    I have been working at Altisource full-time

    Pros

    Great pay - great benefits - excellent free food and drinks - Starbucks in house - barber in house - really fun atmosphere - laid back management- little to no micro management-

    Cons

    There are not too many downsides to working here but sometimes the creativity of an individual may be overlooked because of the political and personal opponions of others - stick to your job and keep your head down and you will be fine

    Advice to Management

    Respond to ideas that you say are good. Listen and don’t just act like you are. Load energy drinks in the fridge for us (Mountain Dew gets old sometimes) . Put nut free snacks in the snack bar!!

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

    Pros

    No pros. This is a poorly managed company in every respect.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Management in Lux is clueless about the business operations - completely out of touch. They run the company like a low-level production operation, treating employees (even sr. management levels) like they are working in an overseas sweatshop. Execs don't trust competent people to do their jobs. The level of micromanagement from the exec level is the worst I've ever experienced. And the company has a history of regular massive layoffs. They are ruthless and inconsiderate in firing competent ppl who have a documented history of excellent work.
    If you are looking for a great company, good benefits, and financial security for your family, Altisource is NOT the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    None. Also, not looking for a canned response from the HR VP. These issues have been pervasive for years and have not been addressed. I won't be wasting my time to send him an email.

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

    Pros

    The day this company finally folds. If you really can’t get a job anywhere else, are homeless and hungry, this might be your place but I think I would choose losing a few pounds first.

    Cons

    Unethical. Uncaring. Greedy. Untrustworthy. Incompetent. Failing. Layoffs during the holidays are tradition. There is a good place for companies like this, out of business.

    Advice to Management

    Who is this condescending HR guy that responds to these reviews. He is a long term employee now, wow made it a couple of years now. He will be singing a different tune when he gets his walking papers. Everybody does sooner or later. Yes I really worked for Altisource and no I won’t reach out. When getting laid off there wasn’t any reaching out.

    Pros

    Really nice people, everyone from the recruiter (Tara) to the Hiring Manager (Inaas) and everyone else involved in the process.

    Pros

    People who work hard to get their daily salary. But hopefully not longer. If not already by the know now who truly they work for.

    Cons

    The list is too long but everything points to Executives and Leadership. They have zero, if not negative, Moral and Dignity.

    Advice to Management

    Watch the Scrooge with you kids and grandchildren. Maybe you learn something from it.

    Pros

    - Decent benefits
    - Nice people
    - Flexible workload

    Cons

    - Do not provide challenges to keep smart/good employees around
    - Lot of politics, management have their favoirtes
    - No transpanrecy
    - Management doesn't understand the business they manage and does not take any ideas from people under them
    - Do not hire the right people for the job. Do not understand the concept that hire over qualified people will be a problem in the future because they do not have enough challenges to keep them around
    - Do not encourage employyees to take initiatives. They rather have a button pusher vs a game changer.
    - With horrible leaderships and wrong people/resources Altisource tend to poorly execute new programs

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right leaders, and provide them with the right resources to execute business plans. Provide your employees with enough challenges to help them develop and keep them around.

    Frankly, I am curious what group you were in if you didn't feel challenged work here. The amount of growth and changes we are experiencing require team members at all levels of the organization to... More
