Loan Review Officer Reviews

What is it like working as a Loan Review Officer?

Loan Review Officer in Eugene:
"Work flexibility."
Pros: As a loan review officer I like that I'm helping my company to reduce risk and identify problem loans early. The work is flexible and gives me the opportunity to take on other responsibilities and projects. With the ALLR management, I like to be a part of analyzing and establishing loss rates for current and future loans to also help my company minimize risk.
Cons: Loan review officer can get mundane reading loan after loan. I do have to remind myself that I'm helping the greater good of the bank. Sometimes I'm also not the most favorite person in the bank if I need to downgrade a loan or point out problems in loan approvals to loan officers. ALLR management is getting more and more difficult in justifying the current levels of reserves. Q & E factors are a challenge; examiners want you to quantify a subjective (per guidance) process, but the more you quantify, the less subjective it gets and they want support for the quantification. It's a thin like to walk to maintain subjectivity and some flexibility in management's decisions, but to quantify enough to satisfy examiners.
