Great people, good executive management, ethically challenging business model.

Technical Program Manager (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

ProsSome very high quality people work at Encore at all levels. Brandon, Jim and Manu are a great management team. This will be a solid business model as long as our economy is in trouble.

ConsEncore's main business is debt collection. Brandon Black, the CEO, once told a meeting of managers that even his conscious is bothered by the fact that the company makes money through the suffering of others.

The former CIO was fired due to "lack of confidence" and there has been a lot of turnover in the IT department due to political rivalries and a pay scale that is about 30% less than the local market. Ask them about turnover in the Business Intelligence team for a good example of their current situation.

    Looks Good But Be Careful

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    I worked at Encore Capital Group


    Pros: Encore wants to attract quality employees, and wants to change the bad reputation… Cons: Most of the management team is young and some lack discipline and finesse. Seems to be a high turnover in… Advice to Senior Management: Watch what is happening at all levels so that you can really appreciate those who are working hard even several levels below you… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
