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

    Pros

    People are nice and want to make improvements. Some very skilled people with passion. Potential to be part of the team that brings it all together for the next wave of growth. Free snacks and good employee engagement.

    Cons

    Like most companies that have grown quickly, there are some challenges trying to get every business unit to connect. Can be frenetic at times with some long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Work on creating a solid infrastructure and 'One Altisource' culture. Make sure you are not so busy trying to hire that you forget about those contributors that have helped leap you forward or keep the ship steady.

    Pros

    The Pay is ok, but that's about it

    Cons

    Terrible management. I'm actually in a position that shouldn't be hard or stressful; however, upper management is generally unqualified for their positions (they were basically hired because they knew someone). Further, if you challenge upper management and let them know that you you're not just a worker bee and you're actually educated with degreeS (yes, multiple), they get intimidated and figure out a way to push you out of the door quickly. The company (at least my business unit) also has some unethical ways of doing business, which really make me feel as though I am compromising my integrity.

    Advice to Management

    Find jobs that you are better suited for and get out of your feelings when someone below you doesn't fold at your every demand.

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

    Pros

    There was a Vision for investing in technology,
    opportunity to learn new things and can work latest and greatest of the technologies.

    Cons

    Always some financial pressure and lay-offs as the major revenue come from only one of the customer.
    Less customer/clients for many of the divisions
    Too much diversification, Jack of all trades in real estate domain but not perfect any area, eg: Hubzu, Owners.com, mortgage builder, Pointillist, Lenders One etc....

    Pros

    Before the debacle with Ocwen, there was some positive direction with solid momentum towards diversification. Even though the building was shaky, one could sense the presence of steady progress.

    Cons

    Since the stock drop, Altisource has ceased any efforts for long term sustainability, entering a state of hibernation. Downsizing wherever they can without regard for the consequences. The leadership is scattered and unfocused, seeking only immediate gains to postpone the inevitable fall.

    A starving giant, cutting off it's arms and legs to reduce it's calorie consumption, delaying it's ultimate demise.

    Advice to Management

    Brush up your resumes.

    Pros

    Benefits, great people, lots of opportunity to learn

    Cons

    TERRIBLE communication between departments, TOO MUCH TURNOVER, typical corporate atmosphere

    Advice to Management

    Invest more into the people you already have on your team, make room and PLANS for their growth rather than focusing on always being ready to replace people because they are "not a good fit", upper level management needs to be more connected to the ground level work being done
