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

    Pros

    Interview and selection process.
    People who are working there are pretty smart.

    Cons

    Management in Boston are completely clueless. They have been burning money for last two years, however, absolutely produced nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Management should talk to the engineers to get the scoop. Local management has been fooling the upper management in Luxembourg.

    Pros

    I got a paycheck ever two weeks

    Cons

    having unlicensed people over a brokerage is not a smart idea or move. I can't believe they have been in business this long.
    People are promoted based on who they know or kiss up to not actual job knowledge
    The blind leading the blind
    Poor pay structure and bonus plan is completely false.

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the current leadership and hire people with actual real estate knowledge to be over the brokerage. Hire actual leaders to be in leadership positions.

    I worked at Altisource full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The employees are very loyal and hard working.

    Cons

    Red tape within management team. You need to be their real close friend to advance

    Advice to Management

    Hire for strengths of the employees, not because they are your friend.

    Pros

    New technologies, highly entrepreneurial and dynamic. Decent funding and flexible work environment. some groups work like a startup and have independence to some degree

    Cons

    offshore team works crazy hours. very bureaucratic and old fashioned processes. not so good if you want real product development experience. Lot of legacy work.

    I worked at Altisource (Less than a year)

    Pros

    i have no pros that i can provide about this company. just filling space to get to the twenty word minimum

    Cons

    lay people off randomly, as company has been downsizing for about a year + now. when they are done with you, you are let go as fast as they can get it done

    Advice to Management

    figure out your strategies. plan accordingly and provide your employers some stability. or you will continue to have people come to your company only to be laid off, randomly

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

    Pros

    As I move into my second year, I have really observed a major transformation in the last year, company has added a smart focus against strategic goals and put into place some really smart ways to measure success across the company. As a mother, I find the work/life balance to be much more manageable than other roles I've had at other companies - it does help that I have a good manager too. The new office space has done wonders for team collaboration. Many new products coming to market in 2016 - it's been an exciting ride

    Cons

    Cross-team sharing could be improved with more internal communication. Would love to see more employee programs communications globally.

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

    Pros

    Fast-paced, no unnecessary managerial layers, executive accessibility and responsiveness, casual dress code.

    If you thrive in large, layered, bureaucratic organizations where you can coast through a comfortable 6 hour work day…this is not the place for you. If you like to just work for a paycheck and need to be hand-held, Altisource may not be the best fit for you. If you think the weight of driving organizational change rests exclusively on the C-Suite, perhaps this is not your next home. However, if you want to roll up your sleeves and proactively work to create value for a company, then consider Altisource. If you trust that the quality and strength of your daily work drives your future opportunities, then consider Altisource. If you like to make an impact, then consider Altisource.

    As I begin my 2nd year here at Altisource, I am really starting to appreciate the immense learning opportunities I have at my disposal. My professional development rate has climbed sharply since joining Altisource and there is no slowdown on the horizon. Make no mistake about it, you will be challenged by the pace at Altisource and you will need to adapt to keep up. That pace, however, illustrates (to me at least) the huge opportunity all Altisource employees have to make their presence felt. No company is perfect and there are still many changes that could make my daily Altisource experience a bit more pleasant, but Altisource provides me with the necessary support, tools and environment to make these changes happen myself. I don’t have to wait for someone else to do it. That is rare in a large company.

    Cons

    There aren’t any offices and you will age more quickly at Altisource than if you decided to be, say, a Wal-Mart greeter.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing…building a diversified business, listening to employee base and demonstrating internal transparency.

    I have been working at Altisource full-time

    Pros

    Lots of smart people here. Nice office space and easily commutable. I've had the opportunity to take on additional opportunities here and have moved into a more advanced role. Management has been very supportive and hands on - at least on my team. Pay is above market. Was concerned by all the reviews but haven't run into the problems highlighted elsewhere yet.

    Cons

    Benefits could use some work - vacation is okay but 401k is poor. Having consulted for a while having any benefits is a plus but it sounds like they aren't as competitive here. In tech the domain ramifications are minimized to a degree but it still feels uncomfortable that the company is headquartered elsewhere when the business is so US focused.

    Advice to Management

    It looks like progress has been made since the end of last year but more could be done to push past all that negativity. It usually feels like executive leadership is unconcerned with morale and leaves that to employees but positivity needs to be more of a focus from the top.

    Pros

    I wasted precious time giving Altisource the benefit of the doubt despite the overwhelming negative opinions that employees expressed on Glassdoor.
    I received a paycheck. No other pros to working for this company.

    Cons

    Management is unprofessional even though the environment is very "corporate"

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. Stop treating employees as if they are nothing. Seriously, RESPECT is under-rated at Altisource...Stop feeding employees lies that HR is changing for the better, especially if you have 0 intentions of doing so..

    Cons

    Use wonderlic to judge if eligible for employment - must score 28 +

    Advice to Management

    Figure out if someone is qualified - not based on a prelim test. Figure ways to foster employee growth - don't let recruiting be incentivized by only new hires not internal transfers as they are discouraged from promoting.

    Recruiting is actually given a very large incentive to hire internally. Additionally, the Wonderlic is a tool we use as part of our hiring process. It is not a sole determinant for anything ... More
