendingTree enjoy a special boost to their bank accounts. Yeah, we're talking bonuses. The bonuses are administered to all of the employees for when the company hits its goals each quarter. In addition to financial rewards, employees also enjoy being recognized (but seriously, who doesn't enjoy a pat on the back?). If you're one who tends to go above and beyond, you're sure to shine at LendingTree. With the peer-nominated "Wow" awards, the "Getting Stuff Done" awards and regular Top Performer Recognition, those pats on the back come in all shapes and sizes.

    In addition to the gyms on campus and personal trainers, LendingTree really focuses on your wellness. With the fitness/wellness program, employees are provided with education, physical fitness programs, and other wellness events that are designed to boost employee health and satisfaction. And if your life is just too busy to workout, the personal trainers at LendingTree offer classes before, during and after work hours to fit whatever schedule you're working with. The company hosts several Wellness Fairs throughout the year, provides opportunities for you to get a flu shot and allows you to challenge your coworkers to a "Biggest Loser" contest.

    Some of the more normal benefits include 401k matching and unlimited vacation days. Another unique perk though is the innovative work environment you get to work in and the people you get to work with. With perks like these and an environment full of career opportunities, it's hard to not want to work at LendingTree.
