    Pros

    Compensation was generous, reviews were fair, HR was gerenally responsive to employee complaints, promotions are frequent. Overall, company has a great culture and a comfortable yet challenging environment. The workforce tends to be younger (lots of 20 and 30 somethings moving into the San Diego area) and it is a great place to work from a social standpoint.

    Cons

    Occassional poor hiring and firing decisions are made with respect to management. Health insurance benefits are less than desirable and decrease further every couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide stock or equivalent benefits to a broader group of employees.

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

    Pros

    Some 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.

    Cons

    Encore'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.
