    Aggressive Company to Market You!!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPay is always on time. Never had any issues about this.
    Marketing department is aggressive
    Training is satisfactory
    The whole ASTA CRS Team is approachable and if there are any issues/concerns - they have responded well.

    ConsHealth Insurance is expensive
    Base rate for freshers is not too appealing
    Have to negotiate a lot for an increase

    Advice to Senior ManagementProbably offer some free 'specific' courses/ tutorials/online training for various applications (for freshers as well as people who have been with the company for a while)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not what they used to be

    Vice President (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat benefits; wonderful colleagues (if you get in the right business unit/group), lots of room for growth - lots of long term employees

    ConsSenior management is "scattered" - often going in different directions. Doesn't stand behind it's Ethics Policy - will let clients say anything and do anything they want to you and you have to take it. Will do anything to "win the business" then walk way to leave the employees to clean up the mess.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to your roots / core business. Understand trying to be the best in the industry but you are taking on too much at one time. Also, remember that it's your tenured employees who want to be loyal and you are not loyal. Trying to attract and retain the best talent - don't know what you are doing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    OK Consulting Company

    Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

    Pros- Pay: On time. Very Sharp ! very professional no BS.!
    - Placement level : good
    - Accommodation : Decent
    - Quick Placement (At least for me)

    Cons-Like someone wrote previously, "Very poor pay rate". you will get tired of begging them to raise. Been working there for 2 and half years still hasn't been fully satisfied by the pay.
    -UN-Affordable health Insurance
    -The Company is too greedy in terms of getting money from you. MUST Speak up to get good rate from them. if u stay quiet, Gaand marte hain :)

    Advice to Senior ManagementWould Advice Management to take their employees seriously as there are hundreds of other agencies out there as their competition. Also Keep their "So Called" contract in pocket and not threaten them with it because the folks now are more smart than you think and know their rights.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    experience at ASTA CRS

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)

    Pros1) People are Professional
    2) Pays salary on time. Never ever delayed my salary. Fixed date or prior not delay.
    3) Prompt on issue on salary. They made a wrong deduction in my paycheck but within hour the mistake was rectified and balance was deposited immediately.

    Cons1) Low pay rate, at-least that was issue in my first year term.
    2)Typical consultancy company, tries to squeeze every penny from you.
    3) Once you are placed you are money machine. They will not even bother about you that are you alive or dead. Once in every 2 months marketing guy will send you an email for touchbase with same text every time.
    4) They train in one discipline but marketed in other filed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe training method could be more better. They train in Business Analyst extensively but market in whatever market is hot. For a fresher, he/she needs market in whatever is available but it makes it difficult to get job and then survive if you get one. Training should be provided in those field that have good market.
