    Pros

    Relationship focused environment that creates good dynamic between employees

    Cons

    Sometimes can be too focused on emotions and not enough about getting the actual job done. They are always wanting you to share your feelings.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time focusing on what is truly important.

    Pros

    Worked on a good contract. So, the pay was decent. Management was great!!

    Cons

    Doesn't seem to be a lot of room for growth. No salary increases during my tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better opportunities/contracts for advancement.

    Pros

    Has accounts with multiple firms. Works in different business sectors.

    Cons

    Treated like a temporary employee within host company. Little support from Allegis once you are placed. Benefits aren't great (401k plan is awful). Management is hands off and if something does go wrong, they won't talk to the employee until it is too late to fix. High turnover. Very little training. Lengthy and messy hiring process. No support when a placement ends.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees; check in often to see how their placement is going. And when there is an issue, be open and upfront about it so that you and the employee can work together to find a positive solution instead of coming to them out of the blue.

    Pros

    Benefits aren't bad, but certainly not the best in the industry Situationally, work-life balance can be decent

    Cons

    Compensation is mediocre Very much an "inner circle" kind of company. If you're in the circle, you're golden. If you lie outside of it, you'll go nowhere fast. VERY little support for career growth and development

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is generally good. They bond frequently at bars after work, do other events together. You can have a lot of fun there and generally they are supportive of you personally.

    Cons

    Cliques - if you are in it's great. If you are not, you will find a getting into management and beyond quite difficult. How you work and play matters here. It's not just about tech smarts or even great business sense - above all it is about making and keeping friends and not rocking the boat. The tech part of IT suffers because of this though.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of clearing out all the workers, maybe clear out some of the long time employed managers. It is a log jam up there with every manager and above having been there for a decade (min) and some for 20 years.
