    I worked at RCO Legal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Off the bat, I was given a very generous benefits package including of 120 hours PTO in the first year. Decent pay to start.

    Cons

    Very disorganized and they place unrealistic goals that are not obtainable. Those that work hard are not recognized for their hard work and those that slack off all day get promoted. No raises are given. Lack of communication. HR is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and their feedback. Maybe hire people who qualify for the position instead of just to fill seats.

    Pros

    Good people. I enjoyed the working with the attorneys and legal staff. The benefits are really good and the company tries to take care of its employees when they can.

    Cons

    With the downtrend of the mortgage default industry, this company has downsized significantly. Most of the perks and ability to move-up has also dried-up.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to giving raises with reviews, even if it is small, the employees need something to keep them there.

    Pros

    Over time these diminished although fundamentally they still exist. Opportunity to grow and learn. Many great people and peer relationships. Entrepreneurial culture. A member of a family of companies with a good diversity of related but disparate business goals.

    Cons

    Erratic strategic direction. Ineffective senior leadership. Over time growing from a small family of companies to a larger set with unclear goals. The jump into having a C level suite where they presented a united purpose never came together. The businesses became fiefdoms instead of a functional group working to complement one another. Now the business cycle has declined and many of the people who worked so hard have left or RIF'd (this includes all of the COO's and one of the named partners).

    Advice to Management

    Set and hold a course. Provide a plan to follow. Stay present, available and engaged. Remove the culture of fear. Eradicate the gossip including that which is often in the executive suite.

    Pros

    There are some really great people here in the trenches. I really don't have any other positive things to say about the company other than they used to be really good at what they do, it's sad, really.

    Cons

    Worst management team I've ever worked with/for. Leaders constantly argue in front of staff, are disrespectful to each other and their employees. The leadership also continually complains/bad-mouths their own clients internally.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together - unify yourselves as one leadership team and support your people who are breaking their backs to keep the business coming in. Follow through on your commitments to your employees.
