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

    Pros

    Make lots of promises, thats it. Noone acts on those.

    Cons

    This is a typical example of big words and no action. When I joined, there were so big promises, was told there is new blood, which will transform the company, but having spent a year I see all are big talks.
    My work – was promised so much by the recruiter, in reality peanuts compared to it. No challenge, manager not interested – everyone seems to be busy making their resumes.
    HR – the less said the better. I doubt if HR exists – yes we do see them at times to create some noise and make some more promises – none fulfilled. If you look at the promises made by the leaders Altisource should have been the best employer but then comes reality. Its so easy to talk and difficult to act.
    I made a mistake by joining here, strongly advise – you will hear lots of big things, how the company is changing everything – all these led by HR, but these are hollow talks, nothing exists in reality. Don’t fall for it.

    Advice to Management

    Get down to some action. Get rid of those who only promise, shut down HR and get some doers.

    They pay well, in return of good technical expertise. The Boston team is very friendly and knowledgeable. You can learn a lot. Work hours are flexible as long as you get the work done.

    Cons

    The business goals are not so clear and keep getting updated quickly. The offshore-onshore model is different.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time connecting with employees.

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

    Pros

    salary + benefits, most weekends off. paid holidays. talented people on my team.

    Cons

    toxic culture. middle management was clueless to the day to day operations. very high turnover. no system internal system infrastructure. antiquated technology for a tech company. no positive feedback for a job well done but quick to reprimand a mistake.

    Advice to Management

    hire managers that actually know how to conduct real estate in this decade. encourage the team dynamic. implement systems to assist your employees instead of making them figure it out on their own.

    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.
