    Former Employee - Senior Software Developer in Boston, MA

    I worked at Altisource full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Deep pockets, lots of new technologies to play with (if you're lucky enough to work in the right department), great co-workers, lots of technical talent, semi-startup environment.
    If you ever wondered how it would be to work for an off-shore company, but were afraid to move to India, your wait is over. Apply for a job with Altisource in Boston and the experience will be yours to have. Place is full of cultural diversity. H-1 visa applicants are strongly encouraged to apply and well represented in the Altisource workforce.
    Great place to brush up on foreign accents.

    Cons

    - Lack of leadership. Example: competing projects lead to conflicts between already alienated locations (Atlanta vs. Boston). Poor understanding of target technologies by senior technical management leads to indecisive management style.
    - Lack of vision. If you build it they will come. Build something... anything... throw it up against the wall and see if it sticks. Business requirements? Say what? Come up with your own feature set and run with it.
    - Poor communication skills. Low-level management lacks basic communication skills. A lot of can be attributed to cultural differences.
    - Pretend-startup look and feel. Smoke screen to entice college grads from ivy league schools to come onboard. Not too many publicly traded startups with Indian roots out there to compare against, so perhaps I am wrong about this one...
    - Antiquated development environment. Locked down and tightly controlled workstations. Low-end Windows laptops as cost saving measure. Never mind simple math: number of builds a day TIMES number of minutes spent waiting for slow build TIMES number of developers = REAL WASTE OF MONEY
    - Poor facilities. Lack of permanent office space. Constantly on the move from one location to another.
    - Too many chiefs and not enough indians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire from within your personal circle of friends to cultivate already successful company culture. Clamp down more on development environment to encourage technological innovation. Hire at least one US citizen for every H-1 visa employee to introduce more cultural diversity.
