    Pros

    Great benefits, work from home, decent coworkers and mid-level managers

    Cons

    Couldn't seem to figure out what role they wanted in the market and ended up laying off most of the department. Has ended up sending a lot of jobs to India. Do I really want to do be a consumer supporting a company who doesn't care about US workforce? Nope.

    Advice to Management

    Don't bite off more than you can chew

  2. Great people and benefits

    Pros

    People were nice and management were very friendly.

    Cons

    Seems like this company will not last long lay offs and the current employees have to pick up the slack due to Landsafe not wanting to hire new people to help with the work load.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire some more people the current employees there are working hard with little help.

  3. Good experience, but stayed too long.

    Pros

    I worked with some amazing people there and I learned a lot about real estate valuation from the institutional side.

    Cons

    Ultimately, poor leadership led to LandSafe having a product that wasn't worth what it cost to make. Too much management and poor oversight/training caused this. Growth in technology in this market created many products that could provide similar services at a much lower price and the company was not able to adapt.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late now.

  6. Great pay, benefits. Poor advancement or job training.

    Pros

    The pay and team environment were the only reasons I stayed as long as I did. The benefits offered to employees were also adequate for our share of the expenses.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Management was constantly letting you know what you needed to do to move up, but when you consistently demonstrated those traits, there was never any positions opened up. Requests to transfer out were routinely denied for no reason.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Landsafe was experience.

    Cons

    The down side to working at Landsafe was full time/part-time availbility.

    Advice to Management

    Working in teams is great advice.

    Pros

    Casual Environment. Team Leads are knowledgeable and helpful. Team culture where people do pitch in to help one another. Ability for associate to take on the degree of responsibility with which they are comfortable.

    Cons

    Rules are many and often confusing and petty. Company employs hundreds but does not seem to keep a database of employees and skills. Does not hire from within.

    Advice to Management

    Look employee skills in different departments before you look outside to hire.

  9. Stressful, with long hours, secrecy, misleading management, worst employer ever.

    Pros

    They offer alot of shift choices, from early morning shifts to grave yard shifts. - They have an ergonomics team

    Cons

    Alot of favoritism - Management is not accountable for their actions - Management is poorly qualified - Alot of dress code violations(as in people coming to work dressed for a club) - The "Free" coffee is only rationed out to some people -

    Advice to Management

    Chose people that actually know what they are talking about and doing to be managers. Don't just pick friends off the street.

  11. They have competitive compensation for fee appraisers but lack congratulatory communication and have harsh penalties.

    Pros

    They provide fair compensation in an industry where fairness is a low priority and the bottom line of the company trumps all in an absurd fashion. They are an AMC (appraisal management company).

    Cons

    The penalty for fee panel appraisers can include suspensions for 6 months or a year based on reviews of your work from individuals outside your market area. The feedback is minimal and your responses to the reviews are analyzed by the same person who is recommending that you be reprimaned (lacks checks and balances) this gives the impression of a lack of fairness without a focus towards development.

    Advice to Management

    The management should provide feedback to the fee panel, and a equitable distribution of assignments within the tier system rather than the adverstised order system.
