    Not what I thought it would be

    (Current Employee)
    Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsHousecleaning, nice people, fun parties.

    ConsSeems like it's all a rouse. They tell you things in the interview, and make promises they have no intention of keeping. When reminded of what was promised, you get a lot of push back. CEO has stepped down and a new CEO in place who doesn't share the same vision and a lot of the people, including me, who've been here many years feel that all that made it a great company, is now gone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet back to the core that made the company great in the first place. Get rid of new CEO and reinstate the old one.

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

    Hi,
    I'm sorry to note that our recent leadership transition seems have been challenging for you (and other long term employees). Both, Pankaj (the new CEO) an I have been cognizant of retaining and

    Horrible Company

    Program Manager (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsThey place you within good companies

    ConsThey don't support you, or provide you with growth opportunities. They don't increase your salary

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees better, they are not Slaves. Management should touch bases with their workers in the field. They only care about their Clients.

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

    Akraya doesn't care about their consults.

    Program Manager (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsYou were contacted about a great job opportunity.

    ConsYour career becomes stagnated, they do not give raises after you are hired into a position. There is absolutely no support from from management and staff, the internal turnover rate is at about 75%, I have worked for them for 2 years and have had 4 account managers. The position is currently open and being filled by someone who was the receptionist last year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to care more for your employees than the clients that you support. Support your contractors and help them achieve career goals. Whoever thought of the tag line wasn't a contract working for you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Akraya's cultures and Values give full contentment to me - Yamuna Ganesan

    Systems Analyst (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsAkraya has successfully established business-consulting services with top IT companies.
    This creates trust in client to gladly take on a bigger role in their businesses.
    The process that HR takes to identify receptive candidates help Akraya in executing the engagement for long run and survive in the competitive environment.
    Immigration team has the ability to handle individual issues efficiently and does its best in assisting with excellent immigration solutions.

    ConsGreat range of direct clients in IT, maybe should expand into other industries

    Right place to be if you are a consultant in Bay Area

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Mountain View, CA

    ProsI have been here for over 2 years. They are an extremely consultant oriented agency unlike typical body shops that you find in the Bay Area. They took care of my immigration needs very well without any hassles.
    The management is open to feedback & suggestions and strives to delivering what was promised.

    ConsMore consultant parties will be welcome

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

    Employment with the new company

    Storage Administrator (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsThis is a good company to work at. They have a lot of clients that they can place you at and the company had good direct clients

    ConsI dont see a downside with working for this company. These placed me at a client location in San Francisco and things have been good so far

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A great place to start a career

    Client Success Specialist (Current Employee)
    Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsGreat colleagues, experienced management, great opportunity for advancement.

    Akraya is not only a great place to learn/advance in the staffing industry but also a fun place to work. From day one your colleague's make you feel like part of the team and will be happy to help/give advice to help you succeed.

    Great benefits and perks and a fair salary.

    ConsVery fast paced industry, requires a lot of multitasking. Akraya is in a state of expansion right now, so the organizational changes can be a little confusing at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpgrade our T-Mobile Cell data plan so we can use our mobile phones as wifi hotspots.

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