    I have been working at Altisource full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing such, which makes the company better than others.
    Except one thing, salary structure is more transperent and the 15k outdoor medicine policy is good.

    Cons

    1- Not at all employee friendly
    2- Very bad and dumb managers. Employee can go to only washroom without managers approval, rest everything is tapped by manager.
    3- Does not matter you work hard, no apreciation, many fake apraisals
    4- Bad in HR, fake and show off to display the HR works to top level managers
    5- Slave like work culture, punch in and out, if not 8 hrs/day, loss of pay
    6- No PTO approval even if your family member dies
    6- Many more to come..

    Advice to Management

    1- Employee should get recognition
    2- Flexibility to be allowed to employees, for PTOs, WFH
    3- Punch in and out , slavery system to be made user friendly

    I have been working at Altisource full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance is only good for few teams in the organization while the remaining struggle even to have their lunch or dinner on time. You will learn to work in very high pressure. Good knowledge gain on different technologies. Some managers are really knowledgeable and will help you build professionally.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Irritating management. Partiality in terms of gender and religion (Specific to my team) You can easily see the difference between people from good institutes and private institutes.
    Agile here is a myth. Management never takes story points from the individual. Yet they spend all their money on agile coach rather than the engineering teams who are actually working.
    No team outing or lunch or dinners.
    No working hours limit (Manager can call you at 2 am and ask you to sync with US team as they are suddenly online) and you can't even complain as in that case you are not taking responsibility, you dint want to grow in your career.
    For the team of 26 people we have 6 managers - Agile coach, development manager, testing manager, VP-development, VP-testing, Product manager.
    Too much chaos and way too much politics. Half of them are just waste.

    Advice to Management

    Please take some input from your engineering team too. They are the people who are actually (literally) working day and night to release the product.

    Lacks skill development supportive environment.

    Pros

    Good Compensation!! Better Hike %. Little flexible on timings

    Cons

    No steady Management, they fire whenever they like to fire. No values to work we do. Top Management have a disconnect with whats happening in India.
    Every 3 months stragegy changes. we will have to reverse what is done.

    Advice to Management

    Have better VPs and take people only on need basis, not for showing in your portal that Alitosurce grown 5000 plus employees but for the past 2 years you have been firing

    Pros

    Only good thing is be lazy and dont do work . There is no work promotion and encouragement culture.

    Cons

    Once you in .. negligible chance to learn new technologies grow professionally or financially. Even after approaching to vp ,no one gives importance to your words.

    Advice to Management

    Make salary equal and proportional with skills and experience.give equal importance to each and every employee.

    I have been working at Altisource full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible office timings (so you can work from home on weekends or late nights).
    Good initial salary.
    Free commute.

    Cons

    They operate as tech companies used to operate in '80s.
    Learning is minimum. No new ideas appreciated. No new innovation.
    Ad hoc work. No proper planning. Higher management has a blurry vision.
    HR processes are meaningless and add no value. In house IT support will make you cry for a small workstation upgrade (if they do it at all).
    Initially salary might look good but within 2/3 appraisal period, you will find yourself behind industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Sack a few more directors, managers and other top brass. Bring in people who know how the industry works these days and where to focus and how to implement. If you do things the way you've been doing, you will get same results as your are getting. And currently the results do not look good.

    Pros

    Good place to work , Ambiance is good,

    Cons

    Your Managers are the ones who decide what you need to do. your suggestions have no value.

    Advice to Management

    the HR or the Employee Engagement Team has no role to play, its Only the Operations which decides, this has to be eradicated.

    I'm not aware of any company that the HR department is telling managers what work to assign their people. So maybe I'm misunderstanding your comments?

    I worked at Altisource full-time

    Pros

    * Interesting field/domain
    * Lots of learning opportunities

    Cons

    * The architecture of the the products needs to be re looked. Too many dependencies and contraints. Hence very vulnerable to failure. this would automatically lead to more working hours and disruption in work life balance.
    * Global Teams, hence need to be available to meetings almost 24 hours.
    * Too many approvals for even basic work related software.

    Advice to Management

    HR policies and employee benefits needs to be re-looked. If you are not one of the best in the market, at least try to meet the average.
