    Pros

    For certain positions at the company you might be able to work remote as a contractor.

    Cons

    All the company cares about is numbers. Number driven. Don't care about the employee/contractor no matter what they say. No room for advancement at all. Tried for years and asked numerous people numerous times and they always had excuses.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your employees and treat the contractors (remote) like people too.

    Pros

    Company is desperate for staff and hires anyone.

    Cons

    Owners sold out to Wipro - Indian outsourcing company. Jobs being sent overseas. Seattle office closed.

    Advice to Management

    Your lies will catch up to you. Morale is at zero. Quality is low.

    Pros

    None. I have nothing good to say.

    Cons

    This is an unethical company led by people engaging in dishonest and deceitful practices for both the client and the employee. The most unprofessional group of people I have ever had the misfortune to associate with. The place leaves one with the desire to shower. Frequently. Very sleazy.

    Advice to Management

    Not intelligent enough to understand the consequences of their self- destructive behaviors if it was delivered in a pop up book. Worst company and job I've ever had in my entire life by far, including my job at McDonalds at 16.

    Pros

    If you are an independent worker and need very little instruction and feedback it is good, nice office, flexible work hours, no micromanagement

    Cons

    Very intense, limited instruction too fast paced, complicated computer system that has problems and too many rush assignments. No feedback or interaction with management. Even full time in house employees are not given benefits and treated as contract, remote workers. Workflow is not regulated on different job sometimes every 2 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    The employees should be hired after 90 day probation when they are working every assignment given with no supervision.

    Pros

    None, my experience was disheartening and humiliating.

    Cons

    I left a job to accept an offer from Opus, I passed their initial testing and was offered a job based on my interview and resume. A week and 4 days into training I was let go along with another trainee. The trainer profiles trainees under the false pretense that while working on practice loan cases trainees should "take their time" and "ask questions" because thats what we were in training for and she has found that people who do so perform best once out of training. Diversity is not welcome, the training atmosphere is very stressful and contradicts what they paint themselves to be. I was told that my resume did not support my performance in training, only after being unjustly and prematurely profiled by the trainer. I had completed 3 practice files of which the first two were done following the trainers recommendations of asking questions and taking my time to make sure I absorbed the material.well. That was used against me and when I asked the manager to please reconsider and give me fair time to prove myself, since I reaceived really good feedback on my third practice file, he chose overlook that and insulted me stating he would consider me for "data entry". Now I am jobless and with no means to support my family, after they were the ones who sought me to work for them, with such little time that I could not put my two weeks at my previous job.

    I emailed the HR representative with questions and never received feedback

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and be more professional and humane, hire a trainer and management that will welcome diverse employees and will not ridicule nor profile people for doing exactly what she said would be most beneficial, training if for learning, not for chopping people's heads of and be mocked. Make sure your trainer aligns herself with the companys mision and vision, and that she truly conducts herself as arepresentative of the brand and management rather than mocking them for being from India.

    Pros

    The hope filled emails that promise PERHAPS, MAYBE and SOON......

    Cons

    Director/Ownership Greed, Lies, Using of people for their gain, speaking down and usage of "your skill set" as it correlates to veteran professionals. High expectations set within an unreasonable time frame purposely so that they can reprimand and not pay if not carried out. Uncaring desire to teach entire staff or license/certify all staff so that they are not selected for reviews that they need to survive. SOOOO many more...see the list!

    Advice to Management

    You all know exactly what you've done. You also know that us internals and I'm sure many remotes have documented all that has been done as far as lay offs to W-2 employees - there is no need to list it all here......Law of gravity! Everything comes down

    Pros

    Unless you have no other option than unemployment, don't waste your time and don't leave your current company.

    Cons

    Completely soulless, cutthroat and unapologetic for anything that they say or do

    Advice to Management

    Not even worth bringing it up to them because they wouldn't listen anyway.
