    I worked at Altisource

    Pros

    There is the potential to drive process improvement and new business opportunities

    Cons

    Due to the hiring process, at all levels of the organization the workforce is overpopulated with many very smart, socially awkward, self-absorbed associates. Every organization need some of these types, but not a majority. These hiring practices create a culture where there is a lack of effective cross-organization cooperation and leadership resulting in deficiencies in communication, management and execution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the hiring process, focus on associate engagement

    I worked at Altisource full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Money was fine, good hardware, nice office, nice people

    Cons

    Disorganized, unable to bring successful products to market, very top heavy management team, only 3 of 6 service offerings ever made it out of development and of those, only 2 are still in operation. Disappointed, thought it was going to be better. layoffs have occurred twice.

    I worked at Altisource

    Pros

    Maybe earlier there would have been some but now I dnt think anything like pros for this company back of my mind.

    Cons

    Doesn't stick to the offer given to the offered employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been offered from this company few months ago but just a day before my joining, I got to know that my joining date have been postponed after few days I got to know the particular position for which I have been offered is on hold. I Had resigned from my previous company and all of sudden became jobless because I wasn't been informed about this earlier. HR Managers washed there hands off saying that they not sure about the role( who basically referred me for this role and interviewed ). This is so unprofessional that these people sitting on managerial level are not even bothered about how a resource will survive whom you guys made a jobless just because of your carelessness. PEOPLE PLZ DNT JOIN ALTISOURCE

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    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.
