ProsExcellent company to learn a great deal of information.

Your work and effort is noticed and rewarded with more responsibility.

ConsThis company has gone through numerous layoffs in the past couple years. Some deserving some not. The pay is low considering the work load you are expected to handle.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo attract top applicants, you must pay a premium.

Hasn't been called The Situs Companies for a over 2 years now, new ownership. Called Situs now.

I have been working at Situs full-time for more than 5 years

ProsNew owner is mortgage legend Lewis Ranieri. Old owners where disconnected and irrelevant, no wonder poor reviews. Company has expanded aggressively in US and Europe over past two years and is market leader in outsourced due diligence and retained risk loan servicing and asset management. Client list represents top banks and private equity firms globally. Situs is a good place for those looking for career exposer and an opportunity to learn.

ConsPoor reputation of prior owners have been challenge for company recruiting in Houston. Company has 11 offices in US and Europe.....culture is progressive, educational and supportive. wish there was a direct program for equity ownership by employees, although deferred comp plan put in place in '12 is a big step in the right direction.

Advice to Senior ManagementToot your own horn a little more. You guys survived the greatest market downturn in modern history, and came back stronger than you were before. good job, glad to be part of the team!
