    I worked at Ofori & Associates full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of good things, lots of good treatment, Federal Government Contracts. Good pay. Good Benefits. Nice place to work. 10 years.

    Cons

    They thought too highly of themselves, management had lots of positives but not the on the ground experience of doing the actual work. Lots of promises to clients but sometimes emply.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on promises to clients, more phone coverage for customer complaints, more reasonable expectations of employees and more actual contracts needed.

    I worked at Ofori & Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ofori & Associates, REO of Atlanta was a nice place to work overall. It is a friendly and productive office. Business casual attire allows for you to relax and work comfortably. Decent pay and positions don't require you to have a specific degree with 10,0000 years experience like most other employers want.

    Cons

    The biggest con would definitely have to be the lack of vertical growth. You can only move horizontally, as will your salary. Also, this company is a contractor for HUD. So you never know if and when the operation will be shut down.

    Advice to Management

    The only thing that I think I would recommend is putting more emphasis and organization into training new employees.

    I have been working at Ofori & Associates full-time

    Pros

    Compensation for employees are okay. The most rewarding is the health care benefits which are $1.

    Cons

    Managers do not take responsibility nor are they qualified to be managers. It's all about who you know in order to have ANY position in the company. If you rub elbows with the upper management and suck up pretty well you can ensure a position. If you know anything more than the "managers" who fell through the cracks and got a promotion because they were friends with someone in HR, they feel threatened. This job is made for anyone who doesn't know anything about REO. I'm not sure how you can put a group of unskilled and unknowing workers together and call the business a functioning unit. HUD's worst choice for an AM. There is no room for growth and once you realize that you quickly want to leave. Do not work here if you seek reward for your work and you want more than the cap that they place on you. Believe me the ceiling is extremely low here!!! And besides this is a contract job, who knows when the contract will end? It could be any day now and we would never know because of the lack of communication with management.

    Advice to Management

    HR and Upper Management should fire themselves and let someone who knows better fill the positions.
