    Pros

    Flexibility is key. They make changes to both operations and the platform on a regular basis. Improvement is important to them. You must be flexible to work there since things are always changing.

    Cons

    Change is also a challenge as it takes time to adjust to the changes and work out the kinks, so you must be flexible to be able to keep up and not get frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    When making the changes, consider what is best for the customer as well as the company. Let the changes stay in place long enough to work out the bugs and determine if it is a good solution.

    Pros

    - Many new external hires that are eager to help the company prosper. - Compensation and benefits are getting better - Irvine HQ is in a great location, lots of nearby shops and restaurants

    Cons

    - Cube farm, not a lot of office interaction - Old technologies used, need to "freshen up" and build cutting edge solutions for partners - Medical benefits could be better

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused, make us proud and get us back to the HireRight that we all loved!

    Pros

    Good people. Respect for teammates. Great new leadership team that is visionary and knows how to execute. Passionate C levels. Appreciation for teammate's work/life balance. You can help someone get hired!

    Cons

    Lots of changes in recent years. Although getting stable and projected for even more rapid growth.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be visible to the organization. Recognize talent. Continue to communicate. Invest in more team building.

    I have been working at HireRight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, option to work from home in some cases, generous vacation/benefits package, decent compensation, overtime available if you want it.

    Cons

    Not very challenging, a lot of work is repetitive & monotonous, hardly any recognition for hard work or a job well done, upper management is disorganized and has a fly by the seat of their pants mentality about processes/guidelines, which causes a lot of chaos - nobody knows the proper procedure for anything because it changes from week to week. Makes for a very frustrating work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to the employees who work for you. The upper management folks that I've dealt with are not nice people. In fact, a few are outright rude. They would work their employees to death for no pay if they could get away with it. Please, please show a greater appreciation (and some common decency) toward your employees.

    I worked at HireRight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relatively nice people to work with, but too many people just going through the motions due to the lack of clear direction coming from the Leadership team.

    Cons

    No clear strategy coming from the top, too much uncertainty from BK of Parent Altegrity.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a new CEO
