    Pros

    The foreclosure manager was the best boss I have ever had! He made work amazing and he is the reason anyone could work there

    Cons

    The attorney partners were basically slave drivers. Macho and arrogant and rude. You felt disrespected and under appreciated.

    Pros

    Nothing at all is good about this place.

    Cons

    Micromanaged by managers. They all gossip behind their employees backs. A lot of favoritism with those that suck up. They wouldn't hire anyone and instead throw a 3 person workload onto 1 person. The pay was a joke. In 2014 everyone was given a 25 cent raise. This company is a joke and won't go anywhere fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all the managers and start over with managers that want everyone to succeed.

    I have been working at National Bankruptcy Services

    Pros

    Nice facility with perks like underground parking and on-site gym

    Cons

    Feels like you are at a lockdown prison camp all day at work and social interaction is not only discouraged, but reprimanded.
    No matter how hard you work you will never get praise.
    Management seems to lead you on and dangle an unattainable carrot in front of your face to keep you on, however none of their promises for advancement opportunities ever come to fruition.
    I use to love this place and had such high hopes for my future here, however the low moral that floods this office and empty promises have made me dread coming to work on a daily basis.
    Needless to say, I am looking for something better where I am allowed to get out of my seat more than twice a day for a fifteen minute break and able to chat with my neighbor every once and a while to bring some light to this horrible place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up and realize how your overbearing, micromanagement techniques are running off your best employees.

  6. Small company with very negative employee moral.

    I have been working at National Bankruptcy Services full-time

    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.

    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

    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

    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.
