    The Environment Is Improving; The Technical Team Is Brilliant

    Engineering Director (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsThere are two sides to Altisource - the servicing side and the technology side. I can only speak to the technology side - specifically Altisource Labs.

    1) Altisource (and Ocwen) is sitting on a pile of cash and they are not afraid to invest. They actively hiring, and they hire only top talent.

    2) The technology is leading edge.

    3) The technical team is incredibly bright and very effective.

    4) The management team recognizes the need for changes to improve the culture here, and they are actively working to make those changes.

    5) There is a lot of upside here - both in terms of career growth and wealth generation. Altisource Labs is being set up as a well funded incubator company. It has many of the advantages of the start up with benefits of a long-term investor backing it.

    Cons1) Achieving work life balance is a challenge. It's doable, but starting out of the gate it will be pretty nuts.

    2) When Altisource Labs opened an office in Boston almost a year ago, the execution of that decision and how it was communicated to the Atlanta office was handled very poorly. It was very sudden with no follow up, and it left the Atlanta-based team with the impression that they were going to be shut down. This led to a downward spiral in employee morale in Atlanta and an exodus of talent. This is the single greatest issue that has affected the perception of Altisource Labs in the Atlanta area.

    3) Altisource Labs hired a bunch of people with experience that was exclusively from start ups, but Altisource Labs is not a pure start up. They are a large company with all of the standard bureaucracy when it comes to infrastructure. This - coupled with the fact that much of the IT support is based in India (making it harder to access), was very frustrating to the people with start up experience.

    4) Historically, Altisource Labs has not handled interviews well - especially for technologists. The interviewee has to run a pretty serious gauntlet of tests coupled with a rigorous panel interview. After a significant investment of time and energy to jump through all of the hoops, the candidate may not get hired and is provided very little feedback.

    Issue #4 has been acknowledged and is actively being addressed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe willing to celebrate the small victories. Culturally, from the very top, this doesn't happen much, but I see change happening at the next level down. Perfect execution is a great goal to target but an unrealistic standard to place on the organization in terms of expectations.

    When a team hits a home run or even a double, they need to get high-fives from the executives instead having those wins being taken for granted as meeting expectations.
