Atlantic Coast Mortgage, a Virginia-based mortgage lender offering both forward and reverse mortgage products, was named one of the best places to work in the Washington D.C. area as determined by the eighth annual Top Workplaces survey conducted by the Washington Post. The survey, conducted in partnership with employee engagement firm Energage, LLC, asked employees in the area about the companies they work for in an effort to identify 200 of the highest ranked workplaces in the region.
2021’s honorees include government contractors, real estate firms, professional and business services, law firms and tech companies. Over 3,500 area companies were invited to participate and 413 were surveyed, with the top companies having been selected based on survey responses from more than 65,000 employees on a variety of relevant topics.
Atlantic Coast Mortgage, established in 2011 and operating out of Fairfax, Va., is ranked #25 on a list of 76 mid-sized companies with between 150 and 500 local D.C.-area employees.
“I love ACM because the company takes care of us and shows their appreciation by sending fun gifts and making sure we have a balanced work and home life,” an employee said in the survey according to the Post.
The spotlight on these organizations by the Post is expected to include details about how such companies were impacted by the global and national events of the last year, particularly as it pertains to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
“Today’s edition of The Washington Post will also include a special Top Workplaces magazine, which includes a cover story on how employees and corporate leaders at the 200 Top Workplaces firms have been reshaped by the events of the past 15 months and will return to their offices with new attitudes on flexibility, mental health and equity, profiles of four local leaders on how the events of the past year have changed their organizations, and a look at how workplace conversations will change going forward after the racial reckoning and social change movements of the past year,” the Post said in its announcement of the honorees.
Atlantic Coast was previously listed on the same survey for companies honored by the outlet in 2018, according to a press release issued at the time. In terms of its reverse mortgage offerings, Atlantic Coast Mortgage offers conventional Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) loans as well as “jumbo” proprietary options for borrowers with home values up to $4 million.
