    Pros

    good vacation and sick time, 401K and nice stock plan. Co-workers aresome of the best co-workers I have ever met!

    Cons

    long corporate hours and you are on a clock- clock in, clock out. Work isn't steady. Some days there is nothing to do and others I am racing around. The days with nothing to do are LONG as sitting from 8:30-5:30 with nothing to do is a very long time.

    Pros

    Working for this company can be fruitful and bountiful if you are within the business itself as part of a profit center. The rewards can be monthly, quarterly, bi-annually and annually. There can even be bonuses that happen after specific projects or exemplary actions for the success of the business.

    Cons

    The very "Pros" of the company are the "Cons" if on the "wrong-side of the house" - that is to say, anything but the business side. After nearly a decade of working within technology and noting the way minor staff to senior management are ignored and neglected after months of planning and execution on "COST SAVINGS" initiatives without any bonus or financial reward. The business can abuse and burn money and then leave it in the hands of the core business and infrastructure & technology employees to pick up the pieces of the executive management and business branch's haphazardly way of business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best advice I could give to management would more than likely be ignored because the systematic methodology of William Foley, also known as Bill, to acquire a business and take all of the profitable components of the business and strip it off to sell and leave the carcass of the previous business behind to wilt and fail after being sold off for pennies on the dollar.

    Investors will love to see how the parent holding company, Fidelity National Financial, will fluctuate with profit on acquiring a great asset but other investors should be terrified if they hear that FNF is in the process of acquiring a stock they own. Employees of that business would be wise as well to listen to the tell-tale signs of acquisitions and find another job as soon as possible because sadly, upon acquisition, the company will be torn apart.

    If this paints a positive picture in your eyes management, then there is no advice I can give. If it does not, then think about "the long-term plan" and how "steady" gains can be more reputable to stock holders AND employees than the "wheel and deal" methods that presently exist. Your investors will be more consistent and they will hold the stock long-term as opposed to selling it all the moment their is rumor and or speculation of business decline. Recognize that the company can utilize its capital more effectively, and reward those that find those solutions in acquiring it AND utilizing it effectively afterwards.

    Change the existing dogma of the executive brand to only reward the business that creates revenue initially but lack the foresight maintain that profitable financial trend. Take trips or coordinate teleconferences with each of the regions and speak with both the business & technology branch managers to determine the health of the title industry on a quarterly basis. Sustainability is the key to success and if the business can maintain the working staff it has consistently, it can react more quickly and effectively in a time of increased business instead of acquiring inexperienced people to enact upon those upward trends.
