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

    Pros

    Some of your teammates will be excellent to work with. A handful of helpful managers may provide guidance and help you navigate the twisted, complex politics of a textbook corporate company that swears it's an agile startup.

    Cons

    Buzzwords and lofty hopes and dreams will fill your interview, but none of them will ever be realized or acted upon. Berkadia is not for you if: - you're a true UX or design professional - you're looking for a design-driven company that embraces UX from the top down - you believe in a developer-driven design methodology with no real interest in adopting UX best practices - you're a developer who likes autonomy or...

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Support your talented employees. Stop the finger-pointing and immature reactions to real problems that lead to your best talent leaving you. Act directly instead of punishing everyone for a single outlier's problems. Listen to your employees' ideas, concerns, and issues and actually do something about them instead of letting them play out on their own. Do a better job vetting programmers for...

    I have been working at Berkadia full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I sincerely do not have anything good to say about Berkadia except that it pays my bills.

    Cons

    There is lack of diversity not just in senior management but in the overall employee-base of Berkadia. They outsource a lot of projects to India which they use to claim that they care about minorities. In the United States, Berkadia is 99% not diverse... if you are not Caucasian, Berkadia is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Search your souls, look inside yourselves and accept that you have challenges integrating minorities into Berkadia.

    Pros

    If you want an environment where people love their work, their colleagues, and their customers then Berkadia is for you. Senior management is top-notch. Majority of key business decisions are driven from the top with middle management brought in along the journey. There is a continued emphasis on transparency and people are empowered to get the job done the best way they see fit. Quite easily this is the best job of my...

    We are a growing organization. We've doubled IT in size since I joined less than a year ago. Definitely growing pains but our leaders are committed to improving the environment for our people.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower and enable your people!

    Pros

    -Good Resources -Exposure to different asset classes -Good Health Insurance -Good place to work for about a year and then find something better

    Cons

    -Unskilled Managers: while they may have been with the company a long time, it does not make them fit to manage people. Openly shows favoritism, discusses grievances about employee with other co-workers. Ignores complaints about unprofessional office behavior. -Unprofessional office: Young employees who spend a great deal of the day "screwing" around. Claim to be busy but have time to play games. Shun you for not partaking...

    I worked at Berkadia full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company seems to be moving in the write direction under the direction of senior management. Good work life balance. Good future

    Cons

    Still not as good to work for when it was owned by GM. There has been a lot of termoil over the last 8 years with layoffs and the company being sold by GM. The corporate headquarters is a dump with leaking ceilings, bugs, and small bathrooms that stink.
