    I worked at CRIF Lending Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great PTO. Great location, free parking.

    Cons

    The company is going through numerous changes after part of it was sold. After that they had no training, no support. You pretty much have to figure everything out on your own. No support from HR what so ever. They made lots of promise that they didn't keep. Talk a good game. Ask for everything in writing.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent

    Pros

    Great PTO, client first mentality, and a great place to start a career.

    Cons

    It was a great company to work for but once the VP left and a director was “promoted” to a job else where, the days were numbered. People jumped ship left and right. Then it was bought out and everyone was let go. People that worked there for 30 years. Experts in credit solutions and Bureau knowledge that cannot be replaced. The company continued to concentrate on money rather than people. Ironically the Business... unit that made the majority of revenue was not invested in. Meanwhile they threw money at platforms that lost account after account. Each year there was a new strategy and each year it failed. HR is a joke and did everything to keep salary costs as low as possible. People got MBOs when there was revenue generation, just people leaving.

    Advice to Management

    The new management strategy was to rid themselves of all the people who knew most about the most profitable products. They believe they can do the same thing as Italy and get the bulk of customers off th old platforms onto their newer more expensive ones. This will not happen. Invest in upgrading the profit generating products and bring back home grown development and experts on the products.

    Pros

    Great benefits/PTO time. Company has the right idea about how to make a profit. Overtime is always there if you want it.

    Cons

    Too many employees that don’t care making the work load and atmosphere horrible. Management seems to look the other way for some employees but not others. Some people that have been promoted should have never been.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at who you have in leadership roles. Look at the employees that really put time into their job.
