    Worst company to work for

    Associate - Projects (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsNone. This is one of the worst companies to work with. The only reason employees stick with this company is because they file greencard.

    ConsPeople suck. No one helps you, you are on your own.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrow up

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The most unethical company & money hungry.

    Senior Associate (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsCompany is growing, managers are having good time...

    ConsThey hire people from US (mostly Indians who are 1-2 years near visa expiry) with all sort of verbal promises about green card.
    They initiate the PERM process when the time for visa expiry is less than a year. For the PERM process they will post the advertisement incorrectly so that PERM application gets audited. In the past three years they are near to 95% audit on all PERM applications.

    They do all this to send associates to India at 1/4 the package they give in US. This way they don't have to spend money for direct hiring in India and they get the creamy layer for a very low price.

    This is not the end, when they move people to India they won't pay the full lease breakage. The max is two months rent. They don't pay for relocating household items. Above all, the managers will screw your life if you raise your voice.

    Very honest advice don't join this company in US
    If you have green card or US citizen things could be different otherwise be ready to shell out money and don't expect any support.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink about people who work and makes money for you to achieve your revenue target. If they are gone, this company will not grow.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stagnant

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsThere is good experience to be had with some clients.

    ConsLack of promotions, insulting salary increases for promotions, no career path defined, no recognition for employees going above and beyond. Poor environment to work in. Poor leadership communication within the North American division and the company in general. Poor HR communication regarding the many changes in policy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees with respect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
