    Pros

    There is no such good thing at all.

    Cons

    They just offer the good salary while joining, but no good opportunities to work for.
    If the project doesn't come then they just fire the employees without looking into their skill,not even providing other options to work.

    I worked at Altisource full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is very good. But that is primarily because you don't have any work.

    Decent pay masters.

    Swanky offices.

    Cons

    Cons are many.

    Weak HR leadership lacks the spine to do the right things. Vindictive people who will not bat an eye lid before deciding to demean the efforts of anyone who has decided to part ways with the organization.

    Leveraging core competencies of people isn't what the HR team does. Work allocation is pathetic. No one really has a clue as to what they are doing or what is it that they are trying to achieve.

    Good people prefer leaving the organization to sticking around and ruining their careers as is evidenced by the number of attrition that is seen in the HR team in the last few months.

    Advice to Management

    Make some radical changes in your HR organization. The lead based out of US will otherwise ensure the demise of this organization.

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

    Pros

    No pros, Some basic pros are like transport, food and weekend allowances, No career growth and economic growth. My strong recommendation is please don't join.

    Cons

    1. No proper management
    2. Politics by top people even for simple/silly concerns
    3. Firing ratio is more then hiring.
    4. No hike
    5. Daily work pressure and even common in weekends.
    6. Very bad management.
    7. For freshers no options but lateral people ignore this if I have other offers.
    8. Director/ Manager will announce awards, later if you ask hr for the same we won't get any email or certificate for the same.
    9. Mine was small team with 12 to 14 people. 4 lay off happened and all were less than 3 months from their date of joining.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to those who actually raise their voice for the purpose of company. Directors and managers are all very cunning and play cheap politics even with junior engineers. Try to have skip level meeting with all team people quarterly or at least twice a year.

    I worked at Altisource full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good infrastructure, transport, food
    Sometimes above Mkt salary
    Possibly if play smart, one may get away doing nothing

    Cons

    The list is endless:
    1) No product vision - guys just don't know how to build anything, leave aside products. No way to prioritize, understand customers, etc. Sr. Mgmt says something which just gets done blindly
    2) Work culture prohibits learning and growth. People are v hesitant to change
    3) Rumors of layoffs come every month. It is painful
    4) If your group doesn't fall in goals of senior mgmt, you r treated worse than step child

    Advice to Management

    You need to ask yourself, how can one get just impotent bunch as you together. Shame that you r wasting Default home loan guys' money and wasting careers of aspiring talented bunch

    Pros

    Good Salary
    Get promotion by doing average work
    For people who follow managers and do what they say, even if its a wrong decision will enjoy this workplace

    Cons

    Management is selfish about promoting themselves and lack technical know how
    Bad office culture and discussion on petty issues
    People who talk more are promoted, there is bias to favorites
    Mid level managers in so called good projects are egoistic and play politics to get ahead of each other.
    Micro Management is at its best

    Advice to Management

    They will not improve, so no use in advising them.
    People should avoid working with such a management and join better workplaces

    Pros

    Burn your blood and learn politics.

    Cons

    Manager thinks, he is the son of the Director. Being rude with team members. to escape from the job he splits his work to others and earn huge money at end of the month.
    what ever you complaint to HR, no action will be taken against seniors. I suggest, it's not a good company to work with.
    HR's are not active people just they come here to do time pass and earn huge money.

    Advice to Management

    There is no use to work, up to you. experience was worst. Note : Be clear and carefull about your Salary take home.
    They may cheat people, later they may come up with different types of shocking deduction.
