    ProsSmall company that responds quickly to market changes; in general, good work life balance

    ConsSenior management tends to have trouble staying focused on long-term strategic goals; frequent re-orgs (often to correct problems arising from the last re-org); poor record of rewarding high performers; limited opportunity for promotion/career growth; benefits are slightly below average compared to peers

    Needs new management and better equity compensation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsEncore has a young workforce, and the employees are friendly and fun to work with. For being in the collections industry, being able to live in San Diego is a plus. Salaries are about in the 50% percentile for local competitors and are decent, particularly for this industry.

    ConsSenior Management lacks vision and has made bad investment and hiring decisions in the past. Management also seems to ignore or greatly discount potentially serious legal issues if revenues may be impacted as a result, which seems to undermine employee confidence in management and the company's future. Also, equity grants are reserved primarily for managers and executives, leaving entry and intermediate level employees with no incentive to work hard to raise the company's value.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace key leadership positions with executives from venture funds or investment-based financial institutions that are aggressive but are used to a high amount of regulation and compliance. Take seriously the legal challenges and potholes highlighted by in-house lawyers. Be more generous with equity grants to all levels within the company.
