    I worked at Berkadia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Berkadia is beginning to build a lot of brand new tech, and it is very exciting to be a part of. Because of the growth that they are experiencing in the technology product division of the company, there are a lot of opportunities to move up and take on new challenges and responsibilities. I have never worked for a company that has actually practiced the values that they preach as Berkadia does. The executive team invests...

    Cons

    Because of the massive and very quick growth of the technology side of the company, there are some growing pains. There is an influx of a lot of new talent and ideas coming in and there are always decisions to be made on the direction of products. There are many disagreements that occur. It is very hard to develop new products especially in the beginning stages that Berkadia is in, but it is also very rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest time and energy into developing a good culture.

    I have been working at Berkadia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Love my coworkers! We've done well at hiring amiable and talented people. What's great about our growth is that we've brought in more like minded individuals to help influence a culture change. It's slow going, but we are breaking away from a deeply rooted traditional corporate mentality. There is movement to make developers more comfortable, such as a snack wall and team activities twice a month. We have the...

    Cons

    The hiring and interview process paint a picture of what the company wants to be, but Berkadia has a long way to go before we get there. Here are some things I wish I had known when deciding whether or not to accept a position at Berkadia: 1. Growing pains and cultural conflict Berkadia is trying to transition into a tech company but a complex organizational structure and politics are making for a slow transition....

    Advice to Management

    Layers of middle management are hiding the true state of the business from you. Get involved with the teams and listen to their suggestions and concerns. Pay off the tech debt. Consider Gall's law. Optimize for team autonomy. You hired talented individuals, trust and empower them to do their work. Remove the processes and impediments that are encumbering and preventing them from delivering value to users and the...

    I have been working at Berkadia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work that is challenging, rewarding and fun. Berkadia is changing its business to become the best well funded (thanks Warren) “startup” in Utah. It’s an established business that is disrupting (in a good way) itself. People are treated as people, not resources. The only company I have worked for that lives it’s professed values. It’s the right balance of taking the long view, and holding each other accountable to...

    Cons

    Growing pains from such huge growth, but I am confident that the values and mindset will prevail. Some mid level roles need more experience, but this is by design. We work to grow people within the organization, and promote within.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to teach values and hope that other companies don’t copy your formula for success.

    Pros

    Berkadia will pay a very good compensation when compared to other companies.

    Cons

    1)Highly job insecurity, its one of such company where i have seen the insurity of job for the IT people, you need to be in hell praying each day to keep your job secured. 2)You can be fired at any point without prior intimation, and there is zero scope of learning. It can never be a company where you can see your future. 3)The management feels that you are doing nothing when you actually do your work perfectly....
