    I worked at National Bankruptcy Services full-time

    Pros

    NBS has been setting the standards in the Bankruptcy industry regarding Mortgage and Consumer clients for over 20 years.

    Cons

    With the change of ownership, came a change in overall review of the company. Senior managements focus on month goals only, has lost the overall appeal of what the company values were. They lost focus on their number 1 asset, their employees. Due to that loss, everyone loses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review on what has made the company successful over the past 20 years, and continue to build on that. Without value to your employees, you end up with a non-productive company.

    Pros

    There are no pros to working at this company. If you want a job to just have a job, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Training structure is almost non-existent and is also the most disorganized that I have ever seen in a company. Benefits are terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider improving office culture by valuing your employees' input and suggestions. Provide more organized training so that your employees are able to succeed in their job responsibilities.

    Former Employee - Legal Assistant, Doing the Work of A Paralegal in Dallas, TX

    I worked at National Bankruptcy Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay was decent. Overtime is where you make your money.

    Cons

    No reviews, (it took 2 years for 1 review that was supposed to have happened) Too many "buddies" brought in to be management to "fix" the problems and they just created more work. There was no work life balance. If you wanted to stay on top of your work load, you worked evenings and weekend. And even then, that was never enough.
    No room for advancement, people would throw you under the bus to save their own skin faster than you can say HI. And the ethics used by some of the attorneys was less than stellar. Once the management that is in place now took over, they started to run that firm into the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES - they are the ones doing the actual WORK. Not management. All they do is run all these reports and tell you how bad a job you are doing, despite the fact you give your all.
    And bring back the classes on bankruptcy that they had a couple years ago. Those were VERY informative. Especially for people who had 0 clue what they were doing. They actually learned a little about their job and why they were doing what they were doing!

    Pros

    Very independent work flow. Very little supervision required.

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities, mandatory overtime hours, nights and weekends, poor pay incentives for tenured employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Operations managers and associates need to push work to all areas of the business in a timely manner opposed to pushing a months worth of work in 2 days to meet deadlines. Take care of the foundation of the company; the people that put in the time and effort with little to no recognition and the worst ridicule for mistakes.

    Pros

    At one time, opportunities existed for knowledgeable and loyal employees to advance. Employees learn a lot about bankruptcy.

    Cons

    Upper management and investors have laid off so many knowledgeable employees that the business cannot possibly rebound from financial troubles fast enough to save itself. It will be years before remaining employees are able to replace the experts that have disappeared. Considering the executives that are left only promote back-stabbing, lying white males to prominent positions, most people currently employed don't qualify for any prominent positions anyway. The executives are so hung up on themselves and people who are just like them that the business will eventually implode. Employees that are left cannot keep up with the work, so the work keeps disappearing. Clients are leaving. Eventually, we won't need any employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only way to save this company is to get rid of all the current executives and bring back the major talent that we once had. Those talented people cared about the company, understood the processes and made things happen. Many of them know what it would take to get the company turned around and, if it's possible for it to be done, they would achieve it. Advice to investors: Those executives don't tell lies in only one direction - You are hearing them, too.

    Pros

    Pay is ok along with annual raises and ok benefits. MOST co-workers are awesome

    Cons

    Management don't know what or want to listen or learn what you do but expect so much to be done in an unreasonable time, no communication with clients, management or some associates so everything is always all over the place. The lack of communication ALWAYS causes "Special Projects" that take you away from your own pile of work and its something that could have been avoided had they just listened to their employees "the ones that are doing the work" the first time. No room for growth unless you kissing butt cause working YOUR butt off don't count, you have about 10 different bosses telling you to do different things and they have horrible training techniques. Management talks crazy about you to other associates so its messy all the way to the top. Also, back stabbing employees to get to the top. They don't want you to learn the ins and outs of the business they just want you to get the work done and expect you to work till midnight or 1am to do it towards the end of the month at times. If you just need money and want to sit down at a computer all day without talking to customers, work here but look for something else real soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. They're the ones doing the work and facing the challenges. Take up for them at times. Stop trying to get the work done so fast. Everyone needs to learn the business and know the ins and outs to keep the company from always being charged with something that could have been avoided. Get people to run it that ACTUALLY know and want to learn the work that the employees do. So many problems can be avoided and business can be ran smoother.

    Pros

    The people were great and everyone was willing to offer assistance. The work was challenging and provided analysts to solve complex problems. The company has a partnering law firm to sign off on legal documents to avoid any legal pitfalls

    Cons

    Growth opportunities were not apparent. The work at times became very production line based.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to rid itself of being a silo. Departments need to communicate better to allow the employees to learn and grow.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity for advancement if you are talented and driven. Very customer driven and innovative.

    Cons

    Difficult economic factors contributing to lack of growth within the credit industry as a whole impact growth and opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain talent and innovation in preparation for inevitable growth once lending practices improve.
