Diana Plazas is Onit’s financial analyst in the Houston, Texas office. For more than a year, Diana has been crucial to the inner workings of Onit’s Professional Services Group. Diana was tasked with analyzing large sets of historical data of Onit’s past implementations and turned this into a model to help better estimate Onit’s time investment in the enterprise legal management implementations based on their specific characteristics and level of effort. Each day, Diana applies Onit’s value of passion – “being successful or achieving any goal takes hard work. When there is passion we find meaning and determination, and we are capable of achieving almost anything.”
Diana recently joined Onit’s finance team and continues to develop her skills as she completed her chartered financial analyst level 1 certification and is working towards completing level 2 and level 3. “I truly believe that developing these skills will not only make me a better professional but will enable me to contribute more at Onit.” Diana’s favorite part of Onit is that she is able to work with a “genuine group of people that truly enjoys sharing knowledge, support your initiatives, and make you feel valued.” The catered lunches on Wednesdays also make hump day that much more exciting!

Kanchan has always been passionate about working closely with Onit’s customers. As she progresses through her career, Kanchan looks forward to continuing to collaborate independently with customers and contribute more towards identifying their pain points rather than only being a contributor in resolving them. When asked what her favorite part about working at Onit, Kanchan shared that “it never feels like a burden to start a new day. The main contributing reason behind this, I feel, is the openness in culture.” Additionally, Kanchan has been impressed by “being empowered to take decisions at very junior level compared to other bigger players in the industry. This gives a sense of ownership and responsibility which means, every individual gets recognized for their work.”
