    Pros

    Overall good when compared to several other companies
    - no restrictions of WFH, fairly free
    - free cab facility
    - friendly environment
    - Use several new technologies in some BU's

    Cons

    - nothing much except some late work hours in some projects
    - no sync between business units. each work independently with lack of coherence and politics to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    - Frequent churn in high level management which leads changing vision/strategies
    - though it is a product company, it takes time to infuse PRODUCT culture and nurture innovation
    - Need to product management in the front seat to see the real customer problems and use technology to solve them. not vice versa.

    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.

    I worked at Altisource full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    High salary.
    Highly qualified colleagues; people from whom you can learn. Organization has mastered the art of running the BPO operations successfully; not the technology operations.

    Cons

    Chaotic work environment.
    Knowledge is not respected. More emphasis on "show some output" irrespective of the fact whether output aligned with organizational goals or profitability.

    Advice to Management

    Relook at the way technology is handled. Build methods and processes aligned to knowledge based work.

    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 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.

    Since you weren't here very long and you didn't include a job title, I am not sure if we ever had a chance to meet. However, your concerns are relatively vague but I'd be glad to look into if you ... More

    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.
