    Pros

    A BPO as usual, work stress and incentives would depend on the process you are in.

    Cons

    Lots: You can be terminated at any time of the day for no valid reason and if you're the lucky one - you don't even get to take your bags home. Their performance valuation is extremely unjust - they would rate you on parameters that would depend on the clients ability to complete the work (something you have no control over). There is a lot of internal politics.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the HR and Management: Employees are your assets and are not cattle. If you can understand this at a macro level, it will make a lot of difference at micro level.

    Pros

    Salary was good. Independence to work.

    Cons

    People don't know what product they are building and busy in drawing room. Engineers don't know what they are building.

    Advice to Management

    Have more developers who does actual work with lot of directors and less engineers it became a top heavy organization.

    Pros

    Above average salary and amazing peer group. Altisource is really selective in their selection and prefers only top B School grads for their MDP program.

    Cons

    Work tends to be repetitive. Also I feel that organization is a little bureaucratic at times. People are afraid to take chances as if one messes up he/she will be fired.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic to the goals that you set for the organization. I have been part of meetings where goals set were to capture 100% market share.

    Pros

    Bright coworkers. Many opportunities to grow. Interesting work, day-to-day--never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Penny wise, pound foolish decision-making. Lack of perspective by some members of executive management leads to the existence of unnecessary obstacles. Fear of those same execs prevents people from educating them to help the company thrive.

    Advice to Management

    You've dedicated many resources to building a company with lots of talent. Listen to the employees--they know the ground-level dynamics of the industry. Support them by giving them the resources they need to work effectively. Allow them do their jobs and the company will succeed!

    Pros

    There is nothing that this company offer you in terms of pros

    Cons

    everything... - The grey areas where they make maximum money and hence have attracted multiple legal cases in US - Unit level CEOs and management keeps changing once every year - job security is least; have fired 300 people from Bangalore itself - Managers can be good, can be bad...but I have mostly seen a pathetic lot here!

    Advice to Management

    u guys are way beyond repair!

    Pros

    Great company to learn new technology and gain knowledge Management gives almost a free hand to achieve the end objective the way we want. Flexibility to take work home - a lot of employees get option to come in early and leave after 9 hours only with the commitment that they will available as soon as they reach home

    Cons

    Very political environment Each department works as an independent company and projects/ programs spanning across multiple departments is very difficult to execute as there is very little collaboration across departments. Extremely stringent timelines for large scale projects impacting quality and breadth of product features All projects are driven by customer defined hard timelines. Project plans are always built backwards from the end date and not based on effort and scheduling.

    Advice to Management

    As a product company, extreme focus has to be put on product quality and strong architecture. Product features implemented should be robust even if that means less number of features. Product Management has to be decoupled from development management supervision, else technical challenges [difficult to implement features] will override product essential features [because stringent timelines will always remain] Stop firing people - they are your greatest assets.

    Pros

    Great minds. A lot of opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    Extremely fast pace. Staffing model does not align with business growth leading to stress, high expectations, chaos. Little appreciation and recognition for its people.

    Advice to Management

    Put time into developing your employees. Get good leadership and managers who are able to deal with the workload and effectively improve processes. Get staff the support needed to succeed.
