    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    I worked at Berkadia full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits are okay but for a large company you would expect better

    Cons

    Houston office notorious for negative work environment and demanding and difficult management. No HR on site to assist. I think other companies are fine but there is little work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge the contributions your team makes instead of demeaning when mistakes happen.

    Cons

    Every company have some or the other cons and i believe its all the same - average hike - average bonus - one can be a victim of politics

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and understand their queries. Do not compare process's and follow the same strategy all over the company. Change strategy based on the process work.
