    Pros

    Excellent company to learn a great deal of information.

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

    Cons

    This 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 ManagementAdvice

    To attract top applicants, you must pay a premium.

    Pros

    New 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.

    Cons

    Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

    Toot 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!

    Pros

    Generous Bonus payments
    Good salary
    Benefit package upgraded is now the best
    11 public holidays
    Above average vacations
    Great opportunities to transfer internally (domestic and international)

    Cons

    Hard work and occasional long hours.
    Sometimes, supervisors get so wrapped up in their own work they dont take the time to mentor junior staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the growth of Situs and the change in management we have seen a very pleasant change. Please keep it going.

    Pros

    Tremendous exposure to all aspects of the Real Estate Market. Small company doing Really Big things. Smart Management with a firm grasp on the industry.

    Cons

    Pay and promotions seem to be based on politics. Working weekends are expected. Weak IT decisions may have seriously crippled the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job on growing the company. To keep growing you may want to upgrade to a enterprise level system and give higher compensation than your competitors.
