    I worked at Topco Associates as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    There was not a lot of pressure in my department and the people we very friendly. They are open to moving driven professionals to different departments based on interests and also cooperate with schedule demands such as moving part time due to family planning. Pay is also fair and they don't expect late night after late night. Great work life balance. I was there as a contract employee and treated very well. They hire on many of their contract folks so I wouldn't be afraid to take a temp position in hopes of moving to full time.

    Cons

    The low stress environment can almost be boring and many of their processes are a bit antiquated. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend a friend here but it was not my cup of tea.

    Interview Details

    Met with hiring manager and heard back within 2 weeks. The hiring manager was not professionally dressed and seemed to be disorganized. I did enjoy our discussion though. Especially her honesty on how awkward the company felt right now.
