    Pros

    Very exciting company to work with. Focuses on emerging technologies and it's latest acquisition of a digital solutions company reinforces its commitment to its customers.

    Cons

    CEO has shifted base to the US and spends less time in Bangalore. A new leader is appointed to manage India operations; however the team in India has less exposure to the CEO now.

    I have been working at Ascendum Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The only thing I can say that is nice about this company is the you do get to work from home 3 days a week.

    Cons

    There is way too many cons to list them all but here are a few. They are unethical and will make you tell lies to the clients. They will cheat you out of earned pay. Management will use you too hide their own mistakes. Sub par pay for the job. Will lay you off when business slows down. HR will not help you if you are being harassed and will threaten you if try to go to EEOC or lawsuit. Raciest. Will fire you if you mention that you are a Republican and god help you if you mention that you voted for Trump . But these are just a few....

    Advice to Management

    Upper management and all of HR needs to be fired ASAP. The are unethical and are all lairs. They will make you do things that are shady at best and will get you into trouble in the mortgage industry.

    Pros

    Commute was not so bad and it was in a nice part of town.

    Cons

    Horrible management and no clear direction for team.
    Comparatively bad salary for the industry.
    Terrible, terrible benefits.
    Company seems to routinely sacrifice good employees for cheap labor.

    Advice to Management

    You've seen some awesome talent pass through there. You'd think you would want to occasionally keep some of those people. In the short term, you may see a better bottom line but down the road those decisions will make a difference when clients have gone to other companies with better retention and happier employees.

    Pros

    Learn what not to do!
    Good parking and location.

    Cons

    Below is is my opinion of Ascendum:

    CEO seems more interested in flirting with the young females than running business. He loves a culture that produced a country #1 in poverty only. Management seems immature with attitude and lying is a normal strategy leaving many employees and customers highly disappointed.

    Basically the employees are low-skill imports and whoever else will work cheap. They complete a simple training course which is poorly designed with bad content. The Leads have nearly no technical skills however they are excellent at brown-nosing as needed on demand. They throw new talent under-the-bus fearing the competition.

    The office reminds me of a very-used office furniture store. You need to squeeze in and out
    of tiny cubicles. Everything appears monitored including daily bathroom visits.

    Only the desperate, inexperienced, meek, or crazy tolerate this place.

    Advice to Management

    Up your game and manage the egos
    Treat people with respect
    Focus on good business practices

    Pros

    They paid hourly, so I took in a lot of money. They didn't try to keep me from getting unemployment.

    Cons

    I was on a project with a big client. All team members were constantly asked to work 70 ~ 90 hours per week, give up weekends and not take vacations. Because of the size and name of the client, basic employee rights were neglected. An entire team was moved over an hour commute away to make room. Priorities constantly changed and I could never finish one task before it was labelled as lower priority. I was let go after a Thanksgiving vacation I took/refused to give up for them. Also, their 401k plan was laughable.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees than your clients. If your clients make unrealistic demands, they're not worth it.

    Pros

    Even though they place you in bad opportunities, they still get you placed. Even though they couldn't get a single paycheck deposited correctly, they still got something deposited.

    Cons

    Bad placement, Paychecks are consistently incorrect, Mistakes made on benefits - 401k distributions deducted from pay, but never distributed to your account.
