I have been working at Altisource full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Very smart coworkers, lots of money to play with. Challenging problems and room for creative thinking and solutions. Decent pay.

Cons

Better negotiate your salary and title because it is NEVER changing.
The recruiting team is the adult equivalent of "Mean Girls", doing whatever they want with no regard to other employees with whom they share office resources. Management is reactive, changing direction and priority constantly which leaves engineering in chaos. Not a real startup at all even though they keep trying to sell it that way. No flexibility with work schedule, stuffy, uptight leadership team from HBS...no real technology leaders. Benefits are pretty weak.

Advice to Management

Hire some people who know how to lead a software company successfully.

    Pros

    You can very well put your title as a paycheck recipient. No one cares if you don't work, but you will have to ensure that you don't ask the right or tough questions to anyone, else you will get fired.. Immediately.. I have till now maintained my job as I have stopped asking questions..

    Cons

    No one can speak up.. As employees are treated with utter disrespect by the management team. The CAO is a dictator living in the 18th century - He is the primary reason for all the attrition and bad culture. Absolutely incompetent.
    The Facilities team is supremely bad.. We have the worst possible infrastructure in a Tech/Financial Services company. The Facilities head is a useless guy who has no sense of what and how the infrastructure should be built. You will see him setting up the stupidest of rules.. For e.g it becomes a huge issue if you do not take your cab to office if you have signed up for it. You will in fact lose your job for doing such things.. The only thing this whole company cares about is to keep squeezing the employees and make whatever small $ possible in the name of cost saving. They are not a tech company and possibly cannot create any tech product which can give them $s hence they try to make whatever is possible from the slave shop.

    In short.. Horrible horrible place.. Stay away.

    Advice to Management

    They need a new facility head and also a change in guard in the CAO role as he is the one who creates and enforces that employees be treated with no respect whatsoever in the name of stupid cost saving strategies.. Totally a sad place if you are an employee.. You will be constantly demotivated.

    I worked at Altisource as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity as a contractor to develop personal skills was tremendous. Great emphasis on teamwork, as well.

    Cons

    Training could have been more structured, but was reasonable.
