    I worked at Optaros full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They've done a great job of building out a team of mostly intelligent and capable people, they've landed some big-name clients in the past, and the pay was OK. They do a pretty good job of being transparent inside the company. They will promote you fast.

    Cons

    Despite spending a lot of time on training and documentation around what the process for their projects should be, they end up re-inventing it with every project / every new hire. Some of the managers / directors are jerks just for the sake of being jerks. On several projects I was on the sales guys or project managers seemed to just, on their own, make up schedules and estimates for the project and expect us to hit them. They haven't really been very good at landing new clients lately; the clock is ticking on their main cash cow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on The Airport Test for hiring managers and make sure you'd actually want to spend 8 hours with them. This person will be the main point of contact for your staff and your clients, it's important they be likable and fair. You've lost some really great managers over the last year, people who really cared about their teams. Many of the managers who are left aren't really the sort of people the staff would ever want to have show up at a happy hour, and have reputations for throwing people under the bus if their projects starts to go sour. Managers should be human shields for their team, not slave drivers.
