    Pros

    Salary is competitive You get paid overtime People are smart and pleasant and very dedicated You can learn many new technologies based on who your client is

    Cons

    Your a consultant so once a project ends you do not know where your going next. Sometimes you feel like the only important thing you do is make money for the company. Depending on your client they sometimes treat you very much like a consultant, no regard for personal time. You may have to travel, you just might have to travel quite a bit. No career path when you consult. You may not like what your currently working on but you do not have much of a choice, it's not good to be on the bench.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employee's, improve on training, communication between employee's is an issue, need a better process for reviews.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Olenick (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone screens (2 )of 30 mins each. One with Talent Manger and the other with Technical Team Specialist. Final Onsite Interview with Olenick Team and Manager . Process involved a one-on-one review of resume , technical skills and behavioral questions. Level of difficulty on a rating scale (0-10) : an easy interview on a scale of 9

    Interview Questions

    • The team was very professional and asked technical questions based on my experience . Unix experience and the commands used? Asked to verbally give the Syntax of an Update SQL command.( writing it could have been much easier). Overall lack of appreciation for confidence in the answers that were given for the interview.   1 Answer
