    Pros

    You can gain experience in interacting with clients and perhaps land job opportunities. This is how consulting business work world wide, but the local owners at this company, dont understand this.

    Cons

    It is a typical family run business. The head of the company is a bully. I had seen him yell and talk down to employees so many times. He abuses people on an ongoing basis; lower your rank, the stronger his wrath.
    No career opportunities, as all the area head positions are filled by incompetent family members.

    The company head takes it personally, if you resign. He demands that you change your decision; happened to some of my friends.
    They pay you as little as possible, tell you again and again, that you are blessed to be employed by them and when you resign they say "how about we match your new salary."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to respect people and not exploit and berate and manipulate them.
    Have more industry professionals lead practice areas, instead of incompetent family members.

    Pros

    The company is one big shmozzle, a fraudulent master piece, a tax evaders heaven.

    Cons

    Abacusconsulting Technologies (Pvt) Limited, a Lahore based company with offices in Karachi and Islamabad has been involved in major tax evasion for years. The HR record for the company is another sorry state of affairs. The employees are severely demoralized and the work conditions are extremely sub-standard with frequent mal-practices on the employee rights front. The poor employees of the company bear all this because of the poor economic conditions in Pakistan. The company perse is involved within the consulting business for the development sector, yet it pays no taxes except the bear minimum that is the mandatory turn over tax of 1%. How shameful can that be. Besides the directors of the company are involved in corrupt practices on USAID and DFID projects. The company has been pulling a fast one on the people of Pakistan and the development sector for years.

    It is sad to see a TAX EVADING business fool so many people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your time in the market is numbered. Your corrupt practices are exposed. Get your act straight
