    Pros

    Great opportunity to do work and gain experience
    Aside from the exec management, there are many great people

    Cons

    The Boston office is filled with people with big titles, big egos, little to no industry experience, and little to no technology experience that are highly demanding and not yet sure on the direction to take.
    The culture has NO respect for its employees and the workers, with people being fully expendable.
    The execs do not share information and are suspicious of everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees help the company grow, so why not treat them with respect and appreciate them?! Why not assign more resources to make things work? Why not hire Presidents and VPs that know what is going on, rather than throwing direction over the fence to India? Communication is a good thing, so why not share the vision?

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

    Pros

    Definite mission and goals, real revenue on current products with next generation product opportunities clearly defined (and needed). Senior management is very proactive, disciplined, and on top of industry trends.

    Cons

    Hours can be long, and it can be difficult to access information needed to identify improvements. The learning curve is steep, and most other employees are also new to the company and industry - making it hard to ramp up quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the rigorous, fast-paced new hire testing and selection process.

    Pros

    If you are an hourly employee you will have ample opportunities to work overtime.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is terrible. Most of the company is based offshore and you will surely have many headaches for this reason. There is little opportunity for career development as most of your time is spent just trying to keep up with your day to day tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so concerned with the bottom line. The company is experiencing outstanding growth as it is and your current staff cannot handle the influx of work. Hire some more people to help fix the problems you have. Avoiding them will cost you down the road.

    Pros

    Good work hours, pay was decent after a well needed raise

    Cons

    HR is terrible, Management is confusing and give no direction. Change happens on a minute basis and the people who need to know...never know. Male dominated company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the communication issues resolved and hire management that has actually worked in the field instead of someone that just has a degree.

    Pros

    Broad range of responsibilties provide great learning experiences
    In most cases, very competent and hard-working employees

    Cons

    Middle management team is severly understaffed
    Micro-management reduces opportunities for innovation and decreases speed-to-market
    Lack of loyalty by senior management to the leadership team
    Senior management prefers leading with a "stick" rather than a "carrot"
    All employees variable compensation rarely hits targets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Survey your culture and morale. Reach out to employees. Enable and support programs to enhance internal communications to employees. Evaluate how much you value your employees to reduce churn and preserve organizational memory.
