    Pros

    The work/life balance depending on the client. There isn't more pros, it's a really bad company to work for.

    Cons

    No career opportunities and benefits if you work in a client.
    The company values and culture suck, there aren't any events and I only know the colleages who work in the client with me.
    Each manager has 100 employers to attend, he is very busy to dedicate 1 min to you.
    Poor salary.
    The worst company I've never work for.

    Pros

    The most advantage is getting experience in multinational/structured companies.

    Cons

    You are otally selled to the customer and you get a salary equal to a 1/3 of what customers pays. When you're assigned to a project you don't exist for your company, if the project finishes you'll be again 'meat' to be selled!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more consultant with a little bit of experience
