Needs new management and better equity compensation

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at Encore Capital Group

ProsEncore has a young workforce, and the employees are friendly and fun to work with. For being in the collections industry, being able to live in San Diego is a plus. Salaries are about in the 50% percentile for local competitors and are decent, particularly for this industry.

ConsSenior Management lacks vision and has made bad investment and hiring decisions in the past. Management also seems to ignore or greatly discount potentially serious legal issues if revenues may be impacted as a result, which seems to undermine employee confidence in management and the company's future. Also, equity grants are reserved primarily for managers and executives, leaving entry and intermediate level employees with no incentive to work hard to raise the company's value.

Advice to Senior ManagementReplace key leadership positions with executives from venture funds or investment-based financial institutions that are aggressive but are used to a high amount of regulation and compliance. Take seriously the legal challenges and potholes highlighted by in-house lawyers. Be more generous with equity grants to all levels within the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
