    Pros

    Plenty of room for advancement and they hired from within. Overall was a great place to work, until they filed bankruptcy and sold off to FNF.

    Cons

    Company was not ready for the decline of the real estate market - cost a lot of people their jobs. Senior management made poor decisions. Odd, everyone could see the end coming, except for the big wigs that steered the company in the wrong direction.

    Advice to Management

    Should have made better decisions putting the company in a better position for when the market started to turn. Our 3 biggest competitors were able to stay afloat - no reason why we shouldn't have.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Very, very nice people - easy to get along with. Entrepreurial spirit. Get it done - find a solution mentality.

    Cons

    Low pay. Unfocused senior management - they don't do a great job of explaining where the ship is going or how it's going to get there. Entrepreneurial spirit sometimes translates into lack of organization and communication.
    Things could be more professional in how they are managed. Basically it's amateur hour. Promises and deadlines are not kept and then there are no consequences from senior managers.
    The more senior managers have a bit of a SUPERMAN mentality. They have to be present for all decisions and they have to be the ones that make it.
    Bottomline - it's amateur hour. Sometimes it feels like they are just managing by whim and playing at business.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy and stay with it. Stop making things a highest priority one quarter then abandoning it the next.

    Become more professional. Enforce some management discipline. Business is too dificult to just make things up as you go along.
