Consultant Beware

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Y-AXIS

ProsSeek another consultancy firm that is fair- not dubious, pays employees righteously, doesn't treat consultants like cash cows, Consultant please beware!

Cons1. Salary Expectations
b. As per contract and initial management encounter, promises are made that payday will be on the “7th” of each month, however after coming on board you learn the actual payday (when you receive funds in your bank account) isn’t until the 11th of each month- or how they like to put it in perspective “10th at night.” Note it may be delayed, if management decides to process it on the 8th instead.
c. Looking to get a project sooner? So you may be open to relocation anywhere throughout the country. Let’s say luck is on your side, and you happen to find a project…say somewhere on the opposite coast. Well you will need to make living arrangements. Living arrangements means you need to sign a lease. Signing a lease means paying the lease on time. Paying the lease on time means it is due the 1st of every month. Good luck with trying to persuade management to get paid “on time.”
i. Managements answer “Manage your cash flow accordingly.” Meanwhile they are getting paid every 2 weeks.
d. The company cuts from every paystub the following benefits which you never received:
i. Unemployment benefits
ii. Disability benefits
iii. Family Leave Insurance,
iv. Unemployment Insurance
2. “Desi” consultancy
a. During your initial screening you’ll be offered a wide range of promises. But truth be told what you end up with is:
i. No relocation benefits
ii. No referral credit
iii. No vacation, holiday, or any PTO (Paid Time Off’) - despite being a W2 employee and legally entitled to it.
iv. No onsite support
v. Bogus contract
3. Living Accommodations
a. Probably one of the worst. If you are looking for a temporary stay at the company’s guest house, prepare yourself to sleep in one smelly and dirty environment. Did I mention roaches?!?!
4. Management
a. If you have any questions or concerns and are a trying to get a hold of management, well good luck because that won’t happen any time soon.
b. If you do happen to get a hold of the company president-Ashish the guy never delivers. He either “forgets” or was “too busy” to remember.
c. The company president has such a hostile attitude toward his consultants
d. Instead of treating you like an employee of the company, management treats you like cash cows.
e. Worse of all, managements plays these sneaky games when it comes to your paycheck- it’s bad enough you have to wait once month to get paid!
5. Marketing Tactics
a. Pushing marketing tactics
i. Just so the company can start earning a share of your hourly rate, they will place you on a project you have no idea about. So prepare yourself for a job you cannot do. In the end what will mostly likely happen you will be back in their office for marketing.
b. You will be lucky to receive 3 Job requirements in a given day. Throughout the course of the week, possible job requirements could range from 5-10 positing. As a consultant you probably have better luck marketing yourself.

Shady Business

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Y-AXIS full-time

ProsI do not have any to share

ConsMisrepresents itself online and on career boards
Requests for information were met with rudeness and vague responses
Upper management hung up the phone in my face when I asked for some clarification

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
