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

    Pros

    1. Pay.
    2. You can leave the company within 15 days if u resign within 3 months of joining. (This is what saved me)

    Cons

    I was part of a team called LRM in Consumer Analytics division.

     I shud have doubted them as soon as they agreed upon my expected CTC without even negotiating.
    I was wondering how on earth can a service company pay that much. Soon after joining and speaking with the director I realised their funda. Basically they target people from Gud product based companies with a nice JD, which is no where related to the work you would be doing and pay what ever they demand .
     I had seen the Glassdoor reviews before joining , which was very bad. But thought it might be only in some division. But trust me the reviews written are 200% true.
    The management thinks everything in the world is money. They expect employees to work and deliver from the first day 14 hours a day and also on weekends. And since they pay gud money they think people don't bother.

        Trust me 5 of us resigned within 15 days of joining and more followed. And we didn't had any offers. Still we cud not convince ourselves to stay there

      There will be no documentation or knowledge transfer or domain training. You r expected to deliver from day one.

    The behavior of management and HR are even pathetic. It can't be explained in words here. You will get a mail from hr and manager for petty things.

    Its a BPO . Its not at all a software company. You have to swipe in everyday, wear formals. Etc etc.

    You can see tens of people leaving everyday. That's why they have recruitment drives every weekend .

    Its not just with my division. Its the same with all the division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix all those mentioned in cons. Stop bevaing like a BPO and start acting like a product based company.
    And stop thinking that everything in this world is abt money. There is something called work life balance which you should understand the meaning of

    Pros

    Dynamic environment which provides an opportunity to learn and add value. Good salary, executive team is one of the best and does provide directions and mentoring

    Cons

    Too much work pressure and work life balance goes for a toss at times. Overall the work culture is good and relies only on performance so in a way, you write your own destiny

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to revisit the white board to design the new processes and think of engaging the teams in a way that they feel the ownership.

    I worked at Altisource full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Since it is relatively new in the current market segment, there definitely is a lot of potential both for the company and employees.

    Cons

    The fact that it is a relatively new set up, gives a lot of opportunity to organize certain aspects thus offering a very excellent platform to learn.

    I have been working at Altisource full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good salary, if you are pet to manager then good hike every year.

    Cons

    * Ocwen is the only client.
    * impossible dead lines.
    * They say they are Product based company, take my word its no were close to product based company..
    * No proper career path.
    * Useless HR team.
    * Worst managers and directors (In Consumer Analytic team).
    * Worst work culture.
    * They will say flexible work hours after joining they would expect you to work for more than 9 hours including weekends.
    * Don't join the company by just looking at the pay. it would be the dumbest decision of your life if you do that. (Specifically while joining to Consumer Analytic team).
    * Best place for butt kissers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating people like slaves. hope you are aware that you are hiring Engineers not people from magic school

    Pros

    Very hard to find positives where so much drama is on. Coffee and Tea is good.

    Cons

    Worst possible place to work. If you cannot find a job elsewhere, then this is your place. This is a BPO company masquerading as software development center. Your work performance is the least important thing here, but Political performance is important. Incompetent people hire even more incompetent people and now Bangalore center is full of them. If you work well, your manager will become insecure and will fire you. The US team is not aware of the worst things happening here.

    Most of the work is sham. QA team at least has well defined deliverables. Development team full of incompetent leaders who produce code that does not even work. Severe infighting exists among teams just to impress their bosses. Junior developers are actively prevented from voicing their opinions and concerns by senior leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up.
