    Pros

    Decent Pay package Nothing else

    Cons

    Constant Job insecurity. My own story is, I was hired as a senior manager and given no task. There was one Director who was fired. That person never gave me a job and when it came to making me a permanent employee after 3 months HR team came from nowhere and starting a discussion as such I have not done anything in three months and I have to resign. Very bad managers. You have to be a rotten person to deal with ones that are rotten there. I would like to mention few names but it will be bad on my ethics. But one suggestion to the folks who wants to join, please take an offer from them and start shopping elsewhere and join to some other company unless you are desperate without a job. Please don not join this company. Every day you will land up in job insecurity. So called managers are all useless. Be aware with this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don not hire unless there is a requirement.

    Pros

    There is none, unless you count tasty Tea Coffee.

    Cons

    This place reminds you of ancient Kings and Noble Men. The palace is full of intrigue and infighting.
    If the Noble-Man does not like you, you will be fired. Your performance does not matter.

    Your firing will be cleverly done. You will be accused of something, and fake evidence will be created against you and then you will be fired.

    More than 300 were fired recently. These were not non-performers, but they were all the people who were not favorites of the Noble-Men. So, if you had some fancy idea that by good-performance i can survive, be ready for a shock.

    Various departments are structured with directors n such at the top, and rest of the soldiers underneath. There is very little co-operation between these departments. Each trying to shout-down others with noisy emails, and declaration that they are making a fancy product that will wipe out world poverty. In reality, everyone is clueless and biding their time.

    The hiring is very intellectual in nature. After psychology and qualitative test - you will be at the mercy of a random interviewer. For all senior position, a Noble-Man will take a close look at you. You should be well-rounded, no sharp edges of intelligence.

    I worked at Altisource full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Plans to implement big projects in future and merge with Altisource Labs
    Flexi timings
    Free Cabs

    Cons

    -You can be fired anytime. It's a serious issue in this company. All the employees are fearing this. MASS layoffs happened in January. Around 300 from the technology division were fired in one single day.
    -Employees are hired for future projects and not for any ongoing project which might or might not come.
    -Stock values are not rising as expected. So expect that this once Top 20 fastest company to be very unsuccessful or even shut down in the near future. All the current are just waiting for the appraisals to happen and the look elsewhere.
    -I didn't work even in one single live project for 5 months. Was just part of a new project that didn't kick off in time. Be very careful of this.
    -Although the company provides free transport, don't expect it to be world class. Cab services are below par.
    -Since call centre people are part of the same organization, professionalism isn't that high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -DON'T HIRE PEOPLE AND THEN FIRE THEM IMMEDIATELY BECAUSE SOMEONE SOMEWHERE COMMITTED A FRAUD(in this case the parent company OCWEN committed fraud).
    -Make sure you have projects and then hire.
    -Just because cab service is free that doesn't mean you can take it for granted.

    I worked at Altisource

    Pros

    Salary one time, Facility is good.

    Cons

    Lot of favouritism and if your manager likes you then you can get away with a lot of things and get a hike and promotion too. Struggling with a lot of vintage folks who are pulling the company down because they cannot get a job else where.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up. You need to throw some of your folks out who are pulling the entire firm down.
