    Pros

    Management is very engaged with clients and make it a point to spend enough time with them to ensure the company understands their needs and requirements,

    Cons

    Sometimes senior management makes decisions with a short-term view in order to meet the pressure imposed by the quarterly reviews with the analysts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remain focused on your clients

    I worked at Lender Processing Services

    Pros

    The majority of employees have been there over 10 years. They definitely invest significant amounts of time and money into training and want their new employees to feel comfortable. They also invest time in team building activities that are actually fun.

    Cons

    If you have any kind of issues in your personal life (such as a child in daycare or a chronic illness), they are not sympathetic. They want the job to come first always and as such, the work life balance is null. Also, because many of the employees have been there for so long, there are little cliques and it can be difficult to fit in, which is even harder when you're trying to learn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't say what you don't mean. If you say, "we're flexible about X, Y, Z.", then you need to have that flexibility. Also, some managers protect their employees and some don't.

    I worked at Lender Processing Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Provided a job when I needed one. Met a few really great people. Transferring to other teams/groups can be difficult if the client or management doesn't want you to move.

    Cons

    I understand that this is a Software company and IT is all about supporting clients. With that being said, support contracts should be in place before implementation with a client. There were many nights where the client at 4pm says I need this in - and we must make modifications. These were not production issues. Management also expects weekend plans to be cancelled and do not understand - but 'I've already paid out $$$ and am unable to get a refund'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Any manager that understood work-life balance is no longer with the company. Figure out how to provide work-like balance. If an employee is required to work on a weekend - figure out how to compensate them. Salary should be comparable to industry.

    Pros

    If you are desperate for employment, this would be an option. Last resort.

    Cons

    Cut throat business. It is all in how you suck up to management.
    Expected to shut up and do as you are told.
    Loss of independent freedom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get management that walks the walk and not just talk the talk. Management flips on a dime. Don't expect for them to have your back, because they won't; those that have, are no longer working for the company. What does that tell you? No one stands up for anyone's rights here, it's all about doing exactly as your told to do and nothing else!

    Pros

    Before the layoffs started, the environment was relaxed and a fun place to work. Supervisors were very encouraging and did their best to help out their workers. Work experience you gain is valuable because you interact with clients over the phone and via email. You also get office experience. It is very easy to get hired here. As long as you have a college degree, you are almost guaranteed to be hired if they like you. The potlucks we did were a lot of fun. Annual perks for employees include: free Pirates game, Thanksgiving dinner, and $100 gift card.

    Cons

    No pay raises whatsoever. Company had not given a pay raise for 5 years when I joined the company in 2013. You could see the effect this had on some people's motivation after a while. When work got busy, they would give out mandatory overtime. Company often seemed more concerned with numbers than quality of production. There is nowhere to move up the ladder in this company except for the few supervisor positions they have, and as a result, turnover was pretty high for an office job. When the layoffs started, the environment became tense and cliques formed among different groups of employees. Supervisors developed favorites but tried to fake that they appreciated everyone the same. (The only one who didn't do this was the document preparation team supervisor. He was probably the best manager/supervisor in the entire office because of how fair and genuine he was.) The manager of the escrow department would inform everyone during the layoffs in carefully worded emails that they were all safe while layoffs continued almost every week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees perform well when they are well compensated. As long as people know that they can earn a raise if they perform well, they will do so. I would advise giving out annual raises to all employees based on performance. Second, don't lie to the employees and tell them that their jobs are safe when if fact you have plans to lay people off.

    They tend to have a limited number of good clients. Which is a downfall when you are on production work.

    Pros

    You can really learn a lot here at least in the IT perspective. The company has a mixed environment of old and new equipment on the company network overall so you can literally go as far as you want to learn technology and practices. Depending on your department the people are very nice and supportive. There are a lot of people who have worked for the company for literally decades and throughout ALL of the times the company has changed names and owners. If you decide to pursue a position here be sure to negotiate for salary at least two years out because they will Low Ball.

    Cons

    The IT department takes pride in having people who work there for decades however, those same people feel like they cannot leave because they feel they're too old to move on and no one would hire them which is the real reason people tenure is so long. There is a lot of work to go around mainly because processes here in IT are the absolute WORST I have ever seen. These bad processes cause a lot of work to be done on Sunday's, constant morning changes and just plain chaos and confusion all day long!!! Every month there is some new process that makes work life unenjoyable and combined with well over 80 hours every two weeks with no extra pay makes the position not worth it. Schedules change very often leaving you to decide between your dependents or the job which isn't a good feeling especially when it constantly happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES AND QUIT ACTIING LIKE MANAGEMENT IS THE END ALL BE ALL!!!!! Create some processes that are not so time consuming and dependent on WHO is requesting particular jobs. Processes are HORRIBLE at work and HORRIBLE for the employee home life.
