    ConsPay was not what I asked for

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey filed bankruptcy & closed down

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It was a nice place to work, but the company was not run well for a declining market.

    Branch Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsPlenty 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.

    ConsCompany 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 Senior ManagementShould 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.

    ok experience

    Customer Service (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat HR deparment that are always available. Great at communicating information to their employees. Opportunity to learn more by providing learning resources.

    ConsPay is not great and the cost of health insurance seems high. The raises are very low to non-existent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter response to the needs of employees concerns. Improvement of pay and better opportunity to advance within the company.

    Nice people - but it's amateur hour when it comes to managing and accomplishing things.

    Product Manager (Current Employee)

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

    ConsLow 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 Senior ManagementPick 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.
