    Pros

    If you are fresher then there is lots of opportunity to learn because you can work 10 to 12 hours daily. Also there are online , class room based training programmes available yo help mostly freshers. Only work and no play.

    Cons

    Here self declared genius management think that 3 freshers are more intelligent than a 7+ years lead and senior software engineer( 2+ years) can replace the lead.if you are joining as a lead then better start looking for other options. It's totally depends on your luck, if you are lucky then you will get good projects. If you are knowledgeable and ready to be managers puppet then there may be some hope for you. Even on notice period they would try to force you to work on weekends. Don't expect credit for your hard work. As per growth it's very less compared to market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worst practitioners in the tech industry

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    In the US they have a very nicely priced healthcare plan

    Cons

    They are contractors but they do not look after the best interest of the company that contracted them. What they look after is how to increase their revenue and will sacrifice work efficiency at the expense of the client. The so-called professionals that they field from outside of the US are sub par at best. Quality of work is consistently sub standard. Offshore resources are mostly new graduates and are learning on the job at the expense of the client. As a professional for many years, it was an embarassment to be associated with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your projects much more closely. Do not simply rely on the paperwork that you are given. Conduct impromptu on-site audits.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Pensacola, FL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Pensacola, FL

    Pros

    They offer(ed) job opportunities to local residents with little, to no insurance experience.
    It's conveniently located toward downtown, Pensacola.

    Cons

    Poor Senior Management, as well as poor departmental consistency. Lack of communication within and between departments. No team cohesiveness. No consistent core values are practiced. Payroll is often incorrect. Favoritism is extremely apparent, which may impede advancement opportunities. No career growth opportunities. HR picks and chooses how to enforce company policies and picks and chooses the concerns to address. No job security. They do not mind discarding long term, loyal employees and continue to employ some uncaring, unmotivated, individuals who do not care about their employers' success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you talk the talk, walk the walk. Attempt consistency regarding corporate policies and procedures among all departments, not only picking and choosing individuals or groups to enforce rules upon. Be seen more, communicate, not dictate to employees and understand each employee's value and commitment to the organization. Quit gossiping about other employees among each other and stop having, long, unnecessary & unproductive meetings.

    Pros

    Good medical benefits. No other pros.

    Cons

    Employees are not treated well. HR has no voice and never makes an attempt to listen to the employees. Managers are too snob and don't treat the employees equally. There is no one with whom you could share your concerns so nothing gets resolved.

    Work environment is totally unprofessional and very stressful. IT department and Payroll process is very slow and inexperienced.

    Pros

    Nothing good i found so far.

    Cons

    1. Very poor management.
    2. sucking policy.
    3. Not employe friendly.
    4. They do not care about employee.

    I had a offer with them and they gave me the joining date. I did my lease breakage but when only 7 days left in my lease they told that they are not able to transfer my H1B. They kept me on hold for more than 2 months. Because of them i ended up losing lot of money in renewing my lease and shifting to new house without any reason. I wont suggest anyone to entertain this company. They are not up-to mark on their commitment.
